I had my second, and much belated Beltane this weekend. This was my second ritual with a women's group affiliated with the local UU fellowship. I am just getting to know them, but I feel really at home with these women.
This sense of connection and community was something I had hoped I could find in the UU body here, and it feels wonderful to find it. I felt very welcomed, like my contributions were equal to anyone else. There was no hint of insider vs. outsider status.
I wanted to find a women's group for a long time. I just never expected to find it with a bunch of UU's. So far, it's been a great surprise.
