Unitarian Universalists inquire into Balm of Gilead

Where do we find healing? Where do we go to be comforted, blessed, restored? In biblical times, there was a high-quality ointment called the Balm of Gilead. It had healing properties, and the term became a metaphor for a universal cure grounded in spirituality.

Beautiful hymns, prayers and teachings reflect this idea and call us to open our hearts to love and to be made whole.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice, to work with those who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world.

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote: the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park at the rear of the building. Child care is available.

Join us at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave, W., in Twin Falls. The Vendor Blender is located by the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Ave. W.

For information please contact Ken Whiting at 208-734-9161.
