The horn will blow The piper calls The Stags will dance As darkness falls
Yule has always been a special time at the Concord UU, and this year will be no exception. This year we will see the return of the beloved Stag Dance. These Spirits of the winter and the longest night will guide us with their ethereal dance. We will celebrate the shortest day, the longest night, and the return of the glory of the Sun.
This is a very inclusive ritual and celebration. Together we will call upon the Spirits of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Together, we will sing back the Sun. Together we will dance in the light. We will sing old songs, and new, to celebrate the Goddess and the God and the blessings of nature. Dancing through the aisles; drums to shake the rafters; songs to stir the heart; and chants to fire the spirit. Yule is NOT to be missed!
Don’t be shy. We’ll teach all you need to know. If you “can’t sing,” 150 or so people will help you carry the tune! If you can't dance, just HOLD ON!
BE WILD AND FREE ON SOLSTICE NIGHT
Stay and chat after the ritual if you can (and catch your breath). You are invited to bring a snack or drink to share after the ritual if you would like. We hope to see you there!
Join American Friends Service Committee on the longest night of the year, the first night of Winter, to honor our homeless brothers and sisters who died in 2012. Non-perishable food items will be gratefully accepted, and donated to the Friendly Kitchen.
