Fire Communion

Fire Communion is held on the Sunday closest to January 1. It is an opportunity to celebrate the beginning of a new year. Themes can include reflection upon the year that has just passed, hope for the promise of the year to come, resolutions to change, the passage of time, hope, expectation and dreaming of a creating a better tomorrow. In this service, congregants burn pieces of paper containing brief descriptions of something they most wish to leave behind and light a candle for a new hope for the coming year.
