If you have ever read or owned an “I would rather be…” bumper sticker, you might have felt a twinge of not following your passion or heart in work or life. What would you really rather be doing? Being? How would you rather be living and, if you believed it were possible, what would you do next? Let’s explore these questions together with Rev. Katie Romano Griffin on 1/6. We will also be sharing the offering plate with A Wider Circle. A wonderful organization that makes possibilities realities for many people in our area.
In the Kwanzaa spirit of Nia, purpose - to make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness, who were our LGBT sibling pioneers who paved the way in our UU faith for us?
Let us join together and celebrate the birth of a child that would later change the world and witness his life through the lens of women of the Bible. A meditative service of music, prayer, and personal reflection. The Adult Choir will will be joined by harpist Melissa Dvorak, guitarist Matt Trkula, and marimba player Phillip Drembus, to reprise a Choir favorite, Conrad Susa’s Carols and Lullabies of the Southwest.
We join together in story and song, with carols and candle-lights, and rekindle the Christmas spirit of joy, hope, and peace within each of us. The Youth Choir will will add the sweet harmonies of Gloria, Gloria, Hodie and Bring a Torch Jeannette Isabella to the service.
This service is designed especially for families with young children as well as for all-ages. This year’s service features our annual multigenerational Christmas story, which this year will be the Dr. Seuss classic, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. The Children’s Choir will sing You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.
