Humans are creatures greatly informed by our use of language. One way we use language is to name people and things. Lakes, rivers, eras, and even religious communities are named. Is that what they then become?
Speaker: Rev. Ken Jones
Bring the family in this mix of a traditional Christmas Eve service with our contemporary Unitarian Universalist message.
All ages will enjoy this holiday celebration where we decorate our seasonal tree with the rituals and traditions that bring meaning to many of us.
As our nation and culture prepare for our most significant seasonal observance, Rev. Jones hopes to put some of the hype into context.
Prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, Rev. Jones reminds us that gratitude is a spiritual practice. We’ll have our annual Soup and Bread Luncheon following the service.
How has Unitarian Universalism changed lives? How has it changed yours? This morning Rev. Jones will offer some food for thought.
People of all ages can participate in this service honoring our ancestors, or “those who’ve gone before.” You are invited to bring a momento of a deceased loved one to share if you wish.
In this era of almost constant change, including those affecting religious communities, we should ask ourselves what it is we will hold on to, and what we should let pass away. https://www.uucyakima.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/What-is-Church.pdf
A traditional ritual to bring us into autumn and a new church year. Bring some water representing where your spiritual well is filled.
