Thank you for visiting. Join us at our next Sunday service, at 6200 N. Garrett in Garden City:
August 30, 10 am
"Moving beyond the 'Why?' questions," Kenneth Watts
"For everything there is a season and a time and for every purpose under
heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die...." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2)
Very poetic. But the difficult part of life is everything that happens
So often in the hospital I hear the "Why?" questions from family
members, patients, and others in the midst of painful medical realities.
In my early days of ministry in the conservative Christian tradition I
tried hard to have all the right answers. After all, I was the minister.
Nowadays, I find that keeping my mouth shut and listening is much more
helpful than spewing forth my seminary wisdom. As Mark Twain is said to
have put it: "We never become really and genuinely our entire and honest
selves until we are dead—and not then until we have been dead
years and years. People ought to start dead and then they would be
honest so much earlier." Dena Duke, celebrant; David Scott, service
Reverend Sara LaWall
Our Newly Called Minister

settled Minister. We're looking forward to the start of work together,
in August. More information about the completion of the multiyear
process is available on our Ministerial
Regular Service times

About Unitarian Universalists
Unitarian Universalists believe people are ultimately responsible for
their own religious beliefs and practice. We don't try to tell anyone
"this is what you should believe" or "this is how you should live."
Instead, we seek to build a supportive community in which individuals
can explore and share their spiritual understanding.
The Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) is a community of
members and friends, a mix of long-time Unitarian Universalists, people
who have left the church of their youth, spiritual seekers and avowed
atheists, Christians, Jews, agnostics, and humanists. We share a sense
of mystery and wonder of the universe, allegiance to the scientific
method, love of nature, and tolerance for diverse religious beliefs. We
share respect for life and the land which sustains us, and a commitment
to individual responsibility and freedom of belief. Follow the link to
our Membership page to learn more about
