‘Let Freedom Ring’ Sunday at UU Fellowship

On Sunday, Jan. 23, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.  The service is entitled “Let Freedom Ring,” and will be conducted by the Sunday Service Committee.  They remind us that the Reverend Doctor King was awarded The Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and, at age 35, was its youngest recipient.  He was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

The cadence of his melodious voice and inspiring words and deeds still echo down through the years, challenging us (as stated in one of the UU Sources) “ . . . to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.”

Hearing the story, “The Very Short Rule,” will give the children and young people a chance to learn more about Jesus’ teachings as they continue the month of looking at the Christian religion. They will gather to explore what praying is and write a prayer of their own.

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.
