Unitarian Universalists learn about a simple twist of fate

TWIN FALLS — The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the church, 160 Ninth Ave. E.

Mary Beth Bolin, the new intern minister, will speak about some of the twists of fate in her life that brought her to the Magic Valley. She will explore the theme for September — Expectation.

How do we live when we expect a dismal fate? How do we live when we expect all the beauty, love and grace in the world to come toward us, flow through us and bless the world?

When and how does the divine show up in our lives and shatter all our expectations?

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 have a 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 on the side of the building.

For more information, call Ken Whiting at 208-410-8904 or email mvuuf83301@yahoo.com or go to magicvalleyuu.org.
