On Saturday, November 2, we will hold a 6 p.m. service for All Souls Day, remembering those whom we have loved and lost. Death in the Christian tradition embraces the tension of grief and celebration. We celebrate that those we love who have died are with God, and that we will be reunited with them in eternal life. But we also mourn their loss here on earth.
This special service will provide our community with a space to join in grief over our losses, and we will eat a potluck meal together afterwards. We invite you to bring framed pictures of loved ones who have died (label them with your name on the back so that they can be returned to you). Give the pictures to Suzanne or put them in the box outside her office door during the month of October. We will display the pictures during the potluck, in the social hall, following the service. Also, please plan to bring your loved ones favorite dish for this potluck.
This will be a time to share memories, a time to shed tears remembering how much our loved ones meant to us, and a time for fellowship, knowing that we are not alone in our grief. Please invite any family, friends, or neighbors who might wish to remember their loved ones this way.
