Many Unitarian Universalist congregations hold a ritual to bid farewell to the old year, and to release it.
In the words of UU 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.”
At the end of such a significant year as 2020 was, it seems very appropriate that 2U have a Fire Communion service.
Please bring a scrap of paper, a fire proof container such as a pan or bowl, a candle and matches or a lighter when you come to 2U church on this morning!
