Anxious, depressed about the state of the country, the world? How does this shift, can it, when we find and take hold of our sense of purpose, of living a “just life?” We remember loved ones who have died in 2017 in our service today. Bring small photos of them or mementos for our Tolling of the Bells ritual.

What Are We Waiting For?

Waiting means there’s something we expect or hope for or fear in the future. In this service we are invited to consider what we are waiting for individually and as a community. There may be creative thought, discussion, action or changing what we are waiting for, to set us on a good and proper course.
