May 19, 2019: “Always the Beautiful Answer,” Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene


Presenter: Rev. Elizbeth Greene

Poet E.E. Cummings once said, “Always the beautiful answer, that asks a more beautiful question.” In some ways, this statement is at the heart of Unitarian Universalism, which believes that truth is constantly unfolding, in a world we will never totally understand—but before which we can stand in reverence and faith, called to our best selves.

In this, her last sermon to the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Rev. Greene will reflect upon the answers and questions that arise in religious homes.

Sunday, October 9, 2016: “A Quest for the Living God – Finding God beyond Theism”

Presented by: Chad Minteer

Beyond the torrent of words about God, beyond creedal formulations, beyond rejection of belief, beyond simplistic reductions to binary oppositions of theism-atheism or believer-unbeliever, what is there that can still be called God? How are these understandings infusing us with new inspiration, calling us to be our best selves, and getting us in touch with mystery and wonder?

Sunday, July 31, 2016: “A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning ”

Presenter: Chad Minteer

One of Unitarian-Universalist guiding principles that we affirm is a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” What is this freedom, and why is it important?

“As responsible religious seekers, we recognize that we are privileged to be free, to have resources to pursue life beyond mere survival, to continually search for truth and meaning, to exist beyond bonds of dogma and oppression, and to wrestle freely with truth and meaning as they evolve.

“This privilege calls us not to be isolated and self-centered, believing that our single perspective trumps all others, but rather to be humble, to be open to the great mysteries of truth and meaning that life offers. And those mysteries may speak to us through our own intuition and experience—but also through tradition, community, conflict, nature, and relationships.

“As a faith tradition, Unitarian Universalism makes sacred the right and responsibility to engage in this free and responsible quest as an act of religious devotion. Institutionally, we have left open the questions of what truth and meaning are, acknowledging that mindful people will, in every age, discover new insights.”
