On Sunday, Nov. 21, the Pagosah Unitarian Universaalist Fellowship will hear “A Thanksgiving Sermon” presented by the Fellowship’s president, Joan Ward.
She comments that “Spriritual gratitude is the fundamental appreciation of our time on this earth. Gratitude is the natural expression of a loving heart. Every time we express appreciation, we help heal the world.”
Joan will delivert an adaptation of a sermon by Edwin Charles Lynn. The gathering will include an opportunity to put notes of thanks (paper provided) in our Thanksgiving basket. There will be a discussion of how we can show our gratitude by sharing with others, with examples of what the Fellowship currently does and what else we can do.
The service will be followed by a silent auction to raise funds for a new sound system, and then, a festive potluck. The turkey will be provided. Please bring side dishes and your own table service.
This week, as we move toward the Thanksgiving holiday, the children and young people will take inspiration from Buddhism, which they have been studying this month, and practice gratitude as revealed in this religion.
The Children’s Religious Exploration program runs concurrent with the service and is for ages 3 and up. For questions regarding this program, contact De Anna Hoyle, 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.
