Seven Principles Calendar

Seven liturgical "seasons" (with some down-time in December and summer) in observance of our Seven Principles. Each season is associated with one of the colors of the rainbow. During each season, stories are told about our Unitarian Universalist tradition... people who said "Yes" when the Spirit called them to action.  (Other established UUobservances are included even if they do not necessarily fit the theme.)

This calendar is a work in progress, meant to be revised by the experiences and insights of the UU community.  Adopt/adapt as much or as little as you find useful and please provide suggestions in the wizdUUm discussion forums.
