April 7, 2019: “Beyond the ‘Why?”

Presented by: Rev. Kenneth Watts
(Member Boise Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, or “BUUF”)

What benefits are to be gained by being part of an organization that ties itself to the 2000th year of Christian tradition and our own Unitarian Universalist Association that was born out of 19th century liberal understandings? And most importantly, “Why not just abandon all religious groups and stay home or go golfing?”

Our speaker this Sunday is Kenneth Watts, an ordained minister in a liberal Christian tradition. Rev. Watts has been working as a hospital Chaplain for the past twenty-plus years. Originally from the mid-west (Illinois and Ohio), he moved to Boise in 2012 to be a Staff Chaplain at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. In Ohio he was a member of the North Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Lewis Center, Ohio (about 30 miles north of Columbus). Here in Idaho he is a member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

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 our spiritual journeys. As UUs we 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 or on the street in front or the side of the building. Child care is available.

Join us at 10:30 AM at our new location: 160 9th Avenue East in Twin Falls.
