Explore love and spirituality with Unitarian Universalists
TWIN FALLS — Unitarian Universalists by definition have declined traditional religious structures and dogmas, although our religion does look for value in other religious traditions. While our paths to the spiritual and mystical are diverse and individual, we believe that there is great power in love. In our experience love, the mystical and the spiritual are intertwined. How we access the mystical and spiritual powers of love is less clear. What has become clear to me is that love may be the closest thing to God that we will ever experience. Could they be the same thing?
Most of us wish to explore spirituality and fellowship in a supportive environment. Please join us at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship to explore love, the mystical and the spiritual 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 we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support and challenge one another as we continue on our 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. We are handicapped-accessible. Parking is in the rear of the building.
