Remembering the Dead and Living Fully
Viola Fairweather preaching
October 29 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
For centuries people around the globe have been honoring their ancestors and souls of the departed. Peter Morales, a former UUA President, urged us not to dismiss the Day of the Dead because we could easily miss the profound spiritual insight that makes the tradition powerful.
You are invited on this Sunday closest to Hallowed Eve to bring a picture or symbol of your loved one to place on the altar as you enter the sanctuary. During the service we will all be invited to gather in a circle around the church aisles. We will pass the chalice around and, if you choose, speak aloud the name or names of your beloved dead. This will enable us to appreciate and value them with you. Special music will be provided by Ed Priest and Patty & Barry Simon.
Note: The church calendar contains some events that are not open to everyone, so that we can plan for building use. Open events are shown on the home page. Click on an event to show the full description.
