Ashes to Ashes

Your chance to have the last word!
Saturday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the parish hall

What will your funeral/memorial service look like? Do you wish loved ones would share thoughts about their own funerals?

Well, here’s your chance. All are welcome to Ashes to Ashes, an evening of conversation and funeral planning. Table discussion among family and friends can clarify what you would like your funeral to communicate. Planning forms, hymnals, Bibles and examples of funeral/memorial services will be available. A light sandwich supper provided.

Please contact Linda Schoene, Congregational Nurse

Prayer Across Faiths

In prayer we humans orient toward God: we direct praise, lament, questions, petitions and thanksgiving to God who made us, redeemed us and sustains us. In prayer we are in conversation with God and open for God to be in conversation with us, in personal prayer as well as in group and worship settings. In February Sunday Forum will learn about prayer practices in four faith traditions, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish. The presenters will share practices and content, and discuss how prayer shapes and supports daily living and ethical decision making.
