The Water Communion was first celebrated at a Unitarian Universalist worship service in the 1980s. Many UU congregations now hold a Water Communion once a year, often at the beginning of the new church year, honoring our differences as well as reminding us of all that connects us to one another and to our communities. It is a time to celebrate new beginnings, with the beginning of the church year, bringing back members and friends young and old from summer travels. Please bring with you to this special service a bit of water representing who you are or where you have been—perhaps water from a mountain stream, from summer travels, from your garden hose, or from a place that is sacred to you.
This month's theme: Growth
Speaker: Rev. Ilene Kaur Tompkins-Gillispie
