In the humourous science fiction novel by Douglas Adams, the Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy, people on another planet create the greatest of all computers.  The computer is called Deep Thought and the people created it for one purpose only.  To tell them “the answer”.

SourceFire Imbolc Ritual

imbolcLeaders: Cassie Rawlinson & Maxine Rawlinson
When the dark days of winter seem to have gone on forever, the first sign of spring refreshes our souls. It is a promise that winter will not last forever and that warm and fertile days will come again soon.
• Bob GaulJoin us as we celebrate Imbolc! Rejoice in the stirring earth as we plant fire seeds and join together in a ritual to awaken the dragon sleeping within the earth and ourselves.

Come along and bring a friend if you like. Feel free to bring nut free food to share and donations are welcome.

SourceFire meets in the Great Hall on the third Thursday of each month from September to June. We celebrate our UU principles and honour the earth often with poetry, readings, meditation, dance, drumming, singing and ritual.

It’s the end of the world and I don’t feel fine. I don’t feel fine at all.

I grew up with the threat of nuclear war.

My high school English teacher had us read a short story about a suburban family in the immediate days following a nuclear explosion. It doesn’t end well.
