On Sunday, Jan. 8, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Spirit Of Life,” presented by Julie Loar.
She points out that, “This is also the title of a hymn composed by Carolyn McDade, which is hugely popular in many UU congregations. No other song, no other prayer, no other piece of liturgy is so well known and loved in Unitarian Universalism.”
Julie continues, “In six short lines, ‘Spirit of Life’ touches so much that is central to the faith of Unitarian Universalists—compassion, justice, community, freedom, reverence for nature, and the mystery of life. It finds the common ground held by humanists and theists, pagans and Christians, Buddhists and Jews, gay and straight among us. “
The Sunday presentation will also introduce a monthly program from the “Tapestry Of Faith” curriculum which is based on the hymn. The year-long exploration will be facilitated by Julie Loar, program coordinator for the Pagosah UU Fellowship. Each month’s lesson will focus on a different aspect of the spiritual life.
This special service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn East on Greenbriar Drive off North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
