Judson Solstice Service
Saturday, December 21, 2013
Judson Memorial Church (Meeting Room)
Join us for a unique service built around the general principle of "darkness to light." This is not a typical liturgy, but rather an experience that begins with darkness, silence, and ambient music, then gradually incorporates candles, light, stories, music and singing, and community celebration.
Darkness is never something to fear, and we'll draw on sacred traditions embracing the idea that darkness and light are two sides of the same coin...a cycle constantly propelling us forward into new territory. There will be live music performances, traditional solstice folktales from various cultures, and an invitation to participate if you so choose. Join us for a journey that embraces the power of hearth, tradition, history, roots, mirth and the elements. We'll also have hot beverages, light snacks and good old fashioned pagan holiday cheer!
Second Helpings are lay-led activities giving extra ways of being in
community. Feed your soul this fall by doing something extra with
other Judson folks. Contact bethene.trexel (at) gmail.com to list
your ideas for service, learning, fun, whatever.
