February 1st is Imbolc, the Feast of Brigid, the celebration of the coming of spring on the pagan calendar. Brigid is both a goddess figure in the pre-Christian Celtic tradition as well as a Catholic saint. Reflecting on the stories of Brigid (and her multifaceted presence which includes tending a perpetual fire) inspires me to wonder: what makes something persist through the changes of time and tradition?
Sunday worship is held in-person as well as on Zoom and on Facebook every week at 10:00 a.m.
Weekly worship services are followed by an informal time in the courtyard to chat and check in. Online coffee hour starts a few minutes after the service ends.
