UU Fellowship to Host ‘Water Communion’

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship invites you to attend a service titled “Water Communion,” with Devina Babayon, this Sunday, September 10.

The Water Communion, sometimes called the Water Ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship service in the 1980s. Many UU congregations now hold a Water Communion once a year, at the beginning of the new church year (September).

Attendees bring to the service a small amount of water from (or to represent) a place that is special to them. During the appointed time in the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, the person who brought it tells why this water is special to them. The combined water is symbolic of a shared faith coming from many different sources. It will be used to water a living plant whose bounty will be shared with the Fellowship at Thanksgiving.

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a caring, inclusive fellowship dedicated to spiritual growth, justice and serving the needs of our larger community. As a Welcoming Congregation, we invite everyone to share in our faith community. We cherish diversity and foster a safe environment for all.

Enjoy refreshments and conversation after services, which are held Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in Unit B-15 of the Greenbriar Plaza. From North Pagosa Boulevard, turn onto Park Avenue, then turn into the Greenbriar Plaza, drive to the east side of the parking lot and look for the Unitarian Universalist sign, facing north.
