The Touchstones for January is Wintering. On January 1st, Bill Heavlin offers a homily entitled “Winter Nights: a Personal Reflection.” Bill recalls some moments of insight and resilience that flowed from stoking a warm hearth on a long winter night.
In this service, UUCC also presents a modified Burning Bowl Ritual, which symbolically ushers out the old year and brings forth the new one. This service encourages attendees to reflect on the joys and sorrows, the changes and transitions and the ups and downs of the past year. Everyone is invited to write paper that represent what they wish to let go of from 2022. One by one, these notes are to be dissolved as we celebrate the arrival of 2023.
The in-person service takes place at Odd Fellows Hall, 526 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, CA, 94019. Out of an abundance of caution, we require mask wearing for churchgoers throughout the service—with the exception of those actively speaking at the front of the room. If you are a first-time visitor, we ask for proof of vaccinations.
