Weekly Notices 4 Sep 2016
Sunday 4th September (11am)
Guest Preacher Ingrid Tavkar
‘Gathering of the Waters’
This service, sometimes also called the ‘Water Ceremony’, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist congregation in the 1980s. Members bring to Sunday worship service a small amount of water from places that is special to them. During the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. The combined water is symbolic of our shared Unitarian faith coming from many different sources.
