Sunday, March 29, 2015:  “Unitarianism as Part of the Transcendentalist Movement”

Host/Presenter: Ray Cross

Our service, Sunday, March 29th, will be a video featuring early Unitarianism as part of the transcendentalist movement. Our presenter by way of video will be Dr. Ashton Nichols, professor of English Language and Literature at Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

This program is will show the growth of early Unitarianism in America as seen through the words and thoughts of its leading minister, a transcendentalist minister.  William Ellery Channing (1780 – 1842) was the foremost Unitarian preacher in the United States in the early nineteenth century. He was one of Unitarianism’s leading theologians. Channing was known for his articulate and impassioned sermons and public speeches and as a prominent thinker in the liberal theology of his day.

This is where the core of modern Unitarian-Universalism all began.

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, 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 front of the building. Child care is available.

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship will meet this Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM at the Twin Falls Senior Center, 530 Shoshone Street West in Twin Falls.

This will be our final service at the Twin Falls Senior Center. Beginning Sunday, April 5, 2015, we will meet at the Vendor Blender & Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls also beginning at 10:30 AM.
