November 30: -- The Practice of Gratitude - Revs. Heather and Cathy Rion Starr - Many of us have ways that we practice grounding ourselves in gratitude -- how have those practices helped us? What does grounding ourselves in gratitude do for and to us? We will then share in a congregational gratitude-sharing ritual.

Everyone is invited to bring a "harvest" item of some kind -- an apple, a potato, a pomegranate -- to place on the altar table before the service. Everyone will then be invited to share aloud some one thing for which you are grateful and to take home something from the collective abundance that you did not bring. There will be plenty of apples in case you forget -- don't worry about it! Come join us in this service of sharing and thankfulness.

Worship Associate: Ann LaPorte-Bryan

December 7 – The December Dilemma  - Rev. Cathy Rion Starr -
The “holiday” season we are entering evokes feelings from love to disgust to indifference, but it’s impossible to avoid in our culture. Christmas is an important Christian holiday, yet many UUs don’t identify as Christian.  How do we stay grounded during this frenetic season? As we enter the darkest days of the year, what meaning will you make of it this year?

Worship Associate: Margaret Leicach

December 14 – The Strings of Expectation - Rev. Heather Rion Starr - As we near the turning of the year, amidst the Christian season of Advent and anticipation, we will savor time together reflecting on our past, on what we carry with us, and how we can best prepare ourselves for new chapters in our lives, our communities, and our world.

Worship Associate: Laurie Kelliher
