April 26: “Owning our Actions, With or Without a Deity” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek, Pocatello UU Fellowship

Our visiting minister from Pocatello, Rev. Jenny Peek, explores the evolution of ethnocentric to anthropocentric theology. Through the story of American Humanism’s origins in John H. Dietrich and with consideration of Unitarian-Universalism as it is today, how is Humanism serving our better natures (or not)?

We will meet using the Zoom online platform, and the meeting begins at 10:30 AM.  For general questions about how to use Zoom, please click here.

April 19: “Somewhere Between” … A 50 Year Journey (ONLINE Service)

Host: Don Morishita
Presenter: Gwen Reid (Member Boise  UU Fellowship)

“To make a record: Take one miracle and add two dreams”. Thus begins the cover note from the first record album, “Somewhere Between, by Rosalie Sorrels” under Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s record label.

The miracle makers and dreamers among the 50 members of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in the late 1960s wanted to give voice to their faith-inspired response to the times in which they were living: The war in Vietnam was in full swing with nearly 500,000 American troops deployed, civil disturbances throughout the U.S. evidenced that we had still not moved beyond the original sin of slavery, and poverty and unemployment, especially for minorities, was eroding our hope for better future.
Fifty years hence, what lessons can we, as a faith community, glean from these carefully curated songs. What can this “opening” of a time capsule from 50 years ago in Boise Unitrian-Universalist Fellowship’s history tell us about the present or the possibilities for our future?

April 5: “To Be Idle and Blessed” (ONLINE 10:30 AM MST)

Presenter: Intern Minister Mary Beth Bolin

In Mary Oliver’s poem, “The Summer Day,” she says, “I don’t know exactly what a prayer is. / I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down / into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, / how to be idle and blessed … ”

This week we will wonder together “how to be idle and blessed,” exploring spiritual practice and the grace that comes from giving up, even momentarily, our identity as doers and producers of things, in order to simply experience being alive.

Our online service this Sunday, April 5th, at 10:30 AM Mountain Time, intern minister Mary Beth Bolin will lead worship for Magic Valley UU Fellowship on Zoom at the following link:
