Unitarian Universalists embrace each journey

TWIN FALLS — Throughout our lives, most of us take many journeys including our own spiritual journey. For some, the spiritual journey may be very straightforward; but for many, it may be like a road with many curves, crossroads and dead ends. Our spiritual journey may lead to mainstream Christian, Muslim or Jewish faiths.

For others it leads to other religions, or it is without the presence or desire of a higher power in their lives.

Whatever direction each of us takes, it is important to embrace the journeys that take us on our own spiritual path.

The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at 160 Ninth Ave. E., Twin Falls.

Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The church is handicapped-accessible. Please park in the rear of the building or on the street in front or the side of the building.

For more information, call Ken Whiting at 208-410-8904 or email or go to
