February 18: Why here, why now? with Pastor Jenny

Pocatello Unitarian Universalist Fellowship originated in a vision or dream shared by its founders. Let’s talk about the dream as it manifested into ministry. What does this Fellowship represent in Pocatello, in Bannock County, in Idaho? Stick around for a potluck dinner afterwards.

Join us for a Potluck Dinner or "Linger Longer" reception after every service.  Check out the "Newcomers" page for additional information that you may find helpful.

RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION (RE)

Meetings on the 2nd & 4th Sundays at 4:00-5:30 pm at the Church Building, open to teens and adult

February 25:  What is Full Week Faith?  with Pastor Jenny

Pastor Jenny will introduce the group to this Religious Exploration program. While it originates from an effort to reach families with children, much of the material may be of interest to youth and  adults, and single friends or members of any age. Since Full Week Faith debuted in our Fellowship in December, some have wondered what it is, how to get it, and why do we have it? Pastor Jenny hopes to answer these questions and even brainstorm on ways to improve this very new approach to Religious Exploration.

March 11:  Mithraism  with Jeffry Shelton

The ancient Roman Mystery Cult Mithraism was a religion practiced in the Roman Empire from the 1st to 3nd centuries A.D. chiefly by soldiers. Although some of the ritual practices of the cult are known, the beliefs of the cult were and are largely mysterious. Clues to what Mithraists believed have been found in the iconography of their temples. Jeff will inform us of what is presently believed about Mithraism.

 

All are welcome to join in Religious Exploration, regardless of religious belief or church membership. RE sessions cover discussions of various short articles of topics covering religion, spirituality, or social justice.  All RE sessions are on the second and fourth Sundays. Come to the church at 4 pm to join us for stimulating conversation and new learning experiences. Articles, whenever possible, will be distributed prior to the session via email or discussion. Or check the "News & Events" page for current information.
