Unitarian Universalists to hear about Ostara


By Joan Ward

Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Please join the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in-person or on Zoom on Sunday, March 19, at 10:30 a.m. to learn about Ostara with Michael Demchak.

Ostara is an ancient Pagan holiday (also called a sabbat) that celebrates the vernal equinox (March 20) and the return of spring. This is a time when the Earth is coming alive and recovering from winter.

As the plants and trees begin to bud and bloom, it is also a time to reawaken ourselves — a time of renewal and rebirth.

Join Demchak as he explains Ostara, its symbols, traditions and history. He will also reflect upon the spring season and share what this time on the wheel of the year means to him spiritually.

Demchak is a member of the Fellowship Steering Committee and chair of the Worship Committee.

Join on Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8991941305 or call (346) 248-7799. The meeting ID is 899 194 1305.

Depending on the current COVID recommendations, please be prepared to wear a well-fitting mask, if deemed necessary, while in the building. Social distancing will be encouraged and, to that end, the maximum capacity of the fellowship has been reduced to 25, a very good reason for arriving a few minutes early.

Our fellowship offers each individual support in their unique spiritual path and an opportunity to participate in positive social and environmental action. We welcome diversity and invite everyone to share in our faith community.

Find us in Unit B-15 of the Greenbriar Plaza, 301 N. Pagosa Blvd., on the north side facing the mountains. 

Services are on the first and third Sundays of the month at 10:30 a.m. Meditation is on the second and fourth Sundays at 9 a.m.

For more information about the fellowship, our services and the meditation group, please see the website www.pagosauu.org. If the service is canceled due to weather conditions, it will be announced on the website by 8:30 a.m. on Sunday.
