Festivals of Light is a wonderful multigenerational service centered around Faith traditions and Winter Holidays with the message of light (Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and more). Join us as we learn how each of these traditions honor the light, and connect to us as Unitarian Universalists. Paula Gribble will lead this service, but you will also hear from many other voices (of all ages), as well as wonderful music. Come and celebrate the light!
Topic: Lifespan Faith Engagement
What we’ve gone through this past two years – what we are continuing to go through – has caused all of us to adjust. In order to keep growing, we have certainly called on the parents and teachers among us for support. But beyond that we have had to reach into ourselves, to bring the parent and teacher within us forward. Come celebrate our Lifespan Faith Engagement program, parents and teachers, and honor the transformation that can come from within.
Our lives are a rollercoaster. Some of us are in the seat at the front with our hands raised, squealing with great joy. Some are in the back seat, letting the rest of the cars pull them along. And some are in the middle, trying not to feel too overwhelmed by the movement. All seats are valid places to be at different times. Come join the ride as Paula Gribble explores these ups and downs, and how the power of commitment, safety, and surrender all play a significant role in our lives.
This past year has been a challenging one for all ages. Let’s let some joy in the room! Please join our Children’s Faith Engagement program, 3 graduating High School Senior Youth, and LFE program for an exploration and celebration of how staying committed and connected has helped us all survive. We will have participation from all ages, as well as have a special recognition of our bridging senior youth.
There is no final frontier! We keep growing and learning as long as we choose to engage. Join us as we lift off our Lifespan Faith Engagement Program for the year. In community, we boldly go where some have gone before, though what we learn and how we learn may be the new frontier. In the words of Captain Picard, “ENGAGE!”
These times are filled with the revealing and naming of harm, disrupting old oppressive systems of oppression, and hope that a reinvention of our society may emerge. What is our dream for a future of hope and justice for all people? What do we tell the children, about the past, the present and how we are working to create the future?
