December Events with Frederick CUUPS

The Nature of Power with Rath Cobv
Saturday, December 5th, 2 PM
  Many of us have complex relationships with the Power. Power as a concept is natural. How we choose to interact with it makes all the difference, whether it be Power within ourselves, or Power within group dynamics. Join Rath Cobv for an in-depth discussion of the differences between Power to Create, Power to Destroy, Power Over, and Power With. This workshop is highly informed by Starhawk’s work Truth or DareFacebook event here.   This class will be presented on Zoom. Please email CUUPS@FrederickUU.org for the Zoom link.   Recommended donation for class is $10. To make a donation for the class, go to: http://www.frederickuu.org/about/Support_UUCF

Yuletide (previously-owned) Magickal Gift Exchange
Sunday, December 6th, 1-4 PM   Many of us own a previously-loved but now underused magickal tool. This holiday season, Frederick CUUPS would like to invite you to participate in a Magickal Gift Exchange that helps our treasures find new owners.   To participate, bring your wrapped previously-owned magickal tool (no books please) to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick on Sunday, December 6th, between one and four PM. Please tell the attendant whether your gift should go onto the $10 – $30 value or over $30 value table. Drop off your present and pick a new-to-you present up from the same table you contributed to.   Please feel welcome to include a note with your gift if you’d like the next owner to know anything about the magickal tool inside the wrapping (origin, history, etc). If your magickal tool is specific to one particular Path in paganism, please label it so it goes to a fitting home (i.e. deity figurines, divinatory tools that are Path-specific.) If you have any questions, please email CUUPS@frederickuu.org   This exchange is physically distanced. Masks are required for drop-off/pick-up and hand sanitizer will be available. Facebook event here.

All About Oaths with Rath Cobv
