CUUPs Mabon Ritual and Potluck (Stone Soup & Pebble Pie)

September 23 @ 5:15 pm - 8:00 pm

As day and night sit as equals, the Owl Moon Covenant of UU Pagans (CUUPS) will honor the ever-shifting balance of sacrifice and abundance in our lives. We’ll begin with a potluck feast at 5:30, after which we will enter sacred space to explore this place of balance in our own lives. What are we harvesting this year? What sacrifices had to be made to manifest this abundance, and how can we honor them? And what must we now cut away to preserve (or create) the balance that will support next year’s growth? What will we carry forward to plant again in the spring? The cycle of growth, harvest, and renewal marches on.
