As this challenging year ends, there are many reasons to be grateful — for the health of ourselves and our loved ones, for our wonderful UUSM community, for the healing of our nation, for the coming of the light. What are you grateful for?
In this “Lessons & Carols” service, we sing songs, share heartwarming stories and poems, and retell the tale of universal love come to life in the unlikeliest of places. Trim the tree, deck the halls, and gather around the monitor for a memorable Christmas Eve.
As we continue to consider stillness during this time when it is imposed upon us, we ask: how do we move through to something else? We reflect on stillness through the balance of light and dark that is Solstice, the “standing still of the sun.”
We come together to celebrate the ways UUism illuminates our journeys and brightens our world. We consider the values we hold dear, and refocus our hope to advance these values in the coming year. Our UU Fellowship of Redwood City (UUFRC) friends join us today.
Stillness implies slowing down, waiting for something to emerge, gestation. When is there too much stillness? How do we move through this time of imposed stillness? The story of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights (12/10-12/18), provides an opportunity for reflection.
