Each year, at the end of summer, members and friends of Heritage Church bring water from locations near and dear to us – locations far and near – to pour together into a common vessel, in our annual Ingathering Water Ceremony. That water is used, throughout the year, as we dedicate babies, honor lives lost, and on other ritual occasions. This Sunday, now half a cycle around the sun since our waters were gathered in, we will consecrate them again, to wash away pain and sorrow, to cleanse our spirits, and to shift our perspective in our annual Water Blessing. Today, our hands – and our hearts – will be touched by holy water. Come experience this simple but powerful ritual of healing and grace. We will also enjoy the beautiful music of our HUUC Choir.
Worship Associates: Bob Drake and Roger Miller.
