Sunday, May 24, 2015: “The Interdependent Web of All Existence”

Host/Presenter: Don Morishita

Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven principles by which we try to live our lives. The seventh principle is to have respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

In the big picture of life, this seems to be a reasonable and attainable goal to strive for. However, this seventh principle is arguably one of the most difficult principles because the interpretation of this principle varies among humans.

What one person sees as a respect of the interdependent web, another may see as environmental plunder or a pillage of nature. It certainly is a source for many UU discussions and one that will be addressed Sunday.

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 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, May 3, 2015: “Laugh, I Thought I’d Die”

Host: Ryan Terry

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

Is there any connection between laughing and spirituality? Is it all right to tell jokes in church, even in sermons? Does God like it when the sound of laughter flows out of our worship services, or does Holy Mystery prefer that we are sober and serious about our religious practice?

Rev. Greene comes out squarely in favor of making joyful noise in church. She will reflect on the seemingly-contradictory truth that some of life’s most deeply serious and spiritual times bring out laughter, even in the midst of our tears. She will also manage to slip in some worshipful jokes!

Cynthia Hindes, a member of the Wiccan Faith will be our guest this Sunday.Cynthia will speak about “fellowship.”

She will ask the questions:

“Who or what are our fellows and is fellowship a necessary basis for friendship?
According to Webster “fellowship is a friendly relationship among people, the relationship of people who share interests or feelings, a group of people who have similar interests,” and “friendship is the state of being friends: the relationship between friends, a friendly feeling or attitude: kindness or help given someone.”

Cynthia will explore the differences (if any) of these two definitions.
