Sunday, August 30, 2015: Why Are We Infatuated with Zombies?

This Sunday, our service will be drawn from a sermon by Rev. Thom Belote, minister of the Community Church of Chapel Hill, Unitarian Universalist, Chapel Hill, NC. We will explore troubling aspects of American life using America’s current interest in zombies.

Why are we as a people are so zombie crazy? Everywhere we look we see zombies. Zombies appear in movies, in books, in comic books, and on TV and of course they will be in our streets this Halloween asking for candy.

We will reflect on what this might mean in light of the direction our society is going. Why are zombies so popular? What do they represent to us? Are we being conditioned to respond in a desired way by unseen forces in our society?

Are we all turning into zombies?

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 the rear of the building. Child care is available.

Please join us Sunday at our new location located in the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls at 10:30 AM. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West.
