Sunday Sermon, October 28: Day of the Dead, A Celebration of Life

Lifespan Religious Education leader, Angi Nagel, will guide us in our annual  ”Day of the Dead”  sermon this Sunday, October 28th, at 11 am.

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead,  is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures around the first part of November. The holidays is marked as an opportunity to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

“The end of October can be a time when we remember our loved ones and how they changed our lives, ” says Ms. Nagel. ” This service will give us the opportunity to share that growing experience with the congregation.”

Youth and adult programs begin at 10am.  In Adult Discussion, we’ll be talking about “The New Spiritual Ideal – – “Radical indeterminacy”  , the idea of a “new enlightenment,” or Evolutionary Enlightenment, which is based upon a growing recognition that the human experience is in fact a small but not insignificant part of a cosmic evolutionary process that began almost fourteen billion years ago. It’s the all-important awakening to the fact that this process is actually going somewhere.  We’ll consider just where it might be going!
