On Sunday, Feb. 5, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Standing on the Side of Love,” presented by Julie Loar.
She explains that, “This is a public advocacy campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Association, which seeks to harness love’s power to stop oppression. Through community activism, social networking, and media outreach, people across the nation are equipped to counter fear and make love a reality in the world.”
She adds, “No one should be dehumanized through acts of exclusion, oppression, or violence because of their identities. In public debates over immigration, LGBT rights and more, religious people stand on the side of love and call for respect, inclusion, and compassion.”
Loar, a local author who recently has received a national book award, is also on the board of directors of the Archuleta County Education Center and is program coordinator for the Pagosah UU Fellowship.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall and child care will be provided. 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.
