Before we slam the door on 2017, I thought I’d like to highlight some recent seasonal videos. Not only does the internet host a growing collection of UU-Pagan writings, but YouTube is also home to an increasing number of Unitarian Universalist Pagan and Earth-Centered videos. I thought I’d highlight a few which came out in the last month or so and one from this time last year.
Erica Baron on The VUU
Rev. Erica Baron is an author here at Nature’s Path. She’s also a Unitarian Universalist parish minister at the UU Congregation of the Catskills in Kingston, NY. The VUU is a weekly UU themed video talkshow. It is streamed live, on YouTube, every Thursday at 11am Eastern Time. On Dec. 21st she was the featured guest, along with Staṡa Morgan-Appel, a Pagan Quaker, who is co-author of A Winter Solstice Singing Ritual.
Under The Ancient Oaks episode #7
John Beckett, another author on the Patheos Pagan channel, hosts a monthly series of short videos on a variety of topics relating to his practice of Druidry as a Unitarian Universalist. This episode, which was released a couple weeks ago on Dec. 16th is about honoring our ancestors.
Frederick CUUPS Yule Chants
Looking to learn a few Yule related Chants? As a service to their attendees, a couple weeks before each major ritual Frederick CUUPS produces a video where Lara Powell-Harvey teaches the chants which is used in the upcoming rite. For instance this video came out Dec. 5th for their Dec. 22nd Yule ritual.

This is a recording of the Winter Solstice service held last Sunday at the Unitarian Univeralist Congregation Of Shelter Rock in Manhasset, NY . The service was held in the Chapel by their intern minister Nancy Reid-McKee, a seminary student at Starr King. Along with music from the interfaith music group Willow.
