The Miracle of Light

As the approaching winter spreads its blanket of darkness over us, when natural light is in limited supply, we gather as an intergenerational community to weave together stories from Christian, Pagan, and Native American traditions, and our own Unitarian Universalism. Join us as we kindle the holiday lights of faith, hope, and love.
