Unitarian Universalists side with Greta

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., Twin Falls. Its visiting minister, the Rev. Jenny Peek, will offer her message on the youth-led movement for transformative climate laws.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old from Sweden, urges us to start living as though our house is on fire because indeed, it is.

The earth is our home and is in a catastrophic crisis. Hope no longer is merely a state of mind — it is action. Action of the people — for our youth and future generations.

Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The church is handicapped-accessible.
