‘Why Lincoln Matters More than Ever’

On Sunday, Feb. 19, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Why Lincoln Matters More than Ever,” presented by Lizz Baldwin.  

This sermon about the life, ideas and words of Abraham Lincoln honors “Presidents’ Day,” officially celebrated on Feb. 20.

Originally, this sermon was conceived and delivered by the Rev. Roger Bertschausen of Fox Valley Unitarian Univeralist Fellowship in Appleton, Wisc.  He asserts that, “Times have changed since Lincoln was President, but issues of racial and economic equality still persist.  Recent developments have caused American citizens, more than ever, to be concerned lest ‘government of the people, by the people and for the people’ shall perish from the earth.”

Elizabeth Baldwin, who has long been active in the local UU Fellowship, will present the sermon and recite the famous Gettysburg Address.  In the wider Pagosa community, Lizz is known for her talent as an actress.  Another newfound love is competing as a member Pagosa’s roller derby team. 

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.
