About the service: Autumn is the season of the thin veil, when the border between the living and dead feels porous. This is a time when many religions and cultures recognize death, grief, and loss. Join us on Sunday, as Rev. Erica preaches on these tender and sacred topics. How do we acknowledge our pain and the pain of others? What spiritual practices might help us in these times of individual and collective grief?

Offering and Giving First
