The Jewish High Holy Days of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur mark a period of renewal, marked by repentance and atonement, the beginning of a new year. Let us consider how processes of covenant, relationship and renewal mark the patterns of our lives.
Topic: Holy Days
Our voices lift to celebrate the season with caroling in the frosty air, in the beauty of the Labyrinth. In a tradition that dates back centuries, we will keep it simple, joining our voices in beloved music of the season. Music handouts will be provided, and candles for sharing the light. Everyone is welcome, please wear a mask, dress for the weather and bring your own chair if you want to sit.
In a season of darkness, we celebrate a season of love, bringing song and story to life the dark with our virtual Christmas Eve service for all ages. Gather on Zoom to enjoy the special pageant with our children and youth, along with readings, stories and music to brighten the season with love. Have a candle handy as we join across virtual space to share the light.
This is a Zoom-only service.
We celebrate the light of our chalice, and all the traditions that light our way. Join us for Festivals of Light, a wonderful multigenerational service centered around all the Winter Holidays (Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and more). We will explore how each of these traditions matter to us as Unitarian Universalists, and enjoy wonderful music!

Entering the High Holy Days, Jewish tradition reminds us that our lives are woven of endings and beginnings. Over and over we find ourselves making space for what might be — releasing the past and renewing our commitments to life. As summer draws to a close, and we cycle into a season of renewal, let us prepare to deepen into what is best within us, and to embrace what might unfold.
