What happens when we die, or when we say farewell to loved ones? There is not one right answer — but exploring the question is part of a search for meaning in human life. We’ll construct an altar including photos or mementos of our loved ones (non-human friends and family are welcome to be represented).

We are never truly severed from those we have loved, even when they pass into the great mystery called death. As the days get shorter and cooler many cultures celebrate our ongoing connections with our dearly departed loved ones. Halloween, Día de los Muertos, Feast of the Ancestors — all help us call to mind those lights that will never be fully extinguished. Rev. Lisa R. Schwartz will explore the traditions, and UUA Staff member Elizabeth A. Terry will be on hand to help us celebrate our congregation’s legacy of Fair Share giving. Please bring photos or small mementos of your departed loved ones for display on the altar. And plan to stay for a reception in the Memorial Garden, honoring those deceased in our congregation in the past year. Speaker: Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz

For most of our history Unitarian Universalists have been challenged to live up to the promise of the Beloved Community we seek to build. There have been many struggles with a monocultural reality as we have striven to create a multicultural vision of our future together. Guest speaker Rev. Mykal Slack is the community minister for worship and spiritual care for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU). He will speak about practicing for the promise of our faith. The UUFWS Choir sings today.
