A Season of Gathering

By Wendy Weiss, Programs and Membership Coordinator membership@westsideuuc.org


And here we are, the third week of November—the quiet before the holidays. We’re beginning the beginning of the process of closing out 2019. In a few weeks we’ll be in December, looking back over a year well spent. We humans have all sorts of customs to mark this time of year and the passage of time. So many celebrations for so many holidays that fall between now and the New Year. Calendars get full as the decorations get hung, and we look forward to these winter moments together.
