Threshold Week 5: Threshold of Summer

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home. 

At Church:

We discovered the Threshold of spring and summer and joy supported by 7th UU Principle. We believe in caring for our planet earth and every living thing that shares it with us. 

Morning Time: 

Consider this thought by John Stienbeck

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

Weekly Chalice Lighting:

In faith, together, we light this small scrap of light,

symbol of Grandfather Sun’s enormous power,

whose energy burns so brightly In these days of deep Summer,

catapulting the leaves and vines,

vegetables, flowers and fruits to astonishing size, lengths and heights,

spilling over the tops of cages, walls and trellises,

delighting and nourishing all beings.

We bask in the warmth and the heat of these days,

with lightened hearts and quickened senses,

in gratitude and in faith.
