Festival of Lights 2021

Sunday, November 28 marks the beginning of our Festival of Lights series at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Cleveland, which will culminate on Christmas Eve. We’ll look at some of the things we might do to shine more fully in the world around us. And curiously, it’s often the same things that allow us to receive the light of joy and hope into our lives.

During the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, we’ll explore themes common to Diwali, Hanukkah, Yule, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and the abundance of religious traditions human beings have created. We’ll begin with a focus on forgiveness, followed by a reflection on the value of gratitude. Mike Carney will lead a service about creativity and finding light in unexpected places. Then, we’ll consider how we might shine light with one another in unity.
