This is my favorite season: Fall moving to Winter. We nestle in and come closer for warmth with our family and friends.
At OCUUC, we have a number of holiday traditions. Some are newer than others. First, we have the Winter Solstice Ritual. If you can, I encourage you to come to the evening service. There is something about all the candle light glowing in the darkness. It is a beautiful and moving service.
Then, more traditionally, we have the Christmas Eve service. It starts with a cookie eating feast with spiced cider made by our own Rev. Dr. Karen Stoyanoff. Bring some cookies and enjoy the warmth of community. After that is storytime for the children, followed by a visit from a special someone in a red suit…and our visitor has a REAL white beard!
This year’s evening service will be filled with music. Come and participate in the singing and joy. During this service, the offering is to replenish the minister’s discretionary fund for the coming year. This year was challenging for many of our members. If you can at all help the minister, please bring what you can to share with those in need.
Love and Light,
