Ancient deities and timeless wisdom

On Sunday, Sept.19, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a talk by Julie Loar entitled “Egypt:  Ancient Deities and Timeless Wisdom.” She points out that “The monuments and history of Egypt have an endless fascination for people around the world.  The civilization flourished for more than four thousand years and their legacy and influence permeates most cultures.”  She goes on to ask “Why are we still so fascinated with pyramids and pharaohs?  What calls millions of people every year to visit the country that borders the great Nile River?”

Julie Loar is the author of six books and dozens of articles, and is an international teacher and scholar of myth and symbolism.  Her latest book, Goddesses For Every Day:  Exploring the Wisdom & Power of the Divine Feminine Around The World, has won two national book  awards.  And every year she takes a group on a lecture tour of Egypt.

From our UU Sources, we learn that wisdom from the world’s religions inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life. The children and young people will play a matching game of sayings from different religions and write their own wisdom statements.

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.
