December 17: Mother and Sun
Rev. Marsh Agobert, Worship Leader
This is the season in which many committed Christians celebrate a famous mother and son combination that is certainly more popular than the secular Mother’s Day. We’ll take a quick peek into the universality of this relationship and how it shapes our world. This may yield a different perspective; one tempered by eons of experience.
December 24 (10:30 AM): Tidings of Comfort, Joys, and Concerns
Amanda Weatherspoon, M. Div., Guest Worship Leader
This season is a time of reflection. It asks us to reflect upon our lives — taking stock and paying attention to the forces of power and spirit moving in and among us. Join us as we take inventory of this full year and our full selves; remembering, celebrating, and committing to move forward together in love.
December 24 (5:00 PM) Christmas Eve Evening Service:
Doertlis Schultze-Allen and Holly Harwood, Lay Worship Leaders
Celebrate the season with us! The children will present a Christmas pageant that tells the story of Christmas from the perspective of the wives of the three wise men. We’ll share music, cheer, and fellowship…and rumor has it that Mrs. Claus may join us!
December 31: Celebrating KWANZAA: Growing in Community
A service developed and shared by BFUU members and friends of African heritage
“Traditionally, the calendars of African countries were filled with festivals that celebrated all important events. Harvest festivals usually began in late December and continued for seven or eight days until the first day of the new year, with each day having a special meaning attached to it. The villages glorified the first fruits of the harvest with dancing and feasting. KWANZAA builds on the power of culture and roots to plant seed today for the harvest of tomorrow.” (Dorothy Winbush Riley)
