May 19, 2019: “Always the Beautiful Answer,” Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene


Presenter: Rev. Elizbeth Greene

Poet E.E. Cummings once said, “Always the beautiful answer, that asks a more beautiful question.” In some ways, this statement is at the heart of Unitarian Universalism, which believes that truth is constantly unfolding, in a world we will never totally understand—but before which we can stand in reverence and faith, called to our best selves.

In this, her last sermon to the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Rev. Greene will reflect upon the answers and questions that arise in religious homes.

May 5: “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway”

Presenter: Ryan Terry

Why do we get so anxious? Sunday’s sermon we will explore the concept of fear and anxiety. The good and the bad. Sometimes we just get nervous about getting nervous. We can work ourselves into a frenzy trying to figure out why we are getting nervous.

Perhaps it is time to break the cycle and just accept that a certain level of anxiety is to be expected. We must allow ourselves to feel the fear and then do it anyway.

April 14: “Maybe You Can Catch Me on My Cell Phone”

Presenter
Rev. Elizabeth Greene

What keeps us so busy in this modern world?

Religious traditions of all kinds encourage slowing down, noticing what is going on around us, simply being still. But a lot of us have a kind of non-stop life, whether it is work-related, volunteering all over the place, or keeping up with a home and kids.
How much “down time” does it take to be truly human, in touch with each other and larger truths?
