Winter Solstice Celebration
Friday, December 22, 2006
FREE (Donations Accepted)
Everyone is invited to attend the Winter Solstice Celebration on Friday, December 22, at 7 P.M. in the Sanctuary. (Note from MJ: Get there early. This was packed last year!)

Solstice is a planetary-wide celebration of the longest night and the returning of the Light. Many religions have a Sun Child born at this time of year. This non-denominational ritual will feature readings, moments of silence, and songs that take us on a journey from the quiet of darkness to a joyous celebration of returning Light. The participatory nature of this event is perfect for families with children of all ages (activities will be available for toddlers). When the Celebration concludes, you can enjoy an indoor feast (please bring a dish to share), an outdoor ceremonial bonfire, or a candlelit walk on UUI’s permanent outdoor labyrinth.
