On Sunday, Oct. 3, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hold its annual water communion service, “A Gathering of the Waters,” led by DeAnna Hoyle.
Hoyle points out ,“This tradition was created by UUs for UUs, and is practiced by many Unitarian Universalist churches as they gather in the fall.”
Those attending are asked to bring a small amount of water from a place they either traveled to this summer or is symbolic of something that touched their lives this past season. We will honor our individual journeys and the joy of coming together.
The children and youth will participate and help lead the service as our waters are joined in loving community. All are welcome to share in this special service of stories, singing and sharing.
The Pagosah UU Fellowship may be small in numbers but it is big in terms of its social conscience, and that fact was acknowledged last Sunday by its receiving the national Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) award. This honor is in recognition for the large number of its members who are also members of UUSC and contribute to the UUSC mission of “Creating Justice” in the world.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
