Feed Your Soul gatherings are an informal gathering centered in the rituals of community building, drawing on various aspects from "dinner church" services, UU worship, and other sacred spaces to create a gathering that feels deeply spiritual and full of meaning. Everyone is invited to come early to help set up and stay after to help clean up together as part of the service. This gathering will be like a carry-in. Bring in your dish early enough so we can prepare the table and still start the service at 10:45 a.m. We will share a meal as part of the gathering and have readings, singing, sharing, and conversation. This is an intergenerational service.
