Saturday: Summer solstice celebration at First Unitarian Universalist

See also

Summer solstice is the longest day of the year, and marks the beginning of the warm season. For millennia cultures across the Northern Hemisphere have celebrated the summer solstice (or Midsummer's Eve) with flowers, maypole dancing, bonfires, food, and celebrations of St John the Baptist.

On Saturday, June 21 from 5 to 6 p.m. In Spirit Ministries is hosting a Summer Solstice Chant at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 93 West Weisheimer Road in Columbus. The chant will include uplifting songs that tap into the healing energy of music. A drumming circle starts at 4:30 p.m.

In Spirit Ministries also hosts a chant at 5 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month at First UU. A special musical guest often joins their regular band.

The group does musical outreach visits to hospitals and nursing homes, and holds a monthly spiritual study group at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of every month at Unitarian Universalist Congregation East, 1789 Lancaster Avenue in Reynoldsburg. Each meeting includes a sharing of prayers and songs, and discussion of a spiritual topic with application to everyday life. The group's facilitator is Rev. Joanne Blum. The group is free and open to all. Donations are encouraged.
