Future Sunday Services
April 5th, 10 AM,
Rev. Richard Speck, "The Jesus I Celebrate."
Easter is a very special day for many people, but can pose some challenges for Unitarian Universalists. Rev Speck will explore his understanding of Jesus and why he is important to many people.
Join us in welcoming Richard back to our pulpit on Easter Sunday as we celebrate life with its mysteries and miracles.
April 12th. 10 AM
Dr. Sybil Wolin, "In Loving Hands: Care for Our Dead."
In this talk, Sybil Wolin will describe the paths taken by spiritual communities and other self-selected groups who are assisting members when death occurs. In her travels to India, she regularly saw families tending to their own dead. Impressed by their solemn dignity, she founded a bereavement committee at Adas Israel, her congregation in Washington DC, and served on the Greater Washington Funeral Practices Committee from 1993-2003. Currently Sybil serves as the Chestertown Havura resource for members in the event of death.
Death is a topic rarely discussed at UUCR, yet this final stage in the life cycle has equal responsibilities for a
faith community. Death offers us yet another opportunity to live the Principles and beliefs of our chosen faith. In this talk, Sybil will share her experiences from travel, research and support role in the community. This will be an opportunity for us to examine our own response to death in our community, and learn ways to be pro-active in offering love and support at this time.
April 19th 10 AM,
