December 19’s service will be a celebration of Winter Solstice, a pagan tradition grounded in a respect and reverence for the natural world. Hearing from several voices, we will cast a circle honoring the four directions as we embrace the coming darkness and prepare for winter’s rest. The longest night of the year and season of winter are an important time of reflection, rest, and renewal, let us welcome it.
Carol Gable has been a UU celebrating Solstice for almost 30 years, beginning in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, then later Vermont and New York. She currently lives in Utica and serves as the Associate VP for Finance at Hamilton College and President of the Board for UU Utica.
