Unitarian Universalists ask “How is it with your spirit?”

TWIN FALLS — In a time when technology offers us ever greater means of connection, humans are reporting a sense of loneliness and isolation more than ever before. Past experience teaches us to pause and reflect on the promises and the pitfalls of these advancements.

The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the church, 160 Ninth Ave. E., Twin Falls. Hear Rev. Jenny’s reflection on the crossroads of heart and mind.

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. Childcare 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
