UU Fellowship to hear about Jefferson Bible

On Sunday, Aug. 15, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be: “The Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth,” presented by local author, Julie Loar.

She comments that “While Thomas Jefferson, who was known as a Unitarian, worked in the White House, he decided to edit the Gospels.  His intent was to uncover the essence of the life and teachings of Jesus by extracting the message of love and service, and eliminating elements of doctrine which had been added later by the church.” 

Loar will explore the significance of the results of Jefferson’s efforts, which should provide fertile ground for group discussion.

Loar is the multiple award-winning author of six books and numerous articles, as well as a prominent educator, astrologist, and authority on Egypt and ancient mythology.

This Sunday, the young people will  explore the out of doors and see what they can come up with to create new art.  Who knows, perhaps it will be good enough to display with the other exhibits in the meeting hall.

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.
