Sunday morning, December 16, at ARBORG UNITARIAN CHURCH, 11:00 a.m. – GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS YET TO COME – In many ways, Charles Dickens was one of the primary inventors of the modern celebration of Christmas, and the celebration he helped fashion is rich in sentiment and family traditions. But the Yuletide is an evolving celebration and, just as surely as it has changed over the century, it will continue to unfold in new and surprising ways.
Sunday evening, December 16, at GIMLI UNITARIAN CHURCH, 7:00 p.m. – AROUND THE SACRED BOUGHS – As we gather 'round the sacred boughs this year, whether real or synthetic, large or small, inside of out, decorated with ornaments or glistening only with snow—wherever we may find ourselves and whatever form our trees take—let us remember that what makes these boughs sacred is what happens around them. Join us for a celebration of candelight and carols as we enter the Yuletide. All are welcome.
