Grand Poobah | Celebrating The Solstice



It’s that time of year again—and I couldn’t be more excited. This Sunday is our 2nd Annual Winter Solstice celebration at Judson Church. We had such a big, glorious celebration last year and I’m excited to see what will happen this year as we apply what we learned from the year before. It was our first evening service ever and our biggest service ever, too. This year’s theme is SPACE and, in characteristic Secret City fashion, we aim to explore the theme in all of its many dimensions—outer space, personal space, performance space, the space between people, safe space. It’s a rich, rich theme. Our colors are Silver and White and, my outfit is being finished as I type—I promise to deliver sequins and platforms and spectacle. And, my hope is that we will create an evening that brings people together, providing joy to all in these scary times. A service that focuses on community and kindness, creating a tonic against the darkness. I know I take solace and great comfort from knowing the Secret City exists—and happiness in knowing we will all gather together in just a few days, to celebrate the greatest aspects of being human: art, cooperation, kindness, community, creativity, music, food—I hope to see you there.

Sunday, December 18th at 6:30 at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South. Bring a treat to share for coffee hour afterward, dress up in silver and white if you like. There’s a $20 suggested donation. No one is turned away.

The Secret City. We worship art.
