The sources of Unitarian Universalism

On Sunday, July 31, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will consider “Unitarian Universalist Sources,” in a presentation by Julie Loar.

Julie points out that “The living tradition of Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources.  Among them are: the direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;  and words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion and the transforming power of love.”

She continues the list with: “Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;  Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;  Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and  warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;  and spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.”

Julie’s latest book, “Goddesses For Every Day:  Exploring the Wisdom and Power of the Divine Feminine Around the World,” has won two national awards.  Her popular astrology feature appears in ATLANTIS RISING magazine, and she is a featured contributor on John Edward’s website, InfiniteQuest.com. 

Due to scheduling problems, there will be no childcare available from July 31 through the month of August.  It is the intention to begin again in September

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.
