On Sunday, August 14, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a presentation by former PUUF president Joan Ward, entitled “The Definition of Caring.”
She asks, “What does it mean to care about someone? Does to care mean to help, to give advice, to suggest solutions to their problems? Or, as Henry Nouwen said, ‘Is it the friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not-knowing, not-curing, not-healing, and face with us the reality of our powerlessness? That is the friend who cares’.”
Ward, who has a Ph. D. in nutrition, is very active in the community, participating in a leadership capacity with Loaves and Fishes and the Humane Society, and at the Chimney Rock Archeological Area.
Child care, which has been discontinued during the month of August, will resume in September.
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.
Sunday, Aug. 21, will be the annual PUUF picnic, and there will be no service at the Fellowship Hall. The picnic, for the whole family, will be held in Town Park, near the gazebo.
