Water is a semi-renewable resource that will become increasingly scarce on this planet in the coming years. Examining your relationship and knowledge of water will enable you to deepen both your faith and your understanding.
What is our relationship with forgiveness? Is it, as some suggest, a spiritual practice? Or is it merely pragmatic? During these days of divisive and hurtful political dialogue we might usefully ask ourselves where forgiveness fits into our lives.
This week we will be exploring life stages and transitions with a service on rites of passage and in-between times. We tend to associate the concept of rites of passage with the transition from childhood to adulthood, but this is just one of many transitions in life which have been traditionally marked with ritual. We'll explore he relationship between gradual and dramatic change, and ask what it takes to navigate this in life-giving ways, as well as the role of mentors and communities of support.
As we gather together in community once again after summer's break, we will celebrate the UU tradition of Water Communion. While we will certainly share waters from our recent journeys, we will also explore how other kinds of water can be recognized as sacred. (Please bring a small amount of water from your experience).
