Rebekah Benner and Worship Associate Lori McGee – This Feast of the Dead is considered one of the primary time-locked cracks between the worlds. The ritual of Samhain, “Summer’s End”, marks the end, and the beginning of the Celtic new year. In the time when the new year begins, it is believed that two different worlds come together: the world of the ancestors and the world of the living. We take this time to remember those who have journeyed before us, sharing in a celebration of life. You are welcome to bring a photo or memento of your loved one to place on the Samhain table.
Heidi Emhoff with worship associate Eric Van Baars – The band U2 has been a relevant part of the popular rock scene since the 1980s both for their music and political activism. Professed Christians, though not affiliated with any particular religious order or church, U2 has both preached and put into practice a humanist, tolerant faith. Today we explore the inspiring spiritual messages found in some of U2’s best songs.
Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Lori McGee – Technology is dramatically changing the way we live our lives.
