Sunday, October 2, 2016: “How to Pray Always Without Always Praying”


Rev. Elizabeth Greene

Presented by: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

“Prayer” is a very common religious subject and practice, but can sometimes be interpreted in narrow ways that do not do justice to our spiritual lives.

Do we always have to pray TO something or someone? Does prayer usually have a creed or set of beliefs behind it? If so, is that necessary? Rev. Greene will reflect on ways to broaden our idea of prayer, perhaps expanding it into something that can enlarge and enrich anyone, regardless of spiritual beliefs and values.

This service will include a blessing for children. Parents will share the meaning or background of their child’s (children’s) name(s) and the congregation will say words of support as a congregational village. Each child will receive a rose.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. 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 usually available. Please park in the rear of the building and use the entrance on the west side of the building.
