The Fourth Source: ‘Jewish and Christian Teachings’

By Jean Strahlendorf
Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, Sept. 22, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (PUFF) will discuss the Fourth Source: “Jewish and Christian Teachings.”

Unitarian Universalism is not based on any creed or doctrine and is a faith tradition that encourages and supports individuals in their personal search for truth and meaning that leads to a personal faith. Since it is our belief that no one system has all the truth, Unitarian Universalism draws from many different world religions, including Christianity and Judaism. Unitarian Universalism holds that most religions have something to teach us, and that revelation of the nature of the divine is ongoing. We hold that discovering our spirituality is a highly personal journey, and the light of truth can be found in many different places. Our faith tradition is guided by seven principles and six sources.

Julie Loar’s talk on the Fourth Source emphasizes the ”Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbor as our self.” This will be the fourth in a series of six talks over the next several months.

Loar is an award-winning author and has served on the steering committee of the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and has been the director of religious education. We have a children’s spiritual educational program and encourage families with children to please  join us for our Sunday service.

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.
