Hong Kong UU Partner
At our January 24, 2010 multigenerational, multicultural worship service, we celebrated our partnership with Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong (UUHK) with an early celebration of the Chinese New Year. The service drew record attendance and raised approximately $300 to support future partnership efforts. The service included performances of traditional Chinese instruments (Guzheng and Ehru), a Chinese vocalist who sang the original Chinese lyrics of a tune from our Unitarian Universalist hymnal, Chinese music on recorder from our own Rosemarie Petrich, a story about a Wishing Tree in Hong Kong, and information about traditions of the Chinese New Year and about UUHK. Children received lucky red envelopes each containing a Chinese coin. The service culminated with a joyful postlude of younger children entering the sanctuary with drums that they decorated and with older children entering with lion dancing. After the service, attendees enjoyed a Kung Fu demonstration with swords and a delicious Chinese lunch. It was truly a celebration!
