Many cultures and religious traditions around the world use this time, late fall, to reflect on the transformations we each endure through the process of losing those we love. All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Dia de los Muertos—these are a few of the best-known holidays honoring the beloved dead. The transition into autumn, with all of the letting-go that it entails, provides the perfect backdrop for a service on the theme of loss and grief, in which we will observe a special ritual for the remembrance of our lost loved ones. Please bring a photograph or a memento symbolizing your loved one(s) for the Altar of Remembrance that we will create together during this worship service.
This month's theme: Transformation
Speaker: Rev. Ilene Kaur Tompkins-Gillispie
