Lessons from Kwanzaa Candles

Dan Teslow. This is the time of the year when Kwanzaa comes, followed closely by the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The message spoken quietly in African American homes at Kwanzaa is shouted to the world two weeks later at the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Even if we are not African American, there is a lot that the candles of Kwanzaa have to teach us.

New Year's Eve Game Night & Possible Sleepover

Folks have been asking if we are going to have a New Year’s Eve game night again this year with a sleep over. Starting Sunday, most folks will see the New Year in with gaming and head home. We will be asking anyone who wants to stay the night to RSVP and if we have a reasonable number, we will ask folks to bring sleeping gear to sleep on the floor of Celebration Hall and we will have breakfast and coffee Monday morning and play some more games.

Fire Communion

Steve Bowling. On or near the first Sunday in January, many Unitarian Universalist congregations hold a ritual to bid farewell to the old year, and to release it. In the words of Rev. Elizabeth Harding, "The fire communion separates the end of the year from the beginning, helping us to put in perspective the joys and sorrows, the changes and transitions, the ups and downs of the year. It's a half-way point in our church year, but a celebration of the outside calendar’s year’s end and year’s beginning." In a ceremony of the burning bowl, people are invited to write down write down words, or a phrase, to sum up what they wish to release before entering the new year. They then come forward to burn that piece of paper.
