Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen – Each of us has inherited a great cloud of witnesses – our physical and spiritual ancestors, the people who have made our own lives possible, the ones we have loved and lost. This morning we will honor and remember our beloved dead. Please bring a photograph or some object that reminds you of the person or people you want to remember with you to church to share on our altar of memory.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This morning we will celebrate the strength and the courage of those who struggle to find hope and a way to a life lived free from violence. Safer Futures is our local shelter for women and shelter who are fleeing violent homes. We invite you to bring toiletries to church with you this morning to be donated to Safer Futures. Safer Futures is currently in need of toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant and feminine products – although anything is appreciated.
