On Sunday, May 1, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Engaging Our Theological Diversity,” with a presentation by Ilene Haykus.
Haykus points out that, “The Commission on Appraisal is a part of the UUA whose mission is to ‘energize and revitalize’ Unitarian Universalism, through ‘deep reflection’ upon our faith. Their report argues against the idea that ‘one can be a UU and believe anything’.” Ilene will outline conclusions from this report, such as the nature of the cosmos and humanity’s place in it, the source of religious authority, the role of reason within our faith, the nature of good and evil, and the purpose of worship services.
Haykus holds a master’s degree in psychology and has been practicing as a counselor and clinical hypnotherapist for over two decades. She also is a past president of the PUUF.
The children and young people will consider Baha’i, a fairly new world religion, which has its roots in Islam, and the celebration of Ridvan. They will also create a Unitarian Universalist ritual with a flower communion and celebrate by making flowers and learning how the ritual began.
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.
