This Sunday, our December Music Sunday, the First Unitarian Singers will present a program composed by Gwyneth Walker. Her compositions are enjoyed by performers and audiences alike for their energy, beauty, reverence, drama and humor. Among the pieces the First Unitarian Singers will perform are “To Everything There is a Season” and “All My Trials.”
Toward Resilience and Hope: Hiking, Illness and Life
Elizabeth Grover has been living with Parkinson's disease for over twenty years, but she has been hiking for over fifty years. This has given her time to reflect on some of the principles that guide hikers. These principles apply not only to hiking but to life in general and can encourage us through difficult situations and empower us in a way that promotes resilience and brings hope.
Please join us as we celebrate the winter solstice. A pagan tradition that is thousands of years old, the solstice marks the start of the solar year, the return of the light and the rebirth of the sun. Join us at 5:45 p.m. for dinner and a brief worship service featuring a parade of light, great music and celebration.
“It was Joy’s sixth Christmas, but it would be Sam’s first. Joy knew this year would surely be the worst.” Join us for an intergenerational service which pokes fun at a First Church tradition and honors the joys and sorrows that come with family.
Our Christmas Eve celebration will begin at 6 p.m. with a community sing of our favorite Christmas carols (including, of course, the Twelve Days of Christmas!) and transition into a contemplative service featuring even more music and stories that will conclude with us singing “Silent Night” by candlelight.
