Winter Solstice/Yule Service

  • Dec 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • UU Church of Haverhill

Join members and friends of the congregation for a special service as we welcome back the Sun, in observance of the Winter Solstice. The Yule season is full of magic, much of it focusing on rebirth and renewal, as the Sun makes its way back to the earth and the days start to get longer. All ages are invited and participants are encouraged to bring snacks for a brief social following the service which will be held at the UU Church of Haverhill, 16 Ashland St, Haverhill Ma. Sponsored by the MoonPool coven.

There will be no class on Dec 15th due to the other scheduled activities this month.

    I know I have come across this symbol before, but not sure where or when, could have been in a book, on the web or somewhere on a hike. But I know I have seen this. I will dig around to see if I can find out what it means (if anything). Sometimes my brain will store random things for no apparent reason and then I will come across it again and it will drive me crazy like playing a game of memory with myself. If I find anything I will post it up and let you know.

    OK boys and girls. Depending on the conditions of a particular dirt road I am hoping to bring someone to a cave at Pawtuckaway State Park. I have been there a few times before; it's near the top of a mountain. You enter the cave and then there is a large slit in the floor that drops straight down into the earth for about 12 feet; making something like a deep corridor. At the end of this corridor is a (modern) carving in one of the walls: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/1001752_10200361871518524_1983425591_n.jpg

    Does anyone recognize this as a known symbol of the Goddess or is this something that someone just made up? Exiting this cave feels like you are emerging reborn from the womb of the earth, which opens up to reveal the world around and below where you are standing with a great view. I woke up at 3:30 this morning, realizing that today is the solstice and begins a new cycle of longer days and a promise of new beginnings and rebirth; pretty heady stuff.

    Would love to attend but it's a bit far for me to go during a week night. :(
    Hope everyone has a great time.

    Would love to connect with folks closer to Maine. But in good weather I'll venture down to MA.
