‘Building a Home’ embodies basic principles

On Sunday, Nov. 29 , the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Building a Home,” presented by Elizabeth Baldwin, outreach and advocacy coordinator for Colorado Housing Inc.  

She points out that, “This organization was originally founded over 35 years ago to address the affordable housing needs in the greater Denver area. In 1995, the organization was brought to Pagosa Springs to serve southwest Colorado and to provide home ownership opportunities using the self-help home building method.”

Baldwin, a local artist, businesswoman, teacher and performer goes on to say “Colorado Housing Inc. is devoted to providing essential housing opportunities by building skills, building homes, and building communities. This program also relates directly to two of the seven UU principles: ‘The inherent worth and dignity of every person’ and ‘Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.’”

Religious Education Coordinator De Anna Hoyle reminds us that “The time of giving is just around the corner, and our children’s program is getting ready to ‘open shop’ for their holiday bazaar.  As we continue creating gift items for others, we will explore what is means to grow spiritually,  and by listening to what’s inside us we can discover more about ourselves.” 

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.  All are welcome.
