Unitarian Universalists celebrate Easter

TWIN FALLS — Celebrate Easter Sunday with an exploration of transformation. Karen Fothergill will share lessons from “Soul Matters” — a sermon about Easter by Rev. Dr. Martin Lavanhar, senior minister of All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Okla. Lavanhar’s sermon reflects on nature and its transformative beauty.

The public is welcome to hear the reading at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W. near the old hospital, Twin Falls. After the service, there will be an Easter egg hunt for the children, followed by a potluck for everyone. Bring a dish to share.

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.
