Three Programs This Busy Holiday Month, December 2014!
“Journey Through Two Thousand Years of Unitarian Universalist History”
A film series to be shown on the 2nd Sunday of each month
This film series was shown last year in conjunction with Souper Sunday. It was such an important introduction to the history of Unitarian Universalist History that we’ve decided to show it again so that more of you can see it. It’s intended for newcomers as well as life-long UUs. You are invited to bring your lunch with you as you view these 60 minute films. We need volunteers willing to set up the television & act as hosts, so let Carol know if you are willing. Please! firstname.lastname@example.org
Women’s Spirituality Gatherings
Connie Dunn and Carol Younes
The first Sunday each month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. is our regular meeting time. We meet in the Cook Room. However, this month we have two events:
Sunday, Dec. 7 – Our night will focus on Nephthyes (pronounced Nep-these). She is the Egyptian Goddess of the Night. This will help us prepare for Solstice – the longest night of the year.
Sunday, Dec. 21 – We will be meeting in the sanctuary for this meeting. You may bring a snack or (non-alcoholic) drinks to share. This night will be a Winter Solstice Ritual to celebrate the Mother of the Night on the longest night of the year. Since this is a formal ritual, we are encouraging women to dress in sea colors. We will be honoring the Ancient West African Goddess, Yemaya. She is a Mermaid Goddess, who gave birth to the women. She is often seen as a suckling mother, but she is also fierce.
To honor her: Bring small sea items for the altar. We will also be singing and dancing, so we invite you to bring drums, flutes, and other percussion instruments, if you wish. After the ritual, plan to stay and have snacks with us.
