We will also have a special “Blessing of the Backpacks” to include a chalice token from UUCL for any who wish to carry it with them as they journey forth. “Blessing of the Backpacks” is a growing trend In the UU world. There will be a token for your backpacks, bags, briefcases, or other containers for the everyday things you carry with you in your lives.
- A small container of water from a special place
- A backpack, purse, tote, briefcase to receive a special blessing token for the journey
- Favorite colored pencils or permanent markers
If you won’t be attending in person on Sunday or will be attending on Zoom, you’re invited to stop by the church (538 W Chestnut St) any time Wednesday noon through Saturday to share your waters in the outdoor bowl. If you would like to spend a few quiet moments in the sanctuary after sharing your waters, you may ring the doorbell between 1-3 on Friday Sept 9th, and a staff member will open the doors for you.’ You may email Rev. Pat at email@example.com with a short description of where your water came from and its significance to you to be shared at Sunday’s Service.
