Sunday, August 23, 2015: “Cultivating Gratitude”

Host/Presenter: Kacee O’Conner

Based on research from The Greater Good Science Center we will explore gratitude. We will discover as we may already know gratitude does not always come naturally.

Negatives in our lives: disappointments, resentments, and fears sometimes occupy more of our attention than the positives.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available.

Please join us Sunday at our new location located in the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls at 10:30 AM. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West.

Sunday, August 16, 2015: “Building Our Own Theology: Part 3”

Host/Presenter: Chad Minteer

Our Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship has been exploring aspects of what a free and responsible search for truth means in our individual lives as we reflect on our own experience of building our own theology. In keeping with our year’s theme of “Telling Our Stories” everyone is invited to come and share a favorite poem (or excerpt from one) that has special meaning.

After opening comments, we will hear from members of our congregation to learn of their favorite poems that have spiritual meaning to them.

Sunday, August 9, 2015: “Building Our Own Theology: Part 2”

Host/Presenter: Don Morishita

Our spiritual paths can take many turns throughout our lives. As Unitarian Universalists we have talked about the importance of building our own theology to meet our spiritual needs. Sunday, we will hear the story from four people and their journeys as they have each built their own theologies.

Please join us this Sunday to learn more about these four individuals’ spiritual paths.

Sunday, August 2, 2015: “Building Our Own Theology”

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

The Unitarian Universalist Association has a curriculum called “Building Your Own Theology.” We notice that, in our faith tradition, we “build” our own belief systems, rather than accepting beliefs that others think we should have. This of course puts a great responsibility on the individual and the community to form responsible systems that honor Mystery, uphold justice, respect each other, value community and lead us to be better people on the journey.

This week, Rev. Elizabeth Greene will reflect on how we build our belief and value systems, what aids we have within ourselves and with a little help from our friends. Please join us this Sunday to learn more.

Sunday, July 19, 2015: “Religious Humanism”

Host/Presenter: Ray Cross

The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will discuss the different approaches to the Humanist view of life and how each relates to liberal religion. What is Religious Humanism? Is this the very best name for one of the branches of humanism?

Is it possible to be religious and a Humanist at the same time? Are all Humanists Atheists or Agnostics or are they all radical religion haters?

Can we build a more humane society through “an ethics based on human and other natural values in a spirit of reason and free inquiry”? We may be surprised at how closely Humanism relates to Unitarian Universalism and perhaps our own personal beliefs.

Please join us this Sunday to learn more about Humanism.

Sunday, July 12, 2015: “A Perfectly Imperfect Story”

Host: Karen Fothergill

Presenter: Julie Merrick

It has been said that in the end, we are all stories. But how do we tell our stories and how do we interpret the stories of those around us?

We are each dynamic and diverse and yet similar in so many ways. The Buddha once said that “to understand everything is to forgive everything.”

Perhaps the greatest value in sharing our stories is that doing so helps us to feel both compassion and appreciation for all stories, including our own.
