Our theme for the month of December is Awe. To start the month, Rev. Gail Tapscott will address the ways our first UU source, which says we draw on transcendent mystery and wonder, can keep us focused on what really matters through the busy and stressful holiday season
It has been our tradition to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with a version of the old, old story, “Stone Soup,” followed by a follow-up luncheon and fellowship. Members of the congregation are asked to bring a salad, type of bread, or a dessert to share. The youth will be preparing the stone soup.
There are many versions of the Stone Soup fable. This year we will be using the story written by Marcia Brown in 1947 and put to music in 1987 by Carol Kaplan-Lyss and Sandi Becker in “Stone Soup – A 'Rock' Opera.”
