Winter Solstice - "Sharing the Light" - At City Hall
As Edmonton decorates the heart of its centre, our wonderful northern community sheds sparkling light & colour, a welcome relief from the winter darkness, cold & isolation. Westwood Unitarian complements Edmonton's brightest illuminations, hosting a family friendly Solstice service celebrating the turning of the season & renewing our connections & compassion with each other & the earth.
This one hour downtown gathering led by Reverend Anne Barker features music & drama, participation & ritual. We will call the directions, hear solstice stories, sing & chant. Let us recognize the turn of darkness into light, allow our fears to reach for hope, surrender our sadness to joy & renew our faith in the cycle of life. The Westwood choir Harmonia will provide music & harmony.
All are welcome to share in an afternoon indoor ceremony appreciating the gifts of the dark & rejoicing in the return of longer days.
