You can still celebrate the Summer Solstice with the Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 5603 Bull Valley Road in McHenry this Friday, June 23 beginning at 8 pm. with readings, chants, drumming, dancing, and singing. The public is welcome to attend.
We’ll mark the first day of Summer, when the Sun reaches the highest point in the sky. This moment is sacred for many Earth-centered religions. Weather permitting, we will meet outside. Bring a lawn chair, bug spray, a drum if you have one, and a snack for the fairies—something shaped like the Sun, colored like the Sun, or grilled over fire.
In gathering, we share our delight in the abundant sunlight, take a moment to send prayers to the wind, and affirm our sacred love for Life and each other.
Dance of the Witches from the 2022 Tree of Life Summer Solstice observance.
The program includes a Dance of the Witches. To participate come at 7:30 in your witch or warlock costume for a brief rehearsal.
The program is part of the congregation’s monthly vesper services and is free to the public. A free will collection will be taken.
