On Sunday, Jan. 30, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service will explore “The Four Boundless Attitudes” through a presentation by Debra Quayle Travis, program manager at Tara Mandala Retreat Center. She explains that these Buddhist attitudes — equanimity, loving kindness, compassion, and sympathetic joy — form a topic which relates directly to the second UU principle: “Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.”
Debra Travis has been on the Buddhist path since 1982. She has traveled the world studying and practicing in the Theravadan Buddhist tradition, has taught dharma and meditation to individuals and groups in the United States and elsewhere in the world, and has been a presenter at numerous conferences and workshops.
Also, during the months of January, February and March, Debra will continue leading Saturday morning meditations, which are offered to everyone in the wider Pagosa community. The sessions are from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the UU Fellowship Hall. A love offering is requested.
The Children’s Religious Exploration began this month’s study of Christianity with Jesus’ birth and will end with a story about Jesus’ death and resurrection, which is part of the Easter celebration in the Christian faith. This story will lead to an exploration of what Christians believe about salvation. Games and stories will serve as the tools for exploring.
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.
