‘The Second Source of UUism’


    Special to The PREVIEW

    On Sunday, June 23, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service will explore “The Second Source of UUism,” in a presentation by Julie Loar.

    Loar explains, “Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that does not operate from dogma, but rather is informed by Seven Principles and Six Sources. This framework supports the free and independent search for truth and meaning that unites UUs in spite of diverse beliefs and paradigms.

    “The Six Sources are part of the formal statement of principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association and were adopted in 1984 and amended in 1995. They represent the backbone of Unitarian Universalism and offer a rich foundation from which to grow our spiritual lives.”

    Throughout this year, Loar will speak on each source.  This Sunday, we will examine Source Two:  “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.”

    Julie Loar, an award-winning author, is a past president of the Pagosah UU Fellowship and director of operations for the Archuleta County Education Center.

    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.
