Water Ceremony: Sept 3!

On Sunday, September 3, at 11 am, Rev. Maureen leads our annual Water Ceremony -- an ingathering, with an all ages service celebrating the blessings and challenges of water, for our lives and for the planet.

Please bring a small container of water that symbolizes a place or a water-related issue that is meaningful to you. Not likely to remember? Not to worry - pitchers of water will be available so you can pour some into the common bowl and hold a memory of something important in your heart. Following the service, we'll take the shared waters to the Paul & Ginny Bird Memory Garden, as we connect with those UUFG members and loved ones who are no longer with us.

Singing Meditation

Second and Fourth Wednesdays

7:30 PM to 8:30 PM in the Choir Room -- Starts Wednesday, September 13

Singing Meditation is a form of worship that alternates repetitive singing of short, simple, interfaith songs with periods of undirected silence.

Singing meditation involves singing chants, rounds, and other simple songs repetitively, until the songs sink deeply into your heart. Songs are alternated with undirected intervals of meditative silence. Group members do not need to have a strong singing voice or musical skills to participate and fully enjoy Singing Meditation.

This event is open to the public.
