We live in the Northwoods, an area known for its cold and icy winters, mosquitos the size of chickens, and a festival of apples. Yet there is something more, known to those who live in and love this region. It is a gift some have never experienced: silence. The Northwoods provides a cathedral-like quiet for contemplative practice. Is fly fishing a religion? Is staring at the lake a spiritual practice? What is the presence I sense in the company of old-growth trees? We will explore several Northwoods activities and take time to appreciate the subtle and powerful invitation to experience silence this spring and summer.
At this closing gathering of the service year, we will also take time to honor our high school and college graduates. Additionally, this service will include our annual Child Dedication and Flower Communion. Although we will not be physically together to share flowers, please have flowers near you during the service if possible. They can serve as an important connection to our past gatherings and might be used for a special purpose that Stacy will guide during the service.
Information on how to access the service can be found on the CUUF website
