June 20: A Playful Sunday

Play is the worship theme for the month of June for Unitarian Universalists. Author Diane Ackerman writes “In rare moments of deep play, we can lay aside our sense of self, shed time’s continuum, ignore pain, and sit quietly in the absolute present, watching the world’s ordinary miracles. No mind or heart hobbles. No analyzing or explaining. No questing for logic. No promises. No goals. No relationships. No worry. One is completely open to whatever drama may unfold.”

Join us this Sunday at our physical location 160 9th Avenue East in Twin Falls or online for a service of “play.” Please bring one of your favorite jokes to share. To join online email MVUUF83301@yahoo.com for the Zoom link.

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.        

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. 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.

May 30 Flower Ceremony Service

Each year, Unitarian Universalist Churches across the country celebrate the coming of summer with a flower ceremony. Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the Flower Ceremony was introduced to the United States by Rev. Maya Capek, Norbert’s widow. Also sometimes referred to as Flower Communion or Flower Festival, it is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. For this ceremony, everyone is asked to bring a flower if they can.

Each person places a flower in a large vase. The congregation blesses the flowers, and they’re redistributed. Each person takes home a different flower than the one they brought. If possible, please bring a flower or flowers that can be combined with all of the others in a large vase during the service.

The service will be in person starting at 10:30 am at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, located at 160 9th Ave. East, Twin Falls, Idaho

MVUUF is now meeting in person beginning May 23rd.

Idaho is now in Stage 4 of our pandemic recovery and as the country slowly recovers from the recent pandemic, we, the leadership team at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, are pleased to announce that we will soon be meeting in person regularly. This exciting news comes as we close out the 2020-2021 fiscal year and prepare for the 2021-2022 year where we hope to reestablish the sense of community we were so recently forced to give up.

Please join us at our regular meeting place, 160 9th Avenue East in Twin Falls. Our service begins at 10:30 AM.

May 23: “Patience: More of a Clue than a Virtue”

What if developing patience for difficult people and situations in our lives isn’t the virtue it’s cracked up to be? Patience has its place in building beloved community. Join us this Sunday for our worship service when visiting minister, Rev. Jenny Peek, shares her reflection on patience as a clue, more than a virtue.

Reminder: We are now meeting in person. Please join our service at our normal meeting place: 160 9th Avenue East, in Twin Falls.

May 16: “All of Us Have Stories”

Presenter: Terry Ford

All of us have stories we tell ourselves about who we are. Sometimes those stories are ones that have been imposed on us, by parents, friends, or just by circumstances. Sometimes they are just a collection of things we have come to believe about ourselves. Those stories may not reflect what we would like to be, and they may not be even true in the eyes of others. Oftentimes of course they are at least partially true, but that doesn’t make them any less irksome to live with, or to try to live up to. Sometimes we are not even aware that they are only stories, and that we have the power to change them. Our small group discussions this coming Sunday will offer members the opportunity to share what their individual stories are, and to reflect on how they might change them if they find them chafing like an ill-fitted shoe.

Please join us this Sunday at 10:30 MST. Visitors to our online service are always welcome.

Presenter: Rev. Mary Beth Bolin

April 11: “I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now.”


Presenter: Mary Beth Basinger

This month as we reflect on what it means to be a People of “Becoming,” Mary Beth Basinger will share her thoughts on becoming younger. Inspired by the Bob Dylan song “My Back Pages,” she will reflect on how we can shed concepts like good, bad, smart, right, or successful, and return to a place where it is enough to just be.

April 4: “Easter” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Monica Dobbins

In any of a million moments in our lives, we approach a tomb with a heavy stone rolled in front, filled with grief for the everyday losses of life. Ancient stories, even stories we thought we no longer needed, continue to have resonance for us today. What do the stories of Passover and Easter have to say to us, now, today?
