Scheduled Weekly Sunday Programs

The Unitarian Fellowship of Silver City invites a wide variety of speakers from both our congregation and from the community to give our Sunday presentations.

We welcome many points of view and enjoy diversity of opinion, knowledge and information. Join us on any Sunday for a thought-provoking topic and some fellowship with a conscious and humanitarian group of people. We serve coffee and snacks after each service. Services begin at 10 a.m. at The Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship of Silver City at 3845 N Swan St.

Speaker: Algernon D'Ammassa
Buddhism & Activism

Algernon D’Ammassa, founder of the Deming Zen Center, and creator of Theater Dojo which combines martial arts and meditation, will present a talk looking at the stories and metaphors we use to describe a spiritual path, which is itself a metaphor.  D’Ammassa is also a journalist for the Deming Headlight and writes a weekly column, “Desert Sage” and is also a playwright. His "Killing the Buddha," a performance mixing storytelling with musical improvisation based on Greek and Buddhist mythology, was recently performed in Tucson. Childcare is available this Sunday.

Feb 25th
Speaker: Heidi Ogas
"In Praise of Destruction
In times when everything seems to be falling apart around us and we have no control over it, Heidi Ogas tries to remember that her father, a Unitarian Universalist minister, always used to say to look at the importance of downs as well as ups in life. Heidi will share part of her father's sermon titled "In Praise of Destruction" and why it is important to her in these times.  This Sunday will be a Family Program service with children’s activities.
