All the members of UUPS and a few guests from Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day gathered at the House of Muad’Dib on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 7pm to celebrate the deities, prepare for the dark times and give thanks for blessings received. The ritual started at sunset and included praise, music, drums, dance, a ritual putting out of the light times fire and the lighting of black candles in semblance of the coming dark period and ruling time of the God. President Muad’Dib took all those present on a path working to the Crone and used pear fruit to help those present think about what they want to do in the coming months of introspection, reflection and darkness. Afterwards was the traditional feasting which included freshly baked bread! All in all it was an excellent feast and celebration! Till next we meet!

Thanks to all who came and helped out at the booth at this years Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day. This year’s was hosted by Crone’s Hollow on Main street on September 10, 2011 from 9am-6pm. The smaller space was unable to allow for all the vendors that usually would have came. UUPS gave away lots of information, met new people, discussed why we’re here and even had a few people sign up! Live rock music provided by Lady of the Lake set the scene as the sun rose high in the sky before we were all rained out about 4:00 pm. As a bronze sponsor of Pagan Pride Day in Salt Lake City, UUPS was happy to attend, renew friendships, relationships and provide the support and inclusive of the pagan community in the Salt Lake Valley. Till next year!

Due to the Holiday of Labor day, the Beehive Tea Room will be closed, so UUPS will have no meeting. Plan on meeting later in the week to plan for Pagan Pride Day this upcoming Saturday, September 10!! Maybe Wednesday, Thursday Night. We need at least four people to man the table at the festival so we can all have turns instead of being glued to our seats all day. I’ll send out an email update for our Pagan Pride Planing meeting. See you all then!
