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.

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?

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. As UUs we 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 or on the street in front or the side of the building. Child care is available.

April 7, 2019: “Beyond the ‘Why?”

Presented by: Rev. Kenneth Watts
(Member Boise Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, or “BUUF”)

What benefits are to be gained by being part of an organization that ties itself to the 2000th year of Christian tradition and our own Unitarian Universalist Association that was born out of 19th century liberal understandings? And most importantly, “Why not just abandon all religious groups and stay home or go golfing?”

Our speaker this Sunday 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. In Ohio he was a member of the North Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Lewis Center, Ohio (about 30 miles north of Columbus). Here in Idaho he is a member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

March 31: LIVING WHOLEHEARTED: Patricia Heeb (Boise UUF)

Presenter: Patricia Heeb
(Member Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship)

Synonyms for “wholehearted” are many: ardent, avid, eager, enthused, fervent, gung-ho, impassioned, zealous, lively, earnest, unrestrained… and on and on. But is living with a whole heart more than living in the hearty manner these words imply?

Visit us this Sunday to hear Patricia Heeb, member of the Boise Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, deliver her message to us.

March 24: Thurman’s Glad Surprise (Rev. Jenny Peek)

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek

Pastor-Jenny_cJoin us this Sunday as we welcome Spring with Rev. Jenny Peek, our visiting Unitarian-Universalist minister, from the Pocatello Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship.

Theologian Howard Thurman’s view of ‘growing edges’ is much more than the gentle euphemism for shortcomings, as it is used by many today.  How do we welcome change, of season or spirit?Thurman_H

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.”

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.
