On Sunday, Dec. 5, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a sermon presented by the Reverend Barbara Coeyman, entitled “Growing in the Darkness.”
She points out that “We may often go through periods of sadness or frustration or loss. Such times of personal darkness might feel stronger at this time of year as we approach various holidays as well as the winter solstice. The good news is that the dark need not be debilitating. The dark—of the calendar, or of our souls—might become a source of positive personal transformation.”
Rev. Coeyman serves as consulting minister for Columbine UU Church in Littleton, CO. She received a Master of Divinity degree from Austin Presbyterian Seminary in 2001. Prior to that she was tenured professor of music history at West Virginia University. Early music is her area of specialty and she continues to perform today as a player of the viola da gamba.. She is an avid folk dancer and plays in Denver’s “mega-band” for contradances.
For the last few months the children and young people have been learning about the major religions of the world. In December they will be studying Judaism, and this Sunday they will also learn how to play the dreidel game.
The Children’s Religious Exploration program runs concurrent with the service and is for ages 3 and up. For questions regarding this program, contact De Anna Hoyle, 264-7224.
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.
