Come and join us for our Imbolc Ritual and Celebration. Newcomers to the path are welcome as always.
Imbolc is the halfway point between Yule, the longest night, and Ostara, the spring equinox. This is a ritual where many celebrate and nurture the growing light.
The winter is cold, and the dark nights have been long. As the sun climbs in the sky, the days grow longer.
Those who are weary of the darkness, the snow, and the ice, begin to feel the hope and promise of the coming spring.
Join the Concord UU Earth Centered Spirituality Group as we celebrate the return of the light, and longer days.
Please bring a candle from your home to bless in the Candle Ritual. Anything from tea light to pillar candle will do (tapers won't work). You can then take that blessing home with you.
Days grow long Sun grows strong Magic night Candles bright Dance and drums Springtime comes
We hope to see you there!
On Sunday February 3rd, we will be having a Celebration of Burundi Culture: Burundi food, crafts & clothing, song, slides & stories, drumming, dancing, and a chance to learn from each other.
Come to the fundraising luncheon, held after the service, to have the opportunity to taste some traditional Burundi dishes, prepared by the women of the community, along with other African dishes that will be made by adventuresome UU cooks. If you’d like to join in the food preparation, we’ll be in our kitchen cooking on Saturday, February 2.
If you’ve been looking for a way to learn more about the refugee experience, this is a great opportunity. UU Friends of Refugees hopes to increase connections between the UU and Burundi communities.
