Celebration of the Autumn Equinox

Join us for this In-Person Worship Service

As the sun begins to sink lower in the sky and the night becomes chilly and dark, before we even notice the changing of colors with our eyes, our senses tell us that the energy of summer has come to an end in the northern half of the world. The Autumn Equinox is a meaningful time of year to honor the harvest and celebrate in community with others whether that be a “real” harvest of the things planted in your garden or the harvest of efforts and intentions for your life path that you set earlier in the year. The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature, and within this cycle many ancient cultures perceived a powerful deeper message for humanity. Indigenous cultures recognized earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; often represented as the Wheel of the Year – the cycle of nature and a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves.

You are invited to celebrate the Turning of the Wheel with the Earthlings in an Outdoor Circle on the east lawn at the back of the Unity Campus at 2:00 pm. Please bring a folding chair, your water bottle, a cloth napkin, and a snack to share. Finger foods native to the Americas are requested (such as Popcorn, Chocolate, Bison jerky, Bananas, Tomatoes, Pumpkin cookies, dried Cranberries, Sweet Potato chips, Peanuts, etc) In case of rain, the Circle will be held in the Fellowship Hall. This celebration is open to everyone of all ages, colors and faiths! With focus on what we Earthlings have in common, we’ll be singing, drumming, listening, meandering in Nature, and speaking from our hearts. If you need information, please contact Karla Crescenta at banksthefire@gmail.com

This Circle will be in person only.
