"Unitarian Universalism and Paganism---Why are Pagans Coming to Church?"
with Sacred Bridges CUUPs

In the words that introduce our child dedication ritual, we say that it is our task as parents and a community to share with our children our ideals and hopes. And it is our task to learn from them the zest and wonder of life, with which children come into this world, and which we too often lose later in life. For this Father’s Day service, we will consider together the gifts of parenting and of being parented, reflecting on the zest, wonder, and revelry that can accompany both.
