“THE STARS ARE NOTHING
WITHOUT THE DARKNESS IN BETWEEN”
Sunday 11am EDT by Zoom
What started as an idea to explore the ways in which winter holidays and festivals focus on light—candles, stars, and so on—has morphed into a reflection on the distinctions between lightness and darkness. Light and Dark, black and white, day and night—they are both internal and external, terrestrial and universal. Led by Susan Westenbarger

UU JUSTICE OHIO ANNUAL ASSEMBLY 2020 Saturday, Nov 21, 10 am to 1:30 pm (with lunch break)
It looks increasingly certain that Joe Biden will be our next president. But no matter who wins, we need to move forward with important justice work in Ohio. We need to plan for the future. We need to move forward with learning to hear one another again across our divisions. We need to move forward with our work to end racial injustice. We need to move forward in living our UU principles in the world. Please join us as we discuss the future and how we work together through UUJO.

INTRODUCTION TO NATURAL BURIAL (via Zoom)
Our Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens and the Athens Friends Meeting have joined together to co-sponsor a public presentation by the Southeast Ohio Natural Burial Working Group (Cheryl Cesta, StarMary Castro, Natalie Wilson, and Wenda Sheard). This public Zoom presentation titled “Introduction to Natural Burial” will be on Thursday Nov. 19 at 7:00pm. Here’s the description and Zoom information from the Southeast Ohio Natural Burial Working Group’s Facebook Page:
Come learn the history, legality, as well as the emotional, financial, environmental benefits of natural burial. Also, learn about efforts underway in Athens County to connect with township trustees, local cemeteries, funeral directors, death care, and home funeral consultants to revive the practice of natural, old-fashioned burials remembered by some grandparents and great-grandparents alive today. Questions most welcome. We hope to see you on November 19th.
