Comox Valley Unitarians present winter solstice

Comox Valley Unitarians present a multi-generational winter solstice this Sunday.

Comox Valley Unitarians present a multi-generational winter solstice this Sunday from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m.

With songs and an interactional play with our children, come journey into the darkness of the year, and come back with new energy and a renewed sense of possibilities and joy.

An adult winter solstice celebration with music, readings and meditation happens Dec. 21 from 7 to 8 p.m.

With special musical guests, the Mystic Valley Voices Choir, this non-denominational contemplative service is designed for adults, teenagers or older children who would enjoy such a service.

The word solstice literally means “sun standing still.” At the moment of the winter solstice, the path of the sun in the sky over the past six months has reached its furthest southern position and now turns northward. The sun returns and the days get longer.

It is no wonder then, that almost all traditions and ancient cultures have celebrated the return of the sun. At the same time, this solstice celebration celebrates the dark with the light.

The public is welcome at all Unitarian events. They meet the first and third Sunday of every month at 250 Beach Ave. (Comox United Church). The only “cost” is a free-will offering.

For more information, call 250-890-9262 or visit www.cvuf.ca.
