UUs tour the ancient cultural sites of Egypt


By Pauline Benetti

Special to The PREVIEW

Julie Loar, longtime member of the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (PUUF), recently returned from leading one of her frequent tours to the ancient cultural sites of Egypt. She was accompanied by fellow PUUF members Diane Davis and Joan Ward as they toured the historic sites in Egypt in late October.

From the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx on the Giza Plateau to the temples at Luxor, the Valley of the Queens, the Valley of the Kings and beyond, with a four-day cruise on the Nile, Davis and Ward experienced the ancient times of an amazing culture. They also had the opportunity to see a craftsman at work at a rug maker and visited stores for papyrus, alabaster, essential oils and cartouches and other jewelry.

Our fellowship offers each individual support in our unique spiritual path and an opportunity to participate in positive social and environmental action. We welcome diversity and invite everyone to share in our faith community.

Religious Exploration (RE) classes are held on the third and fourth Sundays and continue through to May. For more information about RE, contact Anna Ramirez at afrancis_@hotmail.com.

Find us in Unit B-15 of the Greenbriar Plaza. From North Pagosa Boulevard, turn right onto Park Avenue and right again into Greenbriar Plaza, then turn left and continue around the complex until you see the Unitarian Universalist sign as it faces the mountains. Join us. For further information about the PUUF, visit pagosauu.org or call 731-7900.
