Aspen Chapel minister speaks to Unitarians

For this Sunday’s service at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Glenwood Springs, Rev. Ron James, adjunct minister at the Aspen Chapel, has titled his sermon, “Here and There: The Story of Two Worlds.” Of the sermon he writes, “It is looking at the purely rational approach to truth as incomplete and inadequate, and therefore distorting to `reality,’ requiring us to look at other `genres’ of experience. I will be laying out the deficiencies and dangers of a purely rational approach and suggesting that the cosmos has mysteries that the rational has obscured.”

The children’s program is titled, “It’s a Small World: We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world,” featuring a story about Samantha Smith.

The congregation meets at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. Coffee hour at 9:30 a.m., followed by the service at 10. For information, call Jan or Pat at 928-8721.
