August 4: “Go and Do Likewise”

Presenter: Mary McGinnis

Our speaker this Sunday is Mary McGinnis, a Christian member of our Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship. Mary’s topic, “Go and Do Likewise,” explores where faith and the sciences intersect to answer the question: “Am I my brother’s [humankind’s] keeper?”

Mary’s message draws from the story of The Good Samaritan in the Bible, and themes of “intersectionality” and “ecotheology” from the UUA book, Justice on Earth, to ensure and promote our precious first Principle “The inherent worth and dignity of every person” on Earth.

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 Unitarian-Universalists, 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 working on becoming handicapped-accessible but are not fully there yet.
