UU Sunday topic: ‘Giving Thanks’

On Sunday, Nov. 15, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship topic will be “Giving Thanks.”

 Former Pagosah UU Fellowship president Ilene Haykus will explore the meaning of Thanksgiving: both the upcoming holiday and the spiritual practice of remembering to feel grateful for what we have. She points out that “As many suffer during these difficult economic times, it has become even more imperative to explore ways in which letting go of attachment to our desires can restore balance to our hearts and minds and allow us to find harmony in our lives.” 

Haykus, a practicing psychologist and counselor, has been a long-time member of the Pagosa UU Fellowship, and a popular speaker at many Southwest UU churches and fellowships.  After several years of living in Sedona, she and her husband, Peter, have moved back to Pagosa Springs.

 The circle worship for the children and youth will focus on how we encourage one another.  Planning for the multigenerational service next week, we will explore the “offerings” we might want to share in gratitude for our faith community.

Also, during this morning’s program, a brief ceremony will formally welcome new members into the Fellowship.

 The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, 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.
