We will have a  virtual coffee hour after the service on Zoom.

Online Adult Religious Education — 28 February 2021

Please join us on Sunday (28 February 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.

World Religions and Rituals of Mourning and Loss — The late Rev. Forrest Church said “Religion is the human response to being alive and having to die.”

Our President has shown a keen understanding — born of hard experience — that humans need to set aside time and space to remember those who have died and to mourn that loss.

This is particularly important in a time when we have lost so many and lost so much of the life we once knew.

This morning we will take some time to explore that need and the way it is expressed throughout different religions and cultures around the world.
