Blessed Yule Evening with UUFM

Celebrate Yule with songs and guided meditation.

Friday, December 22 at 6 pm at the UUFM (Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown).  Our theme is coming out of the dark and welcoming back the light.

We ask that participants bring with them a story of the darkness, whether it be a literal story about something memorable that happened in the dark, or perhaps metaphorically of coming out of a physical or emotional darkness, which they will be asked to share as part of the ritual.  Afterwards, we plan a potluck meal, so please bring something yummy to share.  We will have traditional Yule foods as well as wassail.

The fellowship is located at 429 Warrick Avenue, Morgantown, WV.  Hope to see you there.

Season’s Blessings,

The Dangers of a Single Story

The Nigerian story teller, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, explains in this video how stories give us different views of the world. With humor, grace, and personal anecdotes, she illustrates that the single story creates incomplete stereotypes which makes people lives a flat experience.

I believe that listening to multiple stories we are able to increase the dignity of others.

Namaste,
