The service will be a celebration of Winter Solstice, a pagan tradition grounded in a respect and reverence for the natural world. Hearing from several voices, attendees will cast a circle honoring the four directions as everyone embraces the coming darkness and prepare for winter’s rest.

The longest night of the year and season of winter are an important time of reflection, rest, and renewal, organizers said.

Host Carol Gable has been a UU celebrating Solstice for almost 30 years, beginning in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, then later in Vermont and New York. She lives in Utica and serves as the associate vice-president for Finance at Hamilton College and president of the Board for UU Utica.
