December 3: Make of Yourself a Light

candlesIn the poem, “The Buddha’s Last Instruction,” by Mary Oliver, we learn it is possible to become something of inexplicable value when we make of ourselves a light: a light of hope, compassion, peace and joy, a light that brings healing by falling first upon our own story and then spreading out to all stories.

As we enter the Yuletide season, a celebration of warmth and light in many traditions, may we take time to consider, appreciate, welcome and open our hearts to light in all its forms.

 

Reminder for members:

We have a congregational meeting immediately following the service this Sunday to vote on next steps regarding the possibility of purchasing of a permanent home. 

 

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is usually available.
