Unitarian Universalists explore the wisdom in going too far

TWIN FALLS — When you try to keep your life in perfect balance, there are bound to be missteps. There is wisdom in kindly and gently allowing those missteps to positively inform your future self, while at the same time avoiding a shame spiral.

The public is welcome at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday to learn how missteps can become positive tools to improve future well-being. Christiana Charbonneau, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden, Utah, for nearly 25 years will speak on the subject at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W. near County West in Twin Falls.

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 at the rear of the building.
