On Sunday, April 1, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “What does Holy Week mean to you?” It will be presented by Pam Kircher, M.D., a retired family practice and hospice doctor, who is also a past president of the Pagosah UU Steering Committee.
Kircher points out that, “We live in a culture where Holy Week is the most important religious time in the entire year. And yet, each event in Holy Week, from Palm Sunday to Maundy Thursday, from the Crucifixion to the Resurrection, may hold very different meanings for each of us, depending on our background and on our own contemplation. Through a discussion of various interpretations of these events, the presentation will encourage you to think deeply about how you see each of them and how they affect your life today.”
Several years ago Kircher wrote a book on her hospice experiences: “Love is the Link: A Hospice Doctor Shares her Experience of Near-Death and Dying.” In her retirement, she teaches Tai Chi as a pathway to mind, body, and spirit integration. She also offers hypnotherapy sessions as a way for people to get in touch more deeply with the spiritual side of themselves.
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.
