Sunday, November 8, 2015: “Hope As the Light Goes Dim”

Host: Don Morishita

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

NOTE: This Sunday’s Charitable Collection To Benefit Valley House Homeless Shelter

Fall is often a time when we have mixed feelings. It is good, as we feel the coolness, see the gorgeous trees, celebrate Halloween and All Souls—the turn of the seasons moves us and makes us feel good. At the same time, it is so clearly a time when the year is heading into its annual “death,” to the time when there is darkness and cold, and we can feel loss more sharply. How do we fully experience this important season—and the winter that will be upon us soon—without either pretending there is no sadness, or falling into too much sadness? What brings us hope that warmth and light will return?

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.
