Sunday, March 15, 2015: “Faith”

Host: Ryan Terry
Presenter: Elton Hall (Guest Speaker from Boise UUF)

Here is the text from this service:  20150315 Faith-What Is It

For many people, faith is belief in a set of doctrines, but faith has always been much more than that. We will discuss how faith arises from experience–and how faith varies for each individual–and how it is justified by reason. Faith will be linked to confidence in one’s own experience and why one’s faith cannot be imposed on others. Finally, faith will divorced from creeds and wedded to the first and seventh principle of Unitarian Universalism which are: 1) The inherent worth and dignity of every person and 7) Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equity, 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 front of the building.
