A Pagan Way of Making Meaning / Samhain
As Unitarian Universalists, we draw from many sources, one of which is "Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature". For pagans, Samhain marks the halfway point between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice. This is a sacred point in the year when we are gifted a time of introspection. It allows us to let go of what no longer serves us or what we have lost, it is an opportunity to look more deeply inward, and choose our paths with intention. This service will explore the importance of ritual in all of our lives, and how ritual is at the core of mindful practices which help us to set and maintain our intentions while enriching our lives with meaning. You are encouraged and invited to bring pictures or symbolic items representative of loved ones or ancestors to place on the altar (as we have done in the past for Dia de los Muertos).
Our Annual Three Miracles Birth Pageant will take place on December 30th during service..
Rehearsal - 12/30 - 9:45am - Choir & 10:15am Play
Sign-up here to be a part and to bring some breakfast items for that morning of the Pageant.
The short Thanksgiving service on 11/18/18 will be followed by our annual BUUF Thanksgiving dinner. And as many of you know, our Thanksgiving service is a big feast! In addition to the expressions of gratitude, we need people to volunteer to bring food. Catherine Fountain has graciously put together a Sign-Up Genius list of our food needs. Please go there and volunteer to bring a dish! We’ll also have a laptop available this Sunday (11/11) during announcements for those who need help using Sign-Up Genius, or who would just prefer to verbally indicate what they’re bringing to the Thanksgiving feast.
