Our intergenerational Thanksgiving service comes at a tough time. The story The Table Where Rich People Sit, by Byrd Baylor and Peter Parnall, offers a way to think about our lives when we don’t have everything we want. With that story and a special performance from Greg Becker and Kris Geering, plus more adventures of Possum and friends and lots of beautiful music, we’ll literally count up our blessings and see how we’re doing.

Winter Solstice Service

Join us at UUCPA in the main hall on this longest night of the year! Our simple ceremony lasts under an hour, and is followed by abundant food – (cheese, dips, pies, nuts..) and also hot mulled wine and hot cider. Just come – food provided. Our solstice ceremony includes meditative music, readings, and all of us lighting candles to celebrate the return of light. We conclude by burning a yule log outdoors in our fire pit. Children and adults are welcome, we can all enjoy sharing a fire and some food on a dark night!
(Please note! This year the true winter solstice is on the 22nd, not the 21st, so please join us on Sunday the 22nd for our ceremony.)
