DECEMBER RE News

 

December is a time of memory. Holidays and rituals have their roots in old stories and traditions.  This year our Holiday Happening service will center on remembering and bringing to life the old, so we may see ancient truths in a new light.  You won’t want to miss our intergenerational service on December 16th! The service will be followed by merry-making, crafts, and treats.

This is also a time of opening our doors wide and sharing our welcome with those in need. Please take an ornament from our giving tree in the back of the worship room, and bring back a gift for a child and/or parent to place under the tree. Gifts will be collected through December 9th and distributed through the United Way of Rockland County’s “Hope for the Holidays” Program.

In addition, we continue our annual collection for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) through Guest at Your Table. This year’s focus- Justice at the Borders- supports the UUSC efforts to help those who are migrating from Central America in search of asylum in the United States. Boxes may be returned at the Christmas Eve service, or anytime through December 30th.

Wishing everyone a very happy holidays full of blessing and peace,     Terri
