On the first Sunday of November we not only celebrate the feast of All Saints but begin to feel the rush of the holiday season. Spend a Saturday with the Revs. Cynthia Park and Mary Hemmer as they open helpful conversations that balance the joy of celebrating the lives of those we still love but who have died.
Whether this is your first Thanksgiving and Christmas after a death or the fifteenth, there are moments you likely dread, others you anticipate with joy, and some traditions you wish you could set aside and others you wish you could add. This day is an opportunity to explore all of this. Our time together will conclude with a Holy Communion service that includes a celebratory All Saints liturgy.
The Holy Living and Holy Dying seminar is Saturday, November 4 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Grace Church in Gainesville. The $15 fee includes lunch; please register below no later than noon on Wednesday, November 1.
