Coming Home Like Rivers to the Sea

Join us as we gather for our annual water ceremony to welcome another year together and recommit ourselves to our shared spiritual journeys and ministries. The Water Ceremony ritual was created in 1980 by two Unitarian Universalist women—Carolyn McDade and Lucile Schuck Longview. They considered water as more than simply a metaphor; That water is elemental and primary, calling forth feelings of awe and reverence. Today, this ritual speaks to our connectedness to one another, to the totality of life, and our commitment to environmental justice. We believe that Water is Life and choose water as a symbol of our solidarity with communities struggling to have access to clean water. You are invited to bring water from your favorite place (including your kitchen sink) for our water ritual.
