All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green. - Goethe

Today was everybody's (or at least my) favorite UU service: Bread Sunday! This year I made a Swedish Limpa Rye Bread. It turned out fantastic. Additionally, it supported the UU cliche of coffee loving as the recipe called for two cups of it in the dough. It was fantastic.
Of course, I like this service for other reasons then just the sharing of bread. I like taking time for just being in thanks and sharing of gratitude. I like hearing people's stories on why they chose which bread to share. Hearing each other's history's, traditions, and family stories brings us closer together as a community. It is also one of the rare times that most UU churches are experiencing the same sort of service. It is a connection to the larger denomination. I hope yours was as meaningful as ours.
