ZOOM ONLY. Rev. Barnaby reflected on what animal behavior and intelligence teaches us about how to relate spiritually and emotionally to anything we consider as “other” to us. Poppy led our Time for All Ages in which we lit candles and blessed the animals who were or are part of our lives Jess Danyow, a CVUUS congregant and Homeward Bound Exec Dir., gave a testimonial. Watch a recording of the service here.

May the light of this chalice give light
and warmth to our community,
when we are joyful and when we despair.
And may we feel the warmth spread
from our circle
to wider and wider circles,
until all know they belong
to the one circle of life.
