Earth Honoring/Pagan Traditions
Unitarian Universalism draws its faith from many sources, including the spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions that celebrate the sacred circle of life and inspire us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
This group does not currently have a leader. If this is an area you are interested in please reach out to Janet Haas, the Adult Spiritual Development chair, at email@example.com.
