Celebrate the return of the Sun!
This evening at 7PM, the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore celebrates the season with a Winter Solstice Ritual to which you are all invited. My husband and I will be turning the wheel of the year to usher in winter and welcome the return of the Light of the World.
"Be still. Honor the dark. Light the New Year fire. Turn the Wheel of the Year. Enjoy songs, poetry, drama, ritual. Taste the sweetness of life. Bless the newborn babes. Greet the returning Sun."
This ritual is taken, in part from In Nature's Honor: Myths and Rituals Celebrating the Earth
by Patricia Montley, whose op-ed pieces on seasonal holidays have appeared in The Baltimore Sun
If your internet connection is better than mine, you can watch a clip of Pat on WJZ from last week for a taste of what to expect: http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2014/12/16/on-time-december-14-2014/
Happy Holidays! Come on out if you're free this evening. :-)#Winter #Solstice #Baltimore #WinterSolstice #UU
