Many at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark (UUFN) actively recognize nature, being in nature, and noticing the cycles of nature as part of their spiritual practice.  This is an important spiritual aspect for Unitarian Universalism, as we draw inspiration from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.  Our UU 6th Source includes:  "Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the Sacred Circle of Life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature."

To that end, we have special Sunday worship services and other events where we celebrate the winter and summer solstices and the spring and fall equinoxes, as well as the cross-quarters Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas, and Samhain.

Each celebration is unique and, consistent with Unitarian Universalism, there is no dogma or creed. One does not have to identify as pagan or earth centered to attend. All are welcome.

Blessed be!

In 2023, UUFN established a chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, called Glade of the Sacred Wheel.

We welcome those who identify as Pagans, including Earth-centered traditions, Wiccans, Druids, practitioners of Goddess Spirituality, and Indigenous Religions.  We begin by celebrating the solstices and equinoxes, as well as the cross-quarter days, with ritual, readings, candle-lighting, and songs.
