10:30 am - Service - Rev. Susan Ross
“Water, Water, Everywhere
March 22 is World Water Day. Water is, of course, necessary for life, but safe water is becoming more and more scarce in our world. What can be done? What can we do? And how does the way water speaks to us spiritually enter into all of this?
We will be sharing in a Water Ceremony as part of our time together. This is a traditional ceremony in many UU congregations, involving everyone bringing a small container of water from their home or a place that is significant to you (perhaps a favorite lake, river or pond). We will join these water contributions together as we explore the importance of water for the life of our earth, for our own lives, and for our spirits.

On Sunday, March 18, we will be sharing in a Water Ceremony as part of our time together.  This is a traditional ceremony in many UU congregations, and involves everyone bringing with them to the service that Sunday a small container of water---from your house or from some other place that is significant to you (a favorite lake or river or pond perhaps).  We will join these water contributions together as we explore the importance of water for the life of our earth, for our own lives, and for our spirits.  

Reverend Ross, ordained as a United Methodist minister, is our pastoral care minister and speaks on the third Sunday of the month. She also teaches as an adjunct in the OSU English Department.
