Taking it one world at a time: A Sermon for All Souls

When asked what he thought the afterlife would be like, the sage of Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau answered, “I’m taking it one world at a time.” As we explore how we relate to our inevitable finitude, we’ll consider how we might live deliberately in a somewhat random world without over-attachment to the past or a sense of anxiety or over-expectation about the future. Isn’t living deliberately in the one tangible world we have challenging enough for us humans? ~ We will be creating an ancestors’ “virtual altar” to honor Día de los Muertos, Samhain and All Souls’ Day. We encourage our members to submit a photo, memento/dedication or artifact that honors an ancestor or your ancestry.
