Sunday Service 10 AM
Worship Service Theme: Finding a Path to Peace
October 23, 2016 Expressions of Truth “What is Truth?” Speaker: Peter Holland The search for truth is the religious/spiritual core of modern Unitarian Universalism and it distinguishes our church from others who at their core dispense truth. What are the consequences of this search for us and for the larger society? How should we conduct our search? What standards of truth surround us?
Which ones should we emulate?
October 30, 2016 Expressions of RemembranceRemembering Our Loved Ones Together Speaker: Shared Remembrances
The fall season is a time when many cultures and religions around the world honor loved ones who have passed. During this shortened service, we will explore some of those traditions, especially Samhaim, the Fall Pagan rite. Children and adults will be invited to light a candle and share a picture, food item, or totem that reminds them of a loved one who has passed. Those who have participated in a Religious Education activity during the month of October will share a shrine piece they have made themselves. After the shortened service, people will choose a memorial project to create and add to the shrine. This memorial will be a growing tribute as we continue to add pieces through November 27th when we will use the alter as a centerpiece to celebrate our passage from grief to gratitude.
*Be sure to gather up special pieces you would like to use as a tribute to a loved one. These could be recipes, favorite sayings, honors and awards, pictures, articles of clothing, old jewelry, etc.
