UU Fellowship to celebrate Earth Day

On Sunday, April 21, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will celebrate Earth Day, which is Monday, April 22, in a service led by Christina Knoell.

Knoell will explain how this day came about, introduce those in attendance to some of the rituals that surround its celebration, and let them know what is going on locally in the effort to reduce our carbon footprint on the earth.

Christina Knoell is the executive director of the Area Agency on Aging, the mission of which is to keep folks living independently in their homes with dignity and respect, and she is passionate about her work with the elderly. A second passion is to make the world a better place, and to that end she joined the Peace Corps as an idealistic young person.

To Unitarian Universalists, Earth Day is of special importance, as it allows UUs to celebrate their 7th Principle: “Respect for the Interdependent Web of All Existence, of Which We are a Part.”

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 of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.  All are welcome.
