Holiness is the life of spontaneity and self abandonment with humor, which includes the wisdom of serpents as well as the gentleness of doves, because humor is nothing other than perfect self-awareness. It is the delighted self recognition of one's own absurdity, and a loving cynicism with respect to one's own pretensions . .Humor is the transformation of anxiety into laughter: the same trembling, but with a different meaning.

The First universalist Church of Pittsfield is excited to host the Annual Multi-Congregational Water Ceremony Service with Dexter and Sangerville, led by Rev. Julianne Bousquet. To prepare for this special service we collect water throughout the year [or from the faucet if you choose] to represent where we are and where we have been. Some of the contributions will be made with stories given by the congregation concerning the meaningfulness of this particular water offering. All these stories, spoken and unspoken, are melded together bringing us closer as a congregation and community. The 7th principle of Unitarian Universalism is to respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part and our communal water is a symbol of this.
Please join us for this endearing tradition. Bring your water and your stories to share. All are welcome.
Service begins at 9:45 am, please plan to stay for a potluck lunch following the service.
