Thanks to everyone for helping to make the Water Walk for Life Marchers feel welcome and comfortable on their overnight stay at LUUF on Monday, March 6th. Whether you made food for the potluck; helped clean before they arrived; drove them to or from LUUF; brought them breakfast; came by Monday for fellowship; or simply have supported LUUF by making contributions this year, thereby making this and other events possible.
The Water Walk for Life is an 8-day, 90 mile prayer walk organized by the Grafton Peace Pagoda in solidarity with Standing Rock, to raise awareness about pipelines and threats to water sources. LUUF hosted approximately 30 walkers overnight. We were treated to songs and stories from walkers whose ties tothe Native Okinawa people of Japan made them feel especially close to our own Native Americans, and their fight to preserve our water.
Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.

Spring is here and so is our annual Maypole Service!
Join us at 11 a.m. on April 30 as we welcome guest speaker Joe Gonzalez in celebrating Beltane with our annual Maypole Service. Gonzalez explains, "Beltane is a season of rebirth, a time to celebrate the blooming of the flowers, the growing of the crops, and even personal rejuvenation. Join us as we celebrate this ancient festival through personal ritual, chanting, guided meditation, and a Maypole dance!
Celebrate Spring with us and bring the energy of rebirth to your life, our community and the world!"
Gonzalez lives in Stamford, Conn., with his wife Tara and their three children. Joe and Tara, former members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Stamford, presently serve as Wiccan high priest and priestess of the Sacred Circle Pagan Group and lead quarterly pagan rituals during Sunday services. Joe is a friend of the Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation in White Plains, N.Y., where two of their children attend religious education classes. Tara and Joe also teach Wiccan lessons through Religious Ed Neighboring Faiths classes, both in White Plains and at the UU congregation in Westport, CT..
Our community welcomes you, and your family.
Join us every Sunday for provocative programs featuring music, meditation, fellowship and spiritual connection.
