Unitarian Universalists explore living with intent

TWIN FALLS — It is said that we should live less from habit and more from intent. When we don’t think about who we are and what we want, life tends to live us instead of us living it. We get caught up in the thick of thin things.

To live with intent is to live with meaning and purpose and has been described as the fundamental creative act, for it is to consciously affect the quality of our light. In ways simple and profound, we can direct the nature of our life experience and our effect in the world through our intentions.

The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W. near the old hospital, Twin Falls.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths individuals travel. Congregations are places where people celebrate, support and challenge one another as they continue on their spiritual journeys. 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. Child care is available. The center is handicapped-accessible. Parking is in the rear of the building.
