On Sunday, Jan. 31, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a talk entitled “Engaging with the Larger UU World,” presented by Julie Loar.
Attending a recent Mountain Desert District (MDD) conference in Fort Collins inspired her to learn more about the wide ranging activities of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the multiple ways in which the organization supports member churches and, in turn, their members. She will share her growing insights and appreciation for the enormous support and resources offered by UUA.
Loar is an award-winning author, international astrologer and taroist. Her work includes performing readings and consultations, as well as hosting monthly full moon meditations in Pagosa Springs. She also conducts classes and workshops, and leads a yearly educational trip to Egypt.
We celebrated the New Year and Sunday the Children’s Religious Exploration will celebrate a different kind of new year . . . one for trees. The Jewish holiday Tu B’Shevat was created in the Middle Ages by the Kabbalists, who looked for meaning in everything. In Israel, the Jewish homeland, thousands of trees are planted onTu B’Shevat. “The Man Who Planted Trees” is a story from France that brings to us the theme of planting trees to represent the spirit of the holidays.
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.
