Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, July 28, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will continue to explore the Third Source, Wisdom from the World Religions, presented on DVD by members of the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Albuquerque, N.M.

Renz-Whitmore, a lay leader from this congregation introduced this sermon with these words, “While UUs are often caricatured as collectors of religious curiosity who believe in nothing, this does not describe the deep desire we have for exploring meaning and mystery. We are not collectors….We search for tools useful in our daily lives, tools to make our interactions easier and richer, tools to make us better human being, tools to make us more wise, more patient, and more at peace.”

That search leads us to study and appreciate the wisdom inherent in many diverse religions. Three members of the congregation contribute to our study with their stories of the three different world religions they represent — paganism, Buddhism and Judaism, each one emphasizing the similarities to Unitarian Universalism.

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.
