Keeping the Flame of Hope Alive

Services at 9:00 and 10:30 AM. Third Sunday in Advent. This Sunday falls in the middle of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, an 8-day commemoration of the Maccabean overthrow of colonial rule. A Talmudic story tells how a jug of oil expected to last only one night, burned instead for eight. How do we keep the flame alive in these challenging times? How do we sustain strength and courage when events around us threaten to deplete us?

Advent Vespers

This will be a quiet service at 5 PM, focusing on the contemplative dimensions of Advent, Hanukkah, and Solstice.  Vespers are meant to give you a break from hectic preparations, some time to pause and reflect on the deeper meanings of the holidays.

Yule Service

One service at 7 PM. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces chapter of Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) invites you to come and celebrate Yule. We will celebrate the Solstice and the “return” of the sun.

Angels Among Us

One service at 10:30 AM. Fourth Sunday in Advent. Who in our world are the “Angels” – the messengers of hope, peace, joy, and love? Could they be our neighbors, our friends and relatives – or the stranger across town? Please “come as you are” to this Christmas Eve Morning service, as we explore these questions through story and song. See also “Carols and Candlelight” at 6:30 PM
