The Winter Solstice is deeply rooted in our ancient history, signifying the return of the sun and a reverence for nature. Elements and symbols of the Winter Solstice overlap and recur in almost every known religion.
Come celebrate the connection between the Winter Solstice and the coming of Jesus. You will experience stories of solstice rituals, poems, songs, dances and decor and how they were adapted for the Christmas Season. We will take a candlelight prayer walk on the labyrinth, and enjoy seasonal refreshments. Join us!
Date & Time: Sat., Dec. 21, from 5:30 to 7pm
