June 16 Circle Service: Deep Roots – Rev. Dr. Elli Elliott
Circle Services will start this summer on the third Sunday of each month. We’ll gather in a circle in our fellowship hall for an informal service of sharing around the topic of the month. Bring a reading or a song or a story or a joke or an artwork or even a dance to share related to the topic. We’ll include activities that invite children’s participation, too. We’ll light our chalice, sing some songs, listen to and appreciate one another’s contributions, light our candles to lift up joys and sorrows, pass the basket, extinguish the chalice, and sing our closing song.
These services intend to establish an enlivening and inclusive BUUF group life-deepening practice that:
- Nurtures our individual reflection on our life journeys and current challenges
- Connects us more deeply with one another as a BUUF community, and
- Strengthens us for the challenges we face as we live out and advocate for our UU values.
