Throughout human history, we have variously celebrated, feared and embraced the multiple, and often paradoxical, traits that characterize the one earth we all share as our home. The earth gives life and it takes life. The earth nourishes and withholds. The earth is beautiful and violent, peaceful and uncaring, fragile and resilient. And whether we like it or not, we are a part of this earth, in all its creative, destructive, and sustaining power. One more reason to find ways to honor the earth as the sacred place we depend on since before our beginning and through the end of our days. The service will include a ritual honoring our dead. All are invited to bring a photo or other object that reminds us of the loss(es) we mourn.
Our first Sunday drop-in covenant group will focus on our monthly theme of “Sacred Earth.” All are invited to participate. Rev. Lyn Marshall will facilitate.
