Rev. James returns,

will explore orthodoxies

The Rev. Ron James returns to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Glenwood Springs Sunday, April 14, and will deliver a sermon titled “Castles of Orthodoxy.”

“This is a brief look at the tendency of systems, both religious and secular, to move us into compliance. In doing so over time, these systems lose resilience and human sensitivity, become moralistic and controlling in their areas of authority,” James said. “The letter of the law becomes more important than the spirit of the law.

The church meets at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. Coffee is served at 9:30 a.m., and the service starts at 10 a.m. All are welcome, and child care is provided. For more information, call Jan or Pat at 928-8721.
