Special Events at Westwood
Each December 21, we celebrate the darkest day of the year, the longest night, the return of the sun. This is an opportunity to reflect on darkness and light in our lives, and to share the light with each other.
In June, we usually have a joyful celebration with song and dance to mark the beginning of summer and longest day of the year.
Flower communions are a long standing Unitarian tradition. By exchanging flowers, we show our willingness to walk together in our search for truth, disregarding all that might divide us. Each person takes home a flower brought by someone else - thus symbolizing and celebrating our community.
In the first regular service after the summer break (September), we share stories of our summer experiences and reconnect for the coming year.
