This Sunday’s Service – Having Holy Conversations

September 10 Service at 10:30 AM

Rev. Julie Lombard, Minister

It’s time to gather again in the fullness of our faith community by bringing waters from where 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 Unitarian Universalist tradition. This ritual is celebrated as folks return from their various summer travels. You are invited to bring water from your travels or water that has other significance for you. Youth Group gathered water from their retreat to the waterfalls of the White Mountains and I gather there will be water from far off places where some of you viewed the eclipse. These 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 never a competition to see who travelled the farthest; it is a celebration and blessing of our unique unity. Please join us for this multigenerational worship service which will explore the importance of our unity. The music this Sunday will be provided by the NSUU Singing Group and Judy Putnam, Accompanist/Soloist/Music Director. We welcome Helen Brandt as our new official Singing Group Conductor and have gained some new members in the Group. Be sure to come and hear the beautiful music we will make.
