Unitary Universalist Congregation Beacon: Solstice: from the Latin sol stetit meaning immobile sun. At the end of December, the ancients waited and wondered if the sun would start moving again and if the light would push back again on the Ferris wheel of life. Since that time, humans from a multitude of cultures have marked this vital passage from darkness to light with myths, folk tales and stories of wisdom; with songs, songs and rituals. Take the journey as we cross in three distinct ways: by flight, by surrender, and by grace. This morning we will celebrate and honor the Solstice with tales of a world treasure and folk songs from Beacon Worship Associates and musicians. Reverend Robin will host the service with Linda Ochi, Nancy Paxton and Cheryl Austin. Music by Jason Drahos, Rebecca Prizznick, Grace Ditsworth and Barry Malpas. Come to the after-service gatherings at 11:00 a.m. to connect, share the joys and sorrows, and reflect on the service. These will be held in person, in the backyard of the church so that we can remove our masks.
Flagstaff Unit: Who is this kid? What’s all the fuss? Tell me the story. The holidays are a time when many come together through the story of Christmas, the story of the Menorah oil and lighting, heart shaped cookies to represent the leaves of the Bodi tree or to dance to celebrate the Promise of Light as the winter solstice rises upon us. We cling to these traditions and stories to be revived, renewed in Hope, Peace, Love and Joy. Everything is amplified by our rituals of decorating, lighting candles, eating, drinking and being happy. In the darkest time of the year. We bring Light by celebrating the BIRTH – the REBORN of the Good within – the Divine which is expressed in each of us. Sunday December 9 at 10:30 am LIVE or live on www.unittyofflagstaff.org join Reverend Penni Honey as we explore and rediscover our history of good. Music with Matt Devlin and Trina Goetz. Join us for our Winter Solstice Celebration, December 21 5:30 p.m. at 1800 S Milton, Suite 103 Firepit, Drum Circle and Circle Singing along with music and singers. Christmas Eve candlelight vigil Open to ALL on December 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come and sit in the peace of the season. Guided meditation every hour. Light some candles and enjoy the peace. ALL ARE WELCOME !!
