December 2019

Throughout life, we experience the loss of people, places, and things. We will reflect on our losses and discover how loss can lead to greater wholeness and holiness.

This ecumenical service will be held to honor family and friends who have died. We are planning to honor our deceased loved ones by displaying a personalized ornament on a tree. The service is a living memorial and provides an opportunity for you and your family to experience a new and meaningful ritual. During this service you will be presented with the ornament to take and place in your home during the holiday season.

Moms, daughters, and other loved ones of all ages are invited to join us for this annual tea gathering. Wear your favorite holiday dresses, and girls, bring your dolls, too! We will be presenting tea, hot chocolate, canapés, and holiday desserts on the Mound’s Heritage Collection of porcelain plates and silver services. Nativities from around the world will be available for viewing in our Art Gallery.
Registration will not start until September 1, 2019.

Join us in honoring the longest night and shortest day of the year through song and ritual, celebration and contemplation. Most of this session will take place indoors, though we'll have a small fire outdoors, as well as opportunity for contemplative time outdoors. All are welcome to this ecumenical gathering.
