Speaker: Patrick Dubois

Fire Communion

In between the closing of the old year and the unfurling of the new, we come together in a ritual of reflection, letting go, and looking forward.

Fire Communion is an opportunity to cast the emotional baggage of the old year into the flames and, lighter in spirit, set our intentions for the year to come.

This year, Mary Bennett will offer some reflections on the element of fire in our lives.

Patrick Dubois will treat us to music.

Wendy Bryan will lead the ritual of burning rosemary sprigs in our cauldron of transformation.

This is the 8th day of Hanukkah and we will light a menorrah – Sheila Resels.

People silently toss their sprig into the flames.Following the service there will be a sharing circle (“covenant group”) in Hewett Hall where you will be invited to share your comments if you so wish.
