March 10: “Eostre, the Origins of the Bunny and Egg and the Beginning of Summer”

Presenter: Guy Hopkins
Easter Ostara_by_Johannes_Gehrts“It is a day of balance, as the day and night hours are approximately the same length. A season that brings fertility and growth, marking our passage into the spring season and into summer. We begin to notice the hours of light getting longer, and the heat of the sun is warmer.

Trees are waking, animals are stirring in their dens and the quickening of the Earth herself, is felt strongly. All things are wanting to take stride, leap about and play. So, we look at Eostre or Ostara to find the origins of the bunny and egg and the beginning of summer.”

 

Unitarian-Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on our spiritual journeys.

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 or on the street in front or the side of the building. Child care is available.
