we may be secure enough, mature enough to find a language of reverence,
a language that can acknowledge the presence of the holy in our lives.”

Blazing Star Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans
At the Fall Equinox, we begin to descend into the dark time of year. The dark can be scary, but facing it with confidence helps us find power in ourselves. There are few experiences more thrilling, more transformative, than facing a challenge and overcoming it. At our Mabon ritual this year, we shall honor each others’ work in our world and grant each other the strength needed to face the challenges that are ahead of us, as we prepare for our annual descent into the dark half of the year.
We will gather at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate Mabon. Our ritual will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. with a potluck to follow the ceremony. The potluck will conclude at 8:00 p.m. Please wear Fall colors to this event, or anything with grapes, vines, or a wine theme. Blessed be!
Jayson Turner, CUUPS Coordinator

Gearing up for the Silent Auction
Start thinking about what unique services you can offer: teach, bake, host, create, rake. Look at some treasures in your house you no longer need, but somebody else would love to have. Consider donating them. We will also need volunteers to help with the event (setting up, taking down, greeting, cashiers, etc). For more ideas, see this list.
In the next two weeks you will be contacted by phone or email. Then you can let us know how you want to be involved. For more information contact Gisela Moffit, Vicki Chessin or Norma Bailey.
