Sunday, January 1, 2017: “Starting Over?”

Presented by: Chad Minteer

With the New Year, we have an opportunity to reflect, to renew commitments, and to consider the year ahead. Sometimes this can be daunting, and sometimes we can set unrealistic expectations for ourselves. Do we really have to start over? Or can we start from right where we are?

Join us as we consider helpful perspectives for beginning the new year in hope, in love, in community.

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. Please park in the rear of the building and use the entrance on the west side of the building.

Sunday, January 10, 2016: The Promise and Possibility of a New Year”

Host: Ray Cross

Presenter: Julie Merrick

What is it about the beginning of a new year that causes people to examine their lives and set resolutions for change? A new year feels like a gift, like another chance, like an opportunity to be taken. Yet all too soon it seems that the potential which filled us with excitement fades and we find ourselves back in patterns we hoped to let go of. Is this outcome inevitable or could we find a way to hold on to the promise and possibility of a New Year?

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. 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.
