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.

June 17th
Speaker: Joni Kay Rose
Murphy’s Law and Buddha’s First Noble Truth

While Buddha’s First Noble Truth, dukkha in Pali, is commonly translated as “suffering,” most contemporary Buddhist scholars now acknowledge it encompasses much more than that. Ms. Rose compares dukkha with Murphy’s Law: Things have a way of screwing up. Thus does the express train get stuck behind the local and people end up in positions they’re entirely unsuited for. The First Noble Truth teaches us to perceive life as it really is, not a fantasized image of how we think things ought to be. Only then can we take action, individually and collectively, to make the changes that need to be made.

Tales of Trails

Long time Silver City residents, Nancy Gordon and her husband, Ralph, love to hike. For the June 24 Unitarian Universalist Fellowship program she will share stories of their hikes and pack trips taken in the Gila and elsewhere.
Her presentation will include a slide show displaying sights and scenes from these travels. She will talk about "peak experiences" and attempt to explain why they hike. Come for good information -- and inspiration!
