Traditions such as the Day of the Dead (native to Mexico) and the pagan holy day Samhain (pr. SAH-win), now aka All Hallows Eve or Halloween, suggest the veil between earthly life and the spirit world is thinnest this time of year. So this autumn Sunday we explore what may lie beyond this mortal realm.
You’re invited to bring photos or mementos of deceased loved ones for the Remembrance table(s). It’s prudent to add a small note/sticker on the back identifying it as yours, so you can be notified if it’s forgotten (it happens). If attending online, you could have your mementos with you that morning.
Worship Leader: Rev. Peter Farriday
Special Music: Veronika Agranov-Dafoe
