CUUPS – Nature-Based Spirituality Group: last Wednesday, 12:30-1:30 pm
We honor the balance of masculine and feminine within ourselves, nature, and our spirituality while fostering that which we each find meaningful. We meet at the time of the full moon and around other major festivals as celebrated within many traditions, such as the Solstice and those that draw from Celtic tradition. All are welcome in our circle! We are also an official CUUPS Chapter – Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. For more information about CUUPS, please visit the national website: www.cuups.org.
Peacemakers Needleworkers: Thursdays, 1:30-3:30 pm
We think we solve the problems of the world while piecing quilts—we call ourselves “Peacemakers!” We usually have a quilt project in progress, but others stop by with knitting and needlework. We go on an outing each year, visiting quilt shops. New participants are welcome anytime!
