  • If you could invite someone to dinner to share soup with you, who would you invite and why?
  • What can YOU do this holiday season so that more people can enjoy hot soup in community?

To Every Season...

"To Everything There is a Season"

Questions to ponder with your family and friends:

  • What is a SEASON?
  • How does this Season make you feel?
  • What sort of Rituals do you do during this time of year as a family? ~ Some of our Hindu friends are Celebrating Diwali now, a festival of lights.
  • Where will you be celebrating other holidays during the month of November? What will you be celebrating and how does that relate to being Unitarian Universalist?
  • What will do you for others that might have a hard time finding a meal for their next holiday celebration?
