Sunday, October 11, 2015: “The Art of Listening”

Host: Ray Cross

Presenter: Matthew Sabin
(Guest Speaker)

Matthew Sabin, a speaker from the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, will discuss a book he read in college titled “The Shockwave Rider.”

Our service this Sunday will allow people to anonymously talk with other people who only listen. There is nothing, nothing in the world that can take the place of one person intentionally listening or speaking to another. The act of consciously attending to another person — when one once discovers the art of listening and its significance this can become the center of gravity and the work of love.

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.

Please join us Sunday at 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. Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Child care is available. Please park in the rear of the building and use the entrance on the west side of the building.
