    October Ministry Theme: Grief and Mourning

     

    Words to Live By:
    "Between grief and nothing, I will take grief."
    William Faulkner

     

    October 21 "May We Know Good Grief"

    Two services: 9:30 & 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    Preacher: Reverend Caitlin O’Brien

     

    Someone once wished my colleague "good grief" at the loss of his loved one. I remember being struck by the contrast of the two words, and what seemed their impossible pairing. In the years since then, I've lived through more grief myself and I think I have a few ideas about what he meant. Let's consider this together.

    October 28: “Mourning, Meaning Making & Celebration”

    Annual Ritual of Remembrance

    Two services: 9:30 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

     

    I have often said that All Souls is at our very best at the memorial service. Why is that so? We’ll reflect on the ritual that follows life’s final rite of passage – the memorial service’s necessity, frequent hilarity, and always, its beauty.

Each session includes silent sitting mediation, walking mediation, and dharma sharing, in which folks may share their meditation experiences.

Quiet Time with Singing Bowls

The tones produced by Himalayan singing bowls can be a unique entry into a place of calm, peace, healing, and harmony.

If you have never heard several singing bowls played together, you have never really heard singing bowls.

Please consider joining John Irwin, who has been playing singing bowls for over three years, each Tuesday evening at All Souls from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a period of peace and relaxation.

All are welcome.
