10:30 Service:
—Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Quiet Anticipation”                                                                                          In the Christian tradition, Advent is the act of waiting with quiet anticipation for a miraculous birth to light up the world. What are we waiting for during these long nights and short days of the winter season? What can we learn from the countercultural acts of stillness and patience as Christmas approaches

Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Reasons for the Season”     This service will be an experiment in which Rev Kathy invites you to participate. Between now and December 16th, please email her your fondest memories of Christmas, Hannukah, or Winter Holiday celebrations of the past.  Your memories should be in the form of short, anonymous phrases like, “making cookies with Grandma,” or “my mother’s latkes,” or “the year the cat toppled the tree.” Rev Kathy will share these memories in a holiday litany of cheer.

10:30 Service:
— Cliff Jackson, “Aphantasia: When the Mind’s Eye is Blind”                                                     The world changed for Cliff  when he found out he has Aphantasia— the inability to form mental images.  Recent research has revealed a continuum or wide variation among individuals in their ability to visualize familiar objects or people.  Cliff will share facts, findings and his own experiences related to Aphantasia.  He will explain the test and bell curve so that anyone who is interested can see where they fall on that continuum. He hopes to share new meaning to the UU phrase: ”We need not think alike to love alike.”
