Why I Like TRUU…
I like how open-minded TRUU is. Like most Unitarian-Universalist congregations, nearly everyone comes from some other place, some other faith tradition. But they really listen to other views and are ready to update their viewpoints…
I also love how TRUU’s ministers come from really different backgrounds — Rev. Norris was once a prosecuting attorney!
This is a really fascinating group of people.
Upside-Down Solstice 12/18!
Our popular, public and participatory Solstice Celebration, is back! Join us for the "upside down" Solstice, where our nightime celebation takes place in the morning, and where the Worship Associate leads the service where the roles are all scrambled.
We will welcome back the sun with: a pagan ritual honoring the four cardinal directions, a children's Saturnalia story a wreath-and-wishes ritual, a bonfire, spiral dance, caroling and cookies.
Join us live and in-person, Dec. 18 at 10 am.
