Join with your neighbors from this valley to honor the earth on the Winter Solstice. The longest night of the year calls us to honor winter, the time of healing and rest for our fragile planet. We will respect those who came before us on the earth, consider these darkest days, and gather around the bonfire with hot apple cider and warm clothes in the darkness.

As we move into winter, we invite you, as a representative of a Flathead Valley organization, to join us in a valley-wide Winter Solstice Celebration. During these difficult times, as we face the challenges of climate change, we particularly feel the need to pull together as people with similar concerns. The Solstice is a natural time in the earth’s cycle for us to do this.

Sponsored by:  Glacier Unitarian Universalist Fellowship as well as several environmental and religious organizations.
