September 11 Service at 10:30 AM
Reverend Julie Lombard, Minister
It’s time to gather again in the fullness of our faith community by bringing water from where ever our journeys have taken us while we were apart. The annual water service, sometimes called a “Water Communion” or “Waters of the World,” is a beloved UU tradition. This ritual is held as folks return from their various summer travels. All are invited to bring water from those travels or water that has other significance for them. The waters are poured into a common bowl to signify our coming together again. It’s a way of symbolizing that many are one. A water communion is not a competition to see who went the farthest away; it’s a celebration and blessing of our unique unity. Please join us for this multigenerational worship service which will explore the importance of water throughout our world as I tell three short stories that will forever change the way you look at water. The Singing Group will be providing the music.
