Sunday, July 27, 2014: The Importance of Asking Questions

In many ways we are quite lucky to live in an age with vast quantities of information and knowledge. Using the methods of modern science humanity has unlocked the power of the atom and discovered many of life’s secrets. Yet even with the vast amount of information that we hold at our finger tips there are still many questions that confound us. This Sunday we will explore some of these questions. We will also discuss the importance of asking questions for which we may never be able to discover the answers. Please join us.

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship meets every Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM at the Twin Falls Senior Center, 530 Shoshone Street West in Twin Falls. Newcomers are always welcome. Childcare is available. We are handicapped accessible. Please Park in the front of the building. For information, please contact Ken Whiting at 734-9161.

Sunday, July 13, 2014: “Emotional Freedom Technique”

Presenter: Julie Merrick

Host: Dale Bostock

Emotional Freedom Technique is a type of meridian tapping which combines principles of acupressure and psychology. Simple and effective, the process can (among other things) help to relieve pain, heal trauma, clear phobias, and release limiting beliefs. By stimulating the body’s meridian points while activating an emotional state, memory or belief, we are able to diffuse our body’s habitual response and become open to new ways of processing our life experience.

Join us for a discussion of what EFT is, why it works and how to do it!

Reflection question: “How in touch are you with the messages of your body?

Sunday, May 18, 2014: “Myth in Human History”

Host: Ray Cross

This week’s program will be another from the Great Courses company.

The presenter is Professor Grant L. Voth. He is professor Emeritus in English and Interdisciplinary Studies at Monterrey Peninsula College and an expert in world literature.

The title of the our lecture this Sunday is: “Mesopotamian and Hebrew Flood Myths”.

In this program, Dr. Voth compares Very early Flood myths with the stories in Genesis. These are stories that those of us from Christian backgrounds have heard all our lives and perhaps even taken as truth.

Myths explain who we are and why the world is the way it is; all before the advent of modern science. Do we modern people still have our myths? Some would say the Big Bang Theory is our Creation Myth. What do you think?

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship meets every Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM at the Twin Falls Senior Center, 530 Shoshone Street West in Twin Falls.

Newcomers are always welcome. Child care is available. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the front of the building.
