How much church is “too churchy?”
TWIN FALLS — Some people think Unitarian Universalism is “not a real church.” It’s the kind of criticism that you get used to when you belong to a creed-less faith. But strangely enough, some people check out UU and still feel it’s “too churchy.” Why? Join us as we think about not only what makes church, a church, but how church and the beloved community relate to one another.
Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship meets at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday at 588 Addison Ave. W. in Twin Falls. The building is handicapped accessible, please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available. For more information, please call 208-734-9161.
