**No Winter Solstice Evening Service this year**

**FRIENDLY REMINDER: Westwood is taking a break this year, and not hosting a Winter Solstice Evening Service on December 21. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you next year.**

A “Winter Solstice Home Ritual Guide” – for folks who might want help to mark the occasion at home – will be available to pick up at Westwood. It is an all ages, simple service outline for you and your loved ones to use as you wish. You can pick up a copy at Westwood on Sunday mornings: November 25, December 2, 9 or 16. Whether you celebrate at home, or take in other events around town, we hope you take the opportunity to mark December 21, Winter Solstice, in a way that warms your heart.
