“We are born of love; Love is our mother.” – Rumi

This Sunday, our youth will talk about mothers and Mother’s Day.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Uptown Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Children are welcome. There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom. You may park on the south side of the building, which is marked reserved for the PWA.

Monday Starts Chalica

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 two daily blog posts each day, one that will have ideas for activities for each principle and one with a devotion for the day.

 

Hope you enjoy celebrating this unique holiday with us.

Namaste,
Cricket

Blessed Ostara

Ostara is the pagan holiday celebrating the Spring Equinox.

 

Blessing from A Book of Pagan Prayer

The snow sinks back into the Earth,
there to nourish the sleeping life
that waits patiently for its time come.
Goddess of spring, you have performed this miracle through many ages.
Transform, again, the frozen white into the pliant green.
Work, again, the ancient magic,
and bring spring to our land.

 

Blessings on the holy day.

Namaste,
Cricket
