Solstice, or Litha means a stopping or standing still of the sun. It is the longest day of the year and the time when the sun is at its maximum elevation. This is also a time to celebrate growth and life for those who see balance in the world and are deeply aware of the ongoing shifting of the seasons. It is also time to acknowledge that the sun will now begin to decline once more towards winter.
We invite those of you who are interested to participate. We hold the ritual promptly at 6pm, in hybrid format (in-person/Zoom). There will be no potluck.
We meet at 10:30am to allow us to join the GA worship service at 12:30pm!
This orientation is geared to newcomers, visitors, and those seeking to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and this UU fellowship. It is offered every month both in person in the fellowship hall and via Zoom, typically on the last Sunday at 12:30pm, but at 10:30am this month. Sessions run approximately an hour and a half.

The Joyful Noise Choir was invited to participate in CMU’s Juneteenth Celebration on Friday, June 17. The choir performed “Give Light” based on the words of Ella Baker, a leader in the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s, and the audience joined in singing the last verse.
Immediately following the service this Sunday, June 19, Jim Dealing and Dave Macleod invite you to join a discussion session either in-person or via Zoom to gather input from our congregation. They will provide information about an important bylaw proposal and a challenge to the process of nominations for the UUA Board that they will be voting on as our delegates.
