On Sunday, June 3, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Prayerful Science,” presented by Susan Junta. She explains that “In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was Unitarian in spirit, ‘when science is learned in love, and its powers are wielded by love, they will appear as the supplements and continuations of the material creation.’”
Susan continues, “This talk is inspired by entomologist Jeffrey Lockwood, professor of natural sciences and humanities at University of Wyoming and a member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Laramie, Wyoming. In his book ‘Prairie Soul: Finding Grace in the Earth Beneath My Feet,’ Lockwood expresses a ‘sacred reverence’ for nature which is deeply embedded within his soul. What would the world be like today if more of us had this kind of ‘sacred reverence’ and deep kinship with the natural balance and sustainability of nature?”
Susan Junta, a retired psychotherapist and chair of the Pagosah UU Worship Committee, will present this way of looking at “the interconnected web of all existence of which we are a part,” which is one of Unitarian Universalism’s Seven Principles.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is 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.
