The Winter Solstice is a time of paradox. The darkness reaches its apex, yet the return to light has yet to begin. The earth is closest to the sun at this time of the year, yet in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the coldest time of year. The pines stay green while life around them goes dormant.
On Wednesday, Dec. 21, Jamie Evanini will lead 8 Sacred Circles’ celebration of the Winter Solstice at UUCWC, at which we will explore the significance of paradoxes in our own lives. “I have felt for a long time that if you look for where the paradox is, you find where the meaning is,” says Jamie. We hope you’ll join us for an inspirational gathering where we find special meaning in our shared appreciation of ancient traditions.
Doors open at 7:00, with our ritual beginning at 7:30. A brief orientation for newcomers is offered beforehand. If possible, kindly bring a snack to share in fellowship afterward. For more information, please contact Mike or Heidi Dalzell or Penny Gardner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
