This year, in a Water Communion, we’ll emphasize the power in each drop of water as it combines with other drops to replenish the earth. Bring a small sample of water from a source that is important to you, or use the water we’ll provide Sunday. Talk briefly about the significance of that water for you, or add yours to the whole in a silent offering.
10:50 a.m. Children’s Religious Education. The kids join us for the first part of the service, which includes a children’s story, they adjourn to a classroom for activities. This week they’ll focus on the First Principle of Unitarian Universalism.
