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.

July 16: “Freedom”

Presented by: Julie Merrick

Freedom is state of mind. It is an open door; it is wind rushing against canyon walls; it is birds hanging in flight. Freedom is to feel one’s soul dancing inside one’s body as the illusion of the time dissolves into a moment of infinity.
We find freedom by releasing the mental constructs which enslave us, by letting go of all that weighs us down, by being fully present in the now and by loving in a way that causes others to feel free.

July 2: “The Living God”

What do you think about when you hear the word God? Turn on? Turn off? No reaction? And how does our being human make the idea of a God seem to be a necessity?

Theologians have been at this issue for centuries…let’s see what we can do in 30 minutes!

June 25: “Showing Up and Staying Put”

 Presented by Guest Speaker Jen Blair

What does radical love look like for mothers of LGBTQIA children? When religion asks the impossible, what is the answer? How can faith, family, and LGBTQIA communities be celebrated and championed?

Justice and love lead some to leave beloved faith communities and find others where they can be their authentic selves. Others are led to stay and keep showing up on the side of love. No matter what path parents and families choose, there are difficult challenges that love calls them to meet. These challenges do not have to be met alone.

Join us as guest speaker Jen Blair talks about her experiences as an LDS mother and an active member of the Mama Dragons organization. Mama Dragons is an organization that exists to inspire and empower mothers of LGBTQIA children.

IMPORTANT Please Note: June 18 Service is off-site and will NOT BE at VENDOR BLENDER location

Topic: “Living Our Truth”

Presented by: Julie Merrick

PLEASE NOTE!  Our service this Sunday will be at the home of Michael Johnson and Monie Smith, 559 E 300 S, Jerome, Idaho 83338 beginning at 10:30 AM. No service will be held at the Vendor Blender location.

Joy and freedom come to us when we live what we most deeply feel to be true. A path of integrity, where we express and do what is true for us in all situations, is not always easy to follow. We may be fearful of disappointing others or being seen as different. We may be unclear as to what our truth is and how best to live it.

As we tune into our hearts and draw upon courage and kindness, we can embrace a life of honesty and live our truth.

Our service this Sunday will be at the home of Michael Johnson and Monie Smith, 559 E 300 S, Jerome, Idaho 83338 beginning at 10:30 AM.

For information or directions please call Michael Johnson at: 208-420-5567 or Monie at: 208-420-5568.

May 21: All Things Become New

Presented by Julie Merrick

Spring is a season of beginnings, of renewal and transformation. It reminds us that we exist in an infinite field of potential and possibility.

When we tap into the source of life, a new heart and spirit open to us, shaking loose what is stagnant and allowing a rebirth of wonder.
