April 14: “Maybe You Can Catch Me on My Cell Phone”

Presenter
Rev. Elizabeth Greene

What keeps us so busy in this modern world?

Religious traditions of all kinds encourage slowing down, noticing what is going on around us, simply being still. But a lot of us have a kind of non-stop life, whether it is work-related, volunteering all over the place, or keeping up with a home and kids.
How much “down time” does it take to be truly human, in touch with each other and larger truths?

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.

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.

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.

March 31: LIVING WHOLEHEARTED: Patricia Heeb (Boise UUF)

Presenter: Patricia Heeb
(Member Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship)

Synonyms for “wholehearted” are many: ardent, avid, eager, enthused, fervent, gung-ho, impassioned, zealous, lively, earnest, unrestrained… and on and on. But is living with a whole heart more than living in the hearty manner these words imply?

Visit us this Sunday to hear Patricia Heeb, member of the Boise Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, deliver her message to us.

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek

Pastor-Jenny_cJoin us this Sunday as we welcome Spring with Rev. Jenny Peek, our visiting Unitarian-Universalist minister, from the Pocatello Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship.

Theologian Howard Thurman’s view of ‘growing edges’ is much more than the gentle euphemism for shortcomings, as it is used by many today.  How do we welcome change, of season or spirit?Thurman_H
