Winter Solstice Ceremony December 20, 2014
Have you ever felt called to come together in ceremony to give thanks for the many beautiful aspects of the natural world and to formally recognize entering back into the time of increasing light? If so, you are invited to be part of a peaceful Winter Solstice Ceremony at Dayspring Church to be held the day before Winter Solstice. We will meet at the Farmhouse at 6:45pm and then walk in silence through the grass and forest to the hill-top fire circle. Once there, we will share in a time of silence, prayer of gratitude, and a voluntary smudging ceremony; all followed by cookies and cider to celebrate. Children are very welcome. For questions or to let us know you’ll be coming (so I know how many cookies to bring), please contact: wendy.duke@comcast.net Open the contact tab for directions and public transportation info.

For Reflection

 

Creator God, You have called us to be keepers of your Earth; through greed, we have created an economy that destroys the web of life. We have changed our climate and drown in despair. Let oceans of justice flow, may we learn to sustain and renew the life of our Mother Earth. We pray for our leaders, custodians of Mother Earth. May they negotiate with wisdom and fairness, may they act with compassion and courage, and lead us in the path of justice for the sake of our children and our children's children.

~ Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
