UU sermon topic: 1+2=4

By Jean Strahlendorf
Special to The PREVIEW

On Dec. 1, the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present a sermon titled “When 1+2=4” by Diana Hultgren, a candidate for Unitarian Universalist ministry.

No, that isn’t a typo. Scientist and philosopher Buckminster Fuller once demonstrated “synergy” to show how the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

Hultgren will discuss how we can unfold the potential of synergy in beloved community, to “be the change we wish to see.”

Hultgren currently serves as an emergency chaplain at Denver Health Medical Center, Denver’s public hospital. She has previously served as a chaplain in hospitals in Alaska and Hawaii. She will graduate from Iliff School of Theology in Denver in June 2014.

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship sponsors a children’s spiritual educational program and encourages families with children to please join us for our Sunday service. Our children’s religious programs teach our Unitarian Universalist heritage, ethical living, moral precepts to love your neighbor, work for a better world, and to search for truth with an open mind. Arts and crafts projects also are utilized to illustrate these principles.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosa 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.
