Gratitude and Communion
The Reverend Emily Melcher
Our annual Thanksgiving service adapts traditional liturgies and rituals in light of Unitarian Universalism. The sharing of bread and water invite awareness of the bounty and limits of our planet; bind us in kinship with all humankind; and remind us of life’s twin necessities: receiving and giving, Our minister and members of the congregation will share reflections on gratitude for the gift of life, the bounty of Earth, and our commitment to a world of peace, justice and love.
