On Sunday, Oct. 7, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Science and Religion,” presented on DVD by the Rev. Angela Hererra.
She points out that, “Science and Religion have often been posed as opposites. Science tries to document the factual character of the natural world and develop theories that coordinate and explain these facts, while Religion operates in the equally important but utterly different realm of human purpose, meaning, and values — subjects that the factual domain of science might illuminate but can never resolve.”
Hererra, a graduate of Harvard Divinity School, is a delightful and brilliant young minister in the Unitarian Church of Albuquerque, N.M., who wrestles eloquently with the deeper issues of life.
Anna Ramirez, children’s religious education coordinator, is starting up the children’s programming for the school year 2012-2013.
The children’s service is provided during the main service and centers on the Seven UU Principles. In the children’s own words, they are: (1) Each person is important, (2) Be kind in all you do, (3) Be free to learn together, (4) Search for what is true, (5) Each person needs a voice, (6) Build a fair and peaceful world and (7) Take care of Earth’s lifeboat.
The 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 of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
