December 22: "The Three Faces of Yule." The tree joins the world above to the world below, but is itself of this world. We are all--like the symbolic tree--workers between the worlds, dancers in the void, mystic explorers of the miracle of the commonplace. Service Coordinated by CUUPS. Note: Four loaves will be needed for this service: oat bread with parsley, barley bread with sage, spelt bread with rosemary, and rye bread with thyme. If you would proffer a loaf (or Arrepas Solsticias) please contact Francis at (203) 562-0672 or otherwise.
December 29: “Now is the Caroling Season.” Enjoy songs and stories associated with joy and gratitude in a candle-lighting service with time for private holiday reflections as we listen to live and recorded music. Paul and Julia Raspe will lead us in this tradition between Christmas and the New Year. Julia and Paul Raspe, coordinators
