In a unique UU ritual, we'll gather the waters of our community, whether from your summer travel, a token from our overflowing river, the backyard hose, or kitchen faucet; these waters receive the blessing of all of us and serve as our communal holy water for the year. Please bring a small container of your water for the ritual. Children and families worship together.

Sara LaWall; Patricia Heeb, Celebrant Essential questions are those questions which have no exact answer but which stimulate our thinking and seep into our spiritual lives. These questions are meant to be generative, to spark curiosity, exploration and stimulate both our thinking and our spiritual lives. Often used as an educational strategy, essential questions are also the hallmark of religion. This year, we have chosen one essential question to explore together as a whole community. This question will guide our worship themes and work of the church, we hope it will spark something new in you too—Come explore with us.
