UU Fellowship to Consider ‘That Which Sustains’

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship invites you to attend a presentation titled “That Which Sustains: A View at the Crossroads of Science and Religion,” with visiting pastor Dean Cerny, this Sunday, April 23, for its regular service.

Pastor Dean Cerny

In honor of the Earth, this Sunday we ask what is it that sustains not only life on this planet, but also within the interior world of our being. Our relationship with the planet Earth is one of profound intimacy. Together, religion and science have done a very poor job indeed of nurturing this relationship in a coordinated fashion. Join us as we honor the Earth, ourselves and the hopeful role that religion and science can serve for the future of life as we know it.

Pastor Dean Cerny was raised in the Presbyterian faith in rural Wisconsin. He graduated from Arizona State in Religious Studies and obtained his Master’s degree in religion and theology with honors in historical theology from the United Theological Seminary in Minnesota. While in seminary, he attended the UU Fellowship of Northfield, MN.

Pastor Cerny lives with his partner of 37 years, John, and their 4 dogs in an off-grid home in rural Kanab, Utah. He will soon become a part-time resident of Pagosa Springs, leading services at the Pagosa UU Fellowship twice each month. This is a collaborative effort between Pastor Cerny and the Fellowship as they explore the potential possibilities of a “settled” form of spiritual leadership.

This program reflects the Unitarian Universalist principles of “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning” and “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.”

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a caring, inclusive fellowship dedicated to spiritual growth, justice and serving the needs of our larger community. As a Welcoming Congregation, we invite everyone to share in our faith community. We cherish diversity and foster a safe environment for all.

Enjoy refreshments and conversation after services, which are held Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in Unit B-15 of the Greenbriar Plaza. From North Pagosa Boulevard, turn onto Park Avenue; then turn into the Greenbriar Plaza, drive to the east side of the parking lot and look for the Unitarian Universalist sign, facing north.
