Belonging: The Foundation for the Spiritual Journey”
Dr. Alan Kolp

The theme of belonging has become popular in our current time for many reasons. The pandemic, increasing loneliness in the sea of a technological world, etc. brings to the forefront the basic human need to belong. Since the beginning of time, belonging has been the foundation for the spiritual journey. In this message, Alan will explore belonging as a process, not an event. He suggests three “steps” in the process of belonging. To practice these steps implicates meaning for the individual and depth for community.

“With Our Ancestors Alongside Us”
Ali Peters

As Halloween and All Souls Day approach, we remember those who came before us in life and have passed on to whatever happens after death. Many cultures have ways to honor their ancestors. What would our ancestors– be they family or spiritual ones– hope for us? How might they guide us on our journey? This Sunday, you are invited to bring a picture or a small token or reminder of a loved one who has passed on. You will be welcome to place these at our altar during the service.
