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.

January 13: “On Fire With Possibility” (Rev. Elizabeth Greene)

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship is in its first owned-by-us home! On this second Sunday in our building, we will joyfully celebrate the great possibilities that now open to us, expected and undoubtedly unexpected.  Rev. Greene will reflect on the hopes and fears and happiness that go into taking big new steps. We will also celebrate with a “Fire Communion”, where we will write our dearest thoughts about possibility, then light them, to send them forth.

January 6: “Living as a Spiritual Hypocrite” (REMINDER: New Meeting Place Address)

REMINDER:

We will now meet at our new location:

160 9th Avenue East in Twin Falls. See you there!

(Still at 10:30 AM)

Presenter: Michael Becerra

We are all at our very best when our thoughts and actions are fully aligned with our spiritual beliefs. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Very few of us can consistently walk this narrow path, even by our own definition. Some diversions are small, some are very large — and we must have a means to reconcile this within ourselves.

This week Michael Becerra will discuss his experience “Living as a Spiritual Hypocrite” and the challenges he chooses to take on or ignore as he strives to be fully authentic in his spirituality.

December 16: “Dark Mystery” – Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene

“Dark Mystery,” a sermon by Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene

Winter Solstice is almost upon us, that day when we have less light and more dark than any other day of the year. Also, days are pretty short all around this period, letting us reflect upon the mysteries of light and dark in our lives, how such things affect our spirits and our spiritual outlooks.

When we are in darkness, we also live in the hope of lighter days, of the Christ Child and stars and angels, of miraculous oil-burning lamps of an ancient people. In the mystery that dark can bring, we can grow our hearts in love.

Please Note, There will be a potluck meal following the service.Please join us. All in attendance, including visitors, are welcome!

Sunday, December 2: “Ingredients for transformation: Reflections and insights from stories, poems and science”

Presenter: Collete Hoglund

This Sunday, we will explore what it means to change and transform, what prompts us to begin and stay on the journey of transformation and what are some of the key ingredients facilitating change.

Illustrations from the book/movie “Wonder” poetry by Mary Oliver and Anais Nin and the neuroscience of Dr. Joe Dispenza will be used to assist in this exploration of transformation. How transformation applies to us all personally and to our spiritual community will also be addressed.

Please remember our non-perishable food collection for the Idaho Food Pantry continues all this month.
