Lighthouse hosts free matinee movie

Unitarian Universalists study the origin of Eostre
TWIN FALLS — The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at 160 Ninth Ave. E., Twin Falls.
Guy Hopkins will speak on the origin of Eostre, about which he says, “It is a day of balance, as the day and night hours are approximately the same length. A season that brings fertility and growth, marking our passage into the spring season and into summer. We begin to notice the hours of light getting longer, and the heat of the sun is warmer. Trees are waking, animals are stirring in their dens and the quickening of the Earth herself is felt strongly. All things are wanting to take stride, leap about and play. So, we look at Eostre or Ostara to find the origins of the bunny and egg and the beginning of summer.”
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 church is handicapped-accessible. Please park in the rear of the building or on the street in front or the side of the building.
