The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ligonier Valley is a member congregation of the Unitarian
Universalist Association. Ours is a denomination whose principles are based on tolerance and freedom of religious belief with
an emphasis on the integration of faith and reason. Our roots date back at least 400 years to Poland and Transylvania. We
have had many notable thinkers and activists such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Clara Barton and Albert Schweitzer as members. While
our community's heritage is Judeo-Christian we find value in opening ourselves to a variety of religious experiences.
In September 2007 we received the status of "Welcoming Congregation" from the Unitarian
Universalist Association. This was the culmination of a two year long program including workshops, discussions and outreach
programs designed to support the rights and worth of bisexual, gay and lesbian people and to make them and all other individuals
to feel safe, secure and welcome in our congregation.
thy neighbor. No exceptions.” – Jesus

7 Once Upon a Time Beautiful princesses, wicked witches, handsome princes, evil stepmothers,
talking animals, enchanted forests, fairy godmothers, dragons, elves, giants, and gnomes... Fairy tales have been passed down
through the ages, from all cultures around the world. Some people say they're too scary for kids; others say they
provide important life lessons. What do you say, and what's your favorite? Presented by Rev. Rebecca Booher.
Feb. 14 Let’s Talk About Love How can we truly
love each other? Should we start by loving ourselves? Rev. Bobbie Hineline will help us explore the idea of love.
Feb. 21 Love Me Like a Rock With Valentine’s Day
now in the dust (even if the chocolates have held out!), we’ll explore what it might mean to be “devoted”
to those we currently love and to those we might love in the future. Is “unconditional" love really possible between
humans? And when it comes to those we have loved in the past, how might we strive (when possible) to “remember the mile
and savor it well? Rev. Robin Zucker will present.
Into the Light Just back from Uganda, Dr. Renee Waun will offer an update on the various projects and programs going
on at ABC Divine Foundation School in Mutundwe, which we support. Fair Trade African crafts will be available for sale.
Our classes provide religious education free of dogma. Exploring religious
truth, meaning and experience is central to UU faith. In our communities and as individuals we seek lives of meaning anchored
by values and a commitment to promote principles of justice, safety, tolerance and encouragement.
