December 28, 2014: Celebrating an Authentic New Years
Led by Frank Holstein
Music: Will Magalio

For New Years, do you find that you are sometimes dismayed by persistent pressure to be happy and full of fun? So why not resolve instead to cast-out the New Years demon that demands we make merry even when we may have good reason to decline. So let us be compassionate about our non-conformity and instead welcome the New Year by confirmation of our free will to design our own religious and personal renewal.
