On Sunday, Nov. 13, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “UU and American Higher Education: Historical Notes on a Not-So-Odd Couple,” presented by Richard Richardson.
He points out that, “Recently the Fellowship watched a sermon on DVD by the Reverend Angela Herrera of the UU Church in Albuquerque. She talked about some of the historical roots of the UU faith, tracing them back to the dawn of recorded history and linking what we believe and what we question to many of the great traditional sources of belief and inspiration.”
Richardson explains that, “The related but much more modest goal of this presentation will be to reflect on some of the ways in which colleges and universities, Unitarians and Universalists have interacted and influenced one another during periods of major development in American Higher Education to the present day, including recent development of community college services in Pagosa Springs at the Archuleta County Education Center.”
Richard Richardson, professor emeritus of higher education, New York University, lives part-time in Pagosa Springs, where he is on the board of directors of the Archuleta County Education Center.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, and child care will be provided. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn East on Greenbriar Drive off North Pagosa Boulevard by the Fire Station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome!
