‘Take my yoke upon you and learn from me’ They were better synchronized. When we work in sync with one another, we become stronger and can work longer and more efficiently. When we take the Savior’s yoke upon us, he can help us work as one, stronger in spirit. We do not veer too much to the left or to the right, but go

In August 2012, we visited the George Ranch and I found this display of a yoke used for oxen and cattle. There was the explanation that the yoke was not to bind the cattle but that it was uses in order for them to work as one. That made them stronger and more

Get Your Motor Runnin’

By Jean Strahlendorf Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, Aug. 11, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (PUFF) will discuss “Our Transcendentalist Heritage,” presented by Ruth R. Rinehart, MA, an Aspirant to UU ministry. The Transcendentalists were America’s first group of public intellectuals, and they changed the course of our religious heritage. Although they were rooted firmly in the Christian tradition, their views were heretical in the 19th century Unitarian Church. This sermon will focus on three Unitarian men in the mid-1800s: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Andrews Norton and Theodore Parker. What is the relevance today of the Transcendentalists’ free-thinking rejection of the established Unitarian church? Where does our theology intersect? This message will lift up Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker’s mysticism and free thinking, which transcended their own time, with a compelling vision for us today. Rinehart is a member of the Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden and has just completed her first year in seminary, at Iliff School of Theology in Denver. When not studying sacred texts or white privilege at Iliff, she can be found working to better the lives of children navigating the lives of divorce, by helping their parents to live a more peaceful life. She is the president and founder of Three Trusts, Inc., specializing in transformational practices to promote peaceful co-parenting. The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
