Celebration of Life, 11 am: "Letting Go of Roles and Identities."
We all have roles and identities in our lives that define us. These roles can shape how we are perceived and even how we perceive ourselves. They can be grounding, ordering, and centering. And, at times, they can be limiting. When and how can we set our roles and identities down for a moment? Minister Jennifer Nordstrom and Worship Associate Claire Callahan will explore the gifts that letting them go, even momentarily, might bring.

Sunday, October 18th:

A guest minister will present the "Celebration of Life " and a workshop with lunch included will be hosted by the Settled Minister Search Committee on "Uncategorical Thinking."
