Sunday August 28th, 2016 - Service Leader: Karyl Lee

The Water Communion, also sometimes called Water Ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship service in the 1980s. Many UU congregations now hold a Water Communion once a year.

Members bring to the service a small amount of water from a place that is special to them. During the appointed time in the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, the person who brought it tel…

Rev. Mary Grigolia“Summer Poetry Reflections, or, Need More Rumi?”

I invite you to join me for three poetry reflections as Sunday morning services: July 10, July 24 and August 14, reflecting on: Who we are (as individuals, as a spiritual community, as a religious movement) to the Mystery, to each other? How does Life speak (or dance or hold presence) through us? On July 10, bring a favorite poem from Rumi. On July 24, a short reading from Mary Oliver. On Aug 14, a favorite piece from a different poet (perhaps yourself).

 

"Baby Watch"

Whether or not we ever birth a baby, we are all
on Baby-Watch. Again and again. There is usually something coming to birth within us, in our communities, in our work, friendship and family circles.

From August 15 through September 7, I'll be on Baby-Watch in Boston, supporting my daughter-in-law Alison and son Colin, welcoming their first child.

Baby-watch is transformative.

Research exploring infant mortality and maternal well-being found surprising statistics among Hispanic families living in poverty. Their well-being was as high as any group. Because they practice Baby-Watch! When a new baby arrives, so does support staff (frequently a grandmother) to care, cook, and clean; to manage the physical, emotional, and spiritual chaos of creation.

Baby-Watch is like spiritual community: Being present with kindness. Caring for each other's needs. Staying present and connected when things get messy. Cleaning up messes. Respecting boundaries. Feeding each other. Learning each other's emotional language. Reflecting feelings and what needs saying. For new parents, How exciting! You've never done this before. How scary. You're not alone. You can do it.

In our congregation we are in a steady state of Baby-Watch, welcoming something new coming to birth, calling ourselves into the present, learning from yesterday's best practices while welcoming that which is coming to birth.

How exciting! We've never done this before. How scary. We're not alone. We can do it!
