As we arrive at the threshold of a new year, come and join us on Sunday, January 7th at 10am as we explore what “Epiphany For Everyone” might mean. It could mean welcoming a search and finding ourselves in a new place guided by an unexpected vision, reflecting on our individual and collective histories and what it can mean to live into our values. In the cold, finding warmth in social action, compassion; and letting our vision lead us to new ideas, new places. There is plenty to be alert to and concerned about, and somehow these very cold temperatures can eclipse warmth and bring up real concerns about survival for our most vulnerable neighbors, even ourselves. How do we foster inner warmth and connection that can help us ride out this current winter climate? Is there an element of Epiphany for each of us - an ancient story of a star guiding wise men to a child of humble birth that would herald a new era with more compassion for the vulnerable and discouraged? Coming together to share our voices, our ideas can keep our communities strong and enable us to help warm each other by a kind word and support we can lend. So may we bundle ourselves up with hot tea, good books, dear friends and other warming elements in this cold winter season.
Let us craft our vision and let it guide our living in this new year together. Join a caring community of open hearts and minds on Sunday, Jan. 7th at 10am at Barrett Hall in Strafford (our winter home) as we explore this important time and embrace what the new year can bring.
Blessings, Rev. Telos, minister,
Universalist Society of Strafford.
