Frederick CUUPS Imbolc Ritual
Friday, February 5th, 7 PM
  The smallest flame can bring light into even the coldest, darkest night, and so we will honor the sparks that, together, grow into a fiery blaze. In this Imbolc ritual, we will honor the theme of hope and the growing light that is returning to the world. We will feel our hope rekindled within us. This ritual will allow space for visioning, reflection, and intention setting by meditating on the Thorns, Buds, and Blooms currently sprouting from the cold earth in the gardens of our lives and community.   Supplies Needed:
Three Candles.
Three strips of paper (for burning).
A writing utensil.
A safe vessel in which to burn your papers.   This ritual will be presented on Zoom. Please email CUUPS@FrederickUU.org for the Zoom link. Recommended donation for the ritual is $5. Facebook event here.

Do you have a new tattoo? You can show us if you’d like! Did you just get a new item for your altar that is the absolute BEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN? Why yes, we would love to see that.
