“Remembrance Sunday” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon

In this Intergenerational Service of Remembrance, we will mark the season in which the ancients believed the veil between the living and the dead thinned. Together we will build an altar remembering all those whom we have lost. Please bring a photo or memento of a loved one to add to our altar.

Other Programs and Activities

9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level, Forum Room/Library

A representative from the Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs will speak. Forum information.

10:05 to 10:45 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – “Memorial Meditation” – Memorial Garden

Coordinating with the day’s worship theme, a special “Memorial Meditation” will be held in the Memorial Garden to give people a chance to gather and remember their loved ones who have departed this life.

Participants will sit in silence, with their own thoughts, for the first half of the meditation. In the second half, those who feel moved to do so will be invited to rise and share their thoughts and feelings. It will be a time for quiet reflection and sensitive sharing.

Please arrive on time. There will be wooden benches and marble seats available for seating, but participants are welcome to bring their own folding chairs. Email Peter Holmes for more information.

We offer a religious education program for pre-schoolers through junior high school students, as well as nursery care for infants.
