Harvest-time – a time of fruition – remembering the sacred meal #unitarians

The time of fruition came, the crowning glory.

The all, complete entirety, the dance, the great unfolding, the source and rule of all that is, radiant and breathing through the great teacher Jesus, said this to humankind, to us:



I am realized, I am embodied.

Take, eat: this here, this now – this is my Body which is given for you.
Remember thisness as often as you eat; set your self down – as you would set down a plate on a table – to clear the way for me to claim you and nourish you.

All of you, drink of this: this here, this now 
 this is my Lifeblood which is given for you.
Remember thisness as often as you drink; hold out your self – as you would hold out a chalice to the jug – to clear the way for me to claim you and fill you.

Set your self down and offer your self up,

And I will claim you.

September 2016 meeting for reverence #unitarians


Poetry took centre stage in our September meeting.  After our usual ritual, which for some is a recollection of our gathering together - to be more than we can be by ourselves -  we had three poems on autumn.  A contemporary Pagan source provided our sacred scripture for the day.  There was time for quiet reflection and then we enjoyed a lively discussion over coffee, and we found ourselves particularly engaged by one of the poems.
