On Sunday, Dec. 13 , the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a talk by Ilene Haykus, “Embracing Our Religious Roots,” based on interviews conducted with members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowships of Pagosa Springs, Colorado, and Sedona, Ariz.
Haykus comments that, ”As the holidays centered on the winter solstice approach, it is not uncommon for Unitarian Universalists to feel conflict between pleasant childhood memories and the fact that, as adults, we often no longer embrace the religious ideologies upon which these holidays were based.” She goes on to question, “Is it possible to find harmony between the traditions of our past and our adult beliefs?”
Haykus, a practicing psychologist and counselor, has been a longtime member of the Pagosa UU Fellowship, and a popular speaker at many Southwest UU churches and fellowships. After several years of living in Sedona, she and her husband, Peter, have moved back to Pagosa Springs.
The children and youth of the Pagosah UU Fellowship have been taking time to learn about themselves, their neighbors, and their place in the world. This welcoming program affirms and promotes the worth and dignity of every person. For more information, call the Religious Education Coordinator, De Anna Hoyle at 264-7224.
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.
