Grand Canyon program at UU Fellowship

On Sunday, March 1, Ed Funk, president of the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, will present a special program on the Grand Canyon.  

He states that “The Grand Canyon offers a unique and experiential look into much of the geology and ecology of the earth’s shell.   The wonders of this natural laboratory provide more than a walk through geological time, however.  In addition, its visitors can find a refuge, an incomparable space in which they can seek a sanity and a perspective that is often difficult to discover in a hurried, crowded modern lifestyle.”

Ed Funk and a group of friends have, between them, escaped to the Grand Canyon roughly 50 times.  From those journeys Ed has assembled photographic images made by his impassioned backcountry companions to demonstrate not only their art, but the geology, the majesty, the solitude, and the renewing spirit of one of our great  American landscapes. 

John Graves will provide spontaneous keyboard improvisations as background music to the projected photographs.

The children’s religious exploration (CRE) classes have been focusing on how religion works in everyday life. Most religions have the message of making the world a better place, and sharing with others is one way. Our theme this morning will be charity. We will practice our Seven Principles and talk about ways we can help in our own community.  Bring a non-perishable food item to add to our box for the food pantry.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbrier 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.
