UU Fellowship reexamines the Sixth Source

By Jean Strahlendorf
Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday Nov. 17, the UU Fellowship continues to examine, via DVD, the UU Sixth Source that emphasizes “Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.”

Unitarian Universalists generally believe that all things on the earth are connected and we have respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

In this sermon, Rev. Christine Robinson explains that, “the Unitarians and the Universalists rejected the use of creeds that serve to insure theological conformity and rather embraced theological pluralism in their churches. We, the inheritors of this experiment, therefore have options in our theological understanding, and the responsibility to investigate those options and come to our own conclusions about the theology that makes the most sense to us.”

Concerning our Sixth Source, Rev. Robinson will facilitate our understanding of how Earth-centered and nature spirituality are primary resources for our faith.

Reverend Robinson is the senior minister of the First Unitarian Church of Albuquerque, N.M.

The Fellowship has a children’s spiritual educational program and encourages families with children to attend the Sunday service. The children’s religious programs teach the Unitarian Universalist heritage, ethical living, moral precepts to love your neighbor, work for a better world, and to search for truth with an open mind. Arts and crafts projects are utilized to illustrate these principles.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
