“The culture is telling us to go faster and faster, cram more and more into less and less time. One of the main benefits of slowing down is we start to get to know ourselves better; we find and forge the right path for us through life.” – Carl Honoré
This Sunday, Cricket Hall will give a lesson titled “Chalica: Seeking Joy and Stillness in the Principles”
We are forgoing meeting in person during the coronavirus epidemic, meeting instead through the magic of ZOOM. We share music, readings, and hymns on our usual presentation slides, have a story and a talk, and share joys and sorrows, as well as a virtual “coffee hour” discussion starting at 10:30, with the service at 11. If you prefer not to be seen, video is optional. If you would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and a link, or for help with using ZOOM.
Please Join us for Worship.
If you are a regular attendee, we have added you to our Google Group if we had an email address. If you have not gotten a group email already, please email email@example.com so that we can add you to the group, which we will be using for staying in touch with each other during this time. Public announcements will continue to be posted here on the website and on our Facebook page and Twitter account, as usual.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form for more information or write to us at PO Box 523, Clarksburg WV 26302
Chalica is a week-long celebration of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. The holiday first emerged in 2005 out of a wish to have a holiday organized around Unitarian Universalist values.
Chalica begins on the first Monday in December and lasts seven days. Each day, a chalice is lit and the day is spent reflecting on the meaning of that day’s principle and doing a good deed that honors that principle. Not all Unitarian Universalists celebrate Chalica, but it has a growing following. There is a Chalica Facebook page, blog, and many Chalica-themed videos on YouTube.
Here is an article from UU World about it.
This year we will have a daily blog post for all seven days of Chalica. It will include a few activities, a reflection, and a video reading.
Hope you enjoy celebrating this unique holiday with us.
Chalica is a week long holiday celebrating the Seven UU Principles. It is a time of reflection, community, and living our faith.
Here are some ways to help you celebrate.
A Thought to Ponder:
If you had a magic wand, what would you do to make this world a better place?
