July 8, 2018: “Spiritual Paths”

Presenter: Don Morishita

We each have our own spiritual path in our lives. For some, the path is quite straight and for others, the path may have some twists and turns.

Each religion has its own spiritual path; some longer than others. Each religion’s spiritual path is unique with many interesting events along the way. The same can be said of Unitarian Universalism. The spiritual path of Unitarianism began in the 1600s with the formation of the Unitarian Church in Romania.

Universalism was unofficially introduced years before that, but church hierarchy considered the beliefs of universalism as heresy. The Unitarian and Universalist religions combined in the United States in 1961. Join us this Sunday as we take a walk along the spiritual path of Unitarian Universalism from the 1600’s to present day.

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.

June 10: “Much Ado About…”

Guest Speaker: Kenneth Watts

For some individuals the unknown drives them to move back to something less anxiety producing and seemingly real. For others, not knowing causes an attitude of no longer asking questions. And, for still others, the unknown energizes and propels them to ask more questions and their doubts become the underlying force that drives their quest.

Our speaker for June 10 is Kenneth Watts, an ordained minister in a liberal Christian tradition. Rev. Watts has been working as a hospital Chaplain for the past twenty-plus years. Originally from the mid-west (Illinois and Ohio), he moved to Boise in 2012 to be a Staff Chaplain at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center.

Before moving to Idaho he was associated with the Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio and worked in the McConnell Heart Health Center teaching classes in the Mind-Body Stress Management program for cardiac and pulmonary patients.

Rev. Watts has four children who continue to amaze him with their skill and wisdom. They are scattered from Tokyo to Dubai to Texas, following their own dreams and creating their own unique lives and families. He has one grandchild who resides in Texas, and two cats that reside here in Idaho with him.

In Ohio he was a member of the North Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Here in Idaho he is a member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
