SUNDAY, DECEMBER 21st: “Happy Merry Miracle and Bright” with Ralph Galen
It’s not a talk, it’s an experience;
we will share together
in poetry and song to remind us
of the incomparable gift of life
we’ve been given, a miracle truly,
known in joy and sadness,
these holidays and every day
made holy when we share our love
for each other.
Join Ralph Galen in this powerful moment of community as we grow into a new winter and a new year. Originally from New York, Ralph is an Affiliate Minister at the UU Church of Wakefield, MA, and Coordinator of the Transformative Justice Project. Ralph is active with UU’s for Justice in the Middle East, Mass. Trust Act Coalition, UUMassAction, and UU’s for a Just Economic Community. Ralph is also a prison volunteer facilitator, building restorative justice practices in Lawrence, and the father of two children from whom he’s inherited most of what’s good and talented about him.
