On Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 2 to 6 pm, the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, will host a celebration and reception to honor and support the right of same-sex couples to legally marry in Idaho—at last!

To celebrate this long fought victory, BUUF’s building and beautiful grounds will be available to same sex couples who wish to be legally wed in Idaho. Clergy will be present to officiate weddings, renew vows, and bless existing marriages.

This event is freely hosted to also thank those who marched, rallied and testified to bring same-sex marriage to Idaho. (...read more...)

The Gordon/Warren song, “At Last”, made famous by blues great Etta James, will be the theme for this event. All are invited to eat cake, enjoy music, and celebrate the legal rights all couples now have to also pursue love and happiness.

We ask couples who wish to have their vows officiated by clergy contact the Bridge Event Center Coordinators at 208-891-8081.

This day may have come too late for some whose partners died before Idaho would recognize their marriage. If this applies to you, we invite you to bring a photo of your beloved so all may honor your story.

The Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellwowship is an inclusive religious community that lifts hearts, broadens minds and honors the interconnected web of life. Important to our members and friends is the practice of promoting justice and compassion in human relations, promoting the peaceful resolution of conflicts in our individual and communal lives and promoting efforts to bring human existence into greater harmony with our environment.

Nationally, Unitarian Universalists have been longtime advocates for justice, compassion, and equality, including advocating for the rights and dignity of gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, questioning, and intersex people. Here in Idaho, BUUF actively opposed the 1994 anti-gay initiative, and continues to support the ongoing “Add the Four Words” campaign. This celebration is in culmination for the successful work done to legalize same-sex marriage—at Last!

Welcome

Thank you for visiting. Join us at our next Sunday service, at 6200 N. Garrett in Garden City:

"Good Fences," Rev. Dana Worsnop

As the saying goes, Good fences make good neighbors. Sometimes fences can be unnecessary obstacles and yet they also set good, clear, healthy boundaries. How do we discern when to say yes and when to say no? An age-old human conundrum. Patricia Heeb, celebrant. Nancy Harms, service coordinator.

Regular Service times

Our regular Sunday services during September through May are at 9:30 and 11:15 am. Nursery care is available, and we have a children's religious exploration program during regular services.

About Unitarian Universalists

Unitarian Universalists believe people are ultimately responsible for their own religious beliefs and practice. We don't try to tell anyone "this is what you should believe" or "this is how you should live." Instead, we seek to build a supportive community in which individuals can explore and share their spiritual understanding.

The Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) is a community of members and friends, a mix of long-time Unitarian Universalists, people who have left the church of their youth, spiritual seekers and avowed atheists, Christians, Jews, agnostics, and humanists. We share a sense of mystery and wonder of the universe, allegiance to the scientific method, love of nature, and tolerance for diverse religious beliefs. We share respect for life and the land which sustains us, and a commitment to individual responsibility and freedom of belief. Follow the link to our Membership page to learn more about us.

Visitors are welcome at every Sunday Service. Contact us (official.ice@boiseuu.org) if you would like more information about our church or activities.
