Unitarian Universalists explore the idea of “home”

TWIN FALLS — The old song tells us, “Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.” In The “Wizard of Oz,” Dorothy’s magic involves truly knowing, “There’s no place like home.” Does the word mean a physical home? Is it a cherished idea or philosophy that grounds us? Is it certain people, wherever they are in the world? Is it a house of worship, a school or a place or work?

Rev. Elizabeth Greene will explore what “home” can mean to us, how deeply-important it is to feel “at home.” Please join us at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday to hear her speak on the topic. We are at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W. near the old hospital, Twin Falls.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support and challenge one another as we continue on our 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. We are handicapped-accessible. Parking is in the rear of the building.
