‘Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism’


Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, March 17, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “The Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism,” presented by Julie Loar.

She points out that “Universalism is a faith tradition that encourages individuals to develop a personal faith. Unitarian UUism draws from many different religions, in the belief that no one belief system has all the answers, or truth, and that most have something to teach us.”

She further explains that, “Unitarian Universalism is not based on any single book, creed or doctrine. Instead, UUs are guided by our seven principles and six sources.  Our faith teaches us that discovering our spirituality is a personal journey, and the light of truth can be found in many different places.”

In this talk, Julie Loar will describe the Six Sources and focus on Source One: “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.”

Julie Loar is an award-winning author and has served on the steering committee of PUUF and been coordinator of religious education. She currently is director of operations for 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 of North Pagosa Boulevard by the Fire Station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.  All are welcome!
