Barbara Albert to speak on Tu B’Shevat at Unitarian Universalist Congregation

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua welcomes long-time member Barbara Albert as the speaker on Sunday, Feb. 9. Albert will speak about Tu B’Shevat, and share this ancient Jewish celebration with a contemporary meaning. The New Year of the Trees is a celebration of the renewal of life in spring, the rising of sap in the trees, and the promise of fruitful harvests to come. We will explore in ceremony, metaphor and celebration!

During worship services, children may remain with their parents, or parents may send children either to the supervised nursery or to the independent play room for children who are able to engage in unsupervised activities, such as crafts and games. Both rooms are adjacent to the main room and have large windows, which allow parents and children to see one another during the service.

This month, the Social Action Committee is collecting toilet paper for the Silver Creek Food Pantry.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in our immediate and global communities, and providing companionship on life’s sacred journey.
