On Sunday, Feb. 20, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Building Beloved Community,” presented by De Anna Hoyle, director of Religious Exploration for the PUUF.
She points out that poet Rainer Maria Rilke, in “Letters To a Young Poet,” tells his friend “ … to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves …”
But DeAnna asks “How do we love the question, when the question is ‘How do you deal with all the pain and suffering in the world?’” Returning from a conference in New Orleans on building beloved community, DeAnna is inspired to consider the question and give us hope, as Unitarian Universalists strive to answer the call to service.
Continuing their study of the world’s foremost religions, the children and young people will hear a traditional Taoist story, which will help them explore this very old religion from China. They will also take time to explore the Chinese martial art form called Tai Chi.
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.
