Unitarian Universalist features guest speaker

The North Idaho Unitarian Universalist Church will feature Doug Huigen, a member of the Spokane Unitarian Universalist Church, speaking on the downside of fundamentalism in any religion.

“Father Abraham, Look What You Started,” will be presented Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the Harding Family Center, 15th and Wallace.

Huigen was a Methodist minister in Colorado and Montana, and is a graduate of the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. For 25 years he managed and then owned the Job Resource Center in Spokane, providing employment and training services for people with disabilities, ex-offenders and other disadvantaged persons. He sold the business and is now writing and counseling people in extended-care facilities.

Child care is provided during the service, and a coffee hour follows.
