On Sunday, May 29, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Reflections on the Possibility of Living a Life Without Aggression in an Age of Terrorism,” presented by Debra Travis, Program Director at Tara Mandala Buddhist Retreat Center. “On this Memorial Day weekend, we will explore together some of the difficult questions about aggression, justice, safety, and our own relationship to power, both internally and externally,” she points out.
She goes on to ask, “Is there really such a thing as a ‘just war’? And can we envision the possibility of electing a leader who says that ‘war is not an option’? If not, what does this say about us, our society, our values, and where we are headed?”
Travis has been on the Buddhist path since 1982. She has traveled the world studying and practicing in the Ravadan Buddhist tradition, has taught dharma and meditation to individuals and groups in the United States and other parts of the world, and has been a presenter at numerous conferences and workshops.
The children and young people will honor Memorial Day as they celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost, especially in war.
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 sStation, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
