Date: Dec 4
Title: “St. Nicholas : Myth and Model” - We will look at stories and customs around St Nicholas, his North American counterpart Santa Claus and other holiday celebrations. Giving gifts is a common theme in this winter time celebration. Can we go beyond the habit of stressful and expensive gift-giving to display generosity and humanity that truly echo our Unitarian Universalist values?
Service Leaders: Hanusia Tkaczyk, Meaghan Malashewski
Date: Dec 11
Title: "The 8-fold Paths of Buddha and Jesus" - Brian Dunn - Both Buddha and Jesus taught 'paths' to enlightenment and salvation respectively. Come join us for a comparative exploration of how these might challenge and complement each other.
Brian has spoken with us twice before about similar comparitive religious topics. We are happy to welcome him again.
Service Leader: Rosemary Burris

Date: Dec 18
Title: "It's Time"  - the Rev. Suzanne Wasilczuk - "A reflection I gave five years ago.  It's a retelling of the Christmas story, in more contemporary terms; with plenty of carols; and I will probably add the building of creches [the traditional figures that make up a Christian nativity scene: mother, father, baby, shepherds, wise men, animals] that I used in another Christmas service."
