Dear Friends of MVUUF,

You are invited to our upcoming transgender panel event to be held this Wednesday, November 20th: A Panel of Local Transgender People Sharing Their Stories
Facilitated by Brandon Connolly

The goal of the evening is education and acceptance. This will be a reflective evening with adult content; therefore, child care will not be provided. Please plan accordingly.
Thanks and we hope you can attend to hear stories and learn from local transgender folks.

Warmly,

NEW: Join Soul Matters Group BUUF+MVUUF starting October 22, 7 p.m.

Hello MVUUF Members and Friends:

As a part of our new partnership with Boise UU Fellowship, intern Mary Beth Bolin is launching a Soul Matters Small Group on the 4th Tuesday of each month for both MVUUF and BUUF friends, where all participants will join online via the “Zoom” online meeting platform. “Zoom” is easy to download and run either on a computer or a phone. Get your device ready and sign up for a free account in advance here.

This is an exciting opportunity to connect more deeply with each other and with the monthly themes, all from the comfort of our own homes! Our first meeting will be Tuesday October 22 at 7 pm, discussing the theme of “Belonging.” If you would like to participate, please email Mary Beth at intern@boiseuu.org.

Thank you so much!

Blessings,
Mary Beth

April 15- 16: “All Things Become New” & Saturday Workshop

Spring is a season of beginnings, of renewal and transformation. It reminds us that we exist in an infinite field of potential and possibility.

When we tap into the source of life, a new heart and spirit open to us, shaking loose what is stagnant and allowing a rebirth of wonder.

There will be a MVUUF Workshop, on Saturday, April 15, 9:30 to noon, at the Vendor Blender:

Members and Friends, please join a workshop, facilitated by Rev. Tandi Rogers (our Western Region Congregational Life Staff member), to help us decide our fellowship’s future direction!

We will explore questions, such as, “Who are we called to be, and who do we serve?” And “How do we want to be in our community”? If you would like to see MVUUF be more active and engaged in our community, let us discuss your ideas. We will take a look at our current mission statement to see if it applies to us today, as it did in 1994, when it was first developed by our founders. We may brainstorm slogans that could describe us. Another UU fellowship has the slogan “Rooted in Love, Reaching for Justice”.

The workshop will be multi-generational, and kids are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.  If you have questions, please ask any board member.  Thanks!

from Your MVUUF Board,
Dale Bostock, Rick Dykes, Eleanor Miller (Secretary), Kyi Kyi Whiting (Treasurer), & Michelle Richman (President)

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.

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. Parking is available in the parking lot to the north side of the building.
