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
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.
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

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!

"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

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
