Reverend will discuss the concept of grace

Special to The PREVIEW

On March 2, a DVD will be used to discuss the concept of grace delivered by Reverend Angela Herrera, an associate minister at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Albuquerque.

Herrera will use life situational events to demonstrate the concept that, “Grace is what happens when we experience what is sacred, meaningful and beautiful.”

Reverend Herrera explains that, “Grace is an undeserved gift, we are not entitled to it, we can not earn it, and we are not so bad or lost or miserable as to be disqualified from receiving it.”

Frederick Buechner, writer, theologian and Presbyterian minister, calls grace, “The muffled presence of the holy.” This, too, will be discussed by Angela.

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship sponsors a children’s spiritual educational program and encourages families with children to join us for our Sunday service. Our children’s religious programs teach our 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 also 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.
