Don Benson

Annual Burning Bowl Service

Don Benson will lead the annual UU Casper Burning Bowl service, a ritual to bid farewell to the old year, and welcome the new: reflecting on and releasing the areas of our lives that no longer serve our highest good: we look forward, creating goals that will advance our journey in the coming year.

During this ritual, all are invited to write down on a piece of paper what they wish to release from the past year. They then come forward to burn the paper as an act of symbolic farewell. Participants will then write down their wishes for their lives in the new year, and place wishes in sealed, self-addressed envelopes, which will be kept private, then mailed to everyone during the summer of 2018.

Care of the Soul: Discussion Forum

Don Benson will lead a discussion forum on the monthly worship theme, “Care of the Soul.”

Everyone is encouraged to bring a can of soup to donate to Food for Thought to help fill weekend food bags distributed to school children in Natrona County.
