Ingathering & Water Ceremony

Ingathering & Water Ceremony

In this traditional UUCC Ingathering service — including a water ceremony — we will celebrate the beautiful diversity of this spiritual community and honor the sacred nature of water, its healing and destructive powers, and the inequities around the U.S. and the world in accessing clean, healthy water.

Bring a bit of water from a sacred source for the ceremony, bring a potluck dish (if possible) to share, and plan to join other congregants for a luncheon following the worship service!
