Luminescence is a celebration of light, reflection, and renewal observed on the third Sunday in February by an increasing number of UU churches in the US. It is meant to bring a little extra light into a still-dark time of the year. A time that is often filled with sadness and loss. Participants are invited to prepare five candles for the service, though it is not necessary. In addition, we will explore the meaning and relevance of the season of Lent.
