Unitarians focus on being of good cheer Dec. 22

Published 6:46pm Wednesday, December 18, 2013

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176N at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 22.

The speaker will be the Rev. Sally Beth Shore, who will speak on the topic “Be of Good Cheer.”

This will be a holiday service and potluck.

“It is the darkest day of the year outside, the Winter Solstice, but individuals can kindle flames of light and warmth inside. Winter holidays don’t always help with this, but we can find opportunity in celebrating them even if we sometimes feel more like ‘bah humbug,’” Shore said. “The world needs our light and warmth. How do you create it in you and those around you at this time of year? We’ll have one opportunity in today’s service, with a readers’ theater production of ‘Van Amsterdam the Baker.’”

There will be a potluck lunch after the service. Participants are asked to bring a salad, casserole, dessert or other item to share with the congregation. Please bring your own tableware. The main course will be provided by the board.
