“We are all longing to go home to some place
we have never been—a place half-remembered and half-envisioned
we can only catch glimpses of from time to time.
Community.
Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion
without having the words catch in our throats.
Somewhere a circle of hands
will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter,
voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength
that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done.
Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing.
A circle of friends.
Someplace where we can be free.” – By Starhawk from Dreaming the Dark: Magic, Sex, and Politics (Beacon Press)

Join us for Worship: This Sunday, John Hall will give a history of UU Paganism.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m.  at the Progressive Women’s Association 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.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

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

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

How I found the Shinto-Pagan Path

“It was thanks to Shinto that I was able to resolve this “science versus religion” conflict that had stopped me from becoming a practicing Pagan. The Japanese have a great respect for science and technology – just look at their contributions to the global field (I believe there are currently 16 Nobel Prize winners from Japan in the fields of physics, chemistry and medicine).”

This beautiful blog post is about the marriage of science and religion and how they can both be good for the soul.

Namaste,
