On Sunday, July 17, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will consider “Science and Religion” in a DVD presentation by The Reverend Angela Hererra .
Hererra points out that, “Science and Religion have often been posed as opposites. Science tries to document the factual character of the natural world, and develop theories that coordinate and explain these facts. Religion operates in the equally important, but utterly different realm of human purpose, meanings, and values, subjects that the factual domain of science might illuminate, but can never resolve. These two different areas of teaching require different kinds of tools.”
Reverend Hererra, a recent graduate from Harvard Divinity School, wrestles eloquently with the deeper issues of life. She is currently a minister in Albuquerque, N.M.
Julie Loar takes over for the departing DeAnna Hoyle as director of the Children’s Religious Exploration (CRE) program.
She comments, “We will all miss De Anna and her incredible contributions to Religious Exploration at our Fellowship. As we move through this transition it’s important to note that my role will look different. I have not spent years getting certification, so I cannot replicate what De Anna gave us. Instead, I will try to function more as an administrator and hopefully bring cohesion to the hard work and efforts of many in our congregation. I will need your help. As the saying goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’”
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.
