"Rejoice that with the sun, we are reborn.
Small candles against the dark, yet before them flees the night.
Turn, turn again toward the Sun and shake off Winter's weary hold.
Bleak death cannot command the Light.
The Dance, released, begins anew; we return once more to life."

Celebrate the winter solstice with quiet singing and a special candle lighting ceremony among fresh greens. After the service enjoy holiday treats and happy conversation.

With the gift of freedom comes the responsibility to practice “justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.”  How can we, together, be part of the solution in a world marred by injustice, fouled with inequity, and absent of compassion?

As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations, and a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.  We are committed to promoting these values for both members and friends, for both adults and children.

Today, we invite those members and friends who are the primary religious educators of children in their care (and children old enough to understand) to reaffirm their commitments in a ceremony of Child Dedication.

In addition, we will recognize those adults and youth who have become members of the Fellowship in the past six months.

Please see Chaplain James Gibbons Walker for additional details.

The end of October is considered a liminal time, when the veil between life and death grows thin.

In both Samhain and the Day of the Dead, food is set aside for ancestors and protective spirits.  It is a time to honor those who have died who remain close to us.

Please bring a photograph or memento of a loved one who has died as we honor the gifts they have given us and remember them.
