“Gratitude, Hope and Letting Go” with Cindy Ericksen

Let’s gather together virtually and/or in person to celebrate gratitude, hope and letting go. Following a short service via Zoom you will have a chance to note on special cards something you are grateful for in 2021 and what your hopes are for 2022. You can also choose to write down something you want to let go of from the past and release it by burning it. If you would like to come to the fellowship to do this, special cards and burning paper will be available in the refreshment area for an hour after the zoom service.  After writing your thoughts you may get a hot drink and a treat.  And then go out to the parking lot to burn what you want to let go in a fire pit, while socializing with other UUs. Masks will be required if you choose to come to the building.

If you prefer doing this at home, packets of the cards and burning paper are currently available for pickup in the purple bin in the back of the building.
