Welcome

The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MVUUF) is affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association of North America and is an ethical and liberal religious community dedicated to promoting the ongoing search for truth and to affirming the inherent worth of the individual.

Our Fellowship Mission is to help each person live, laugh, love and seek the truth; to be a place of celebration, comfort, love, and learning for all ages; to serve our community in the spirit of justice and democracy; and to respect all religious paths.

Services begin at every Sunday at 10:30 am, with a social hour afterwords. Some services are presented by our part-time minister, Elizabeth Greene, on the first Sunday of every month. Our fellowship meets at 160 9th Avenue East in Twin Falls, ID.

March 10: “Eostre, the Origins of the Bunny and Egg and the Beginning of Summer”

Presenter: Guy Hopkins
Easter Ostara_by_Johannes_Gehrts“It is a day of balance, as the day and night hours are approximately the same length. A season that brings fertility and growth, marking our passage into the spring season and into summer. We begin to notice the hours of light getting longer, and the heat of the sun is warmer.

Trees are waking, animals are stirring in their dens and the quickening of the Earth herself, is felt strongly. All things are wanting to take stride, leap about and play. So, we look at Eostre or Ostara to find the origins of the bunny and egg and the beginning of summer.”

 

Unitarian-Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on our spiritual journeys.

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.

March 3: Our Spiritual Journeys

Presenters
Digger Zout, Ray Cross, Guy Hopkins, Lisa Knecht

Spiritual journeys for Unitarian-Universalists follow diverse and interesting paths. Some join Unitarian-Universalist fellowships after leaving a religion they grew up in. For others, Unitarian-Universalism is the first organized religion in which they have found a home. For all UUs, our spiritual journeys are an important part of who we are. Join us Sunday as four members of our UU fellowship share their spiritual journeys.

February 17: Stages of Faith

Presenter: Jen Blair

Many people attending Unitarian-Universalist fellowships were raised in other religions, so much so that Unitarian-Universalism is often referred to as a sanctuary for religious refugees.  Let’s explore the natural stages of faith development into adulthood and discuss what potential benefits and drawbacks can come from gathering together with others who are in a variety of similar yet different phases of faith and transitional faith stages.

February 10: “The Triumph of Trust Over Experience”

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

What does it mean when we say we trust someone or something? What does it mean when we say we trust in God, or in the Universe? Does it mean we think things will always go our way? What happens in our hearts and souls when things do not go our way, especially in matters of deep import? Rev. Greene will reflect on these questions, and on how trust relates to faith and hope.
