Annual Water Communion and Homecoming
Date(s) - 09/06/2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist
At Two Rivers UU, water is part of our name, and the Water Communion is a beloved part of our yearly ritual. It’s our annual homecoming. Traditionally, members bring to the service a small amount of water from a place they visited over the summer. During the appointed time in the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, the person who brought it tells why this water is special to them. The TRUU worship committee, led Worship Leader Chris Coyle, have adapted this ritual for use in current online service.
Drawn from a ritual first used at a Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship service in the 1980s, the combined waters symbolize community and our shared faith coming from many different sources. It is blessed by the congregation, then used as the congregation’s “holy water” in child dedication ceremonies and similar events. Our sermon will come from the Rev. Kate Wilkinson, senior minister of the historic Provincetown Unitarian-Universalist Meeting House in New Jersey – the congregation that first welcomed Universalism to the New World.
