What Is Remembered, Lives
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
October 31, 2021
Beth Karow, with Rev. Kevin Tarsa
All Hallows Eve, Día de Muertos, All Souls, and All Saints days invite us each autumn to remember our ancestors and our beloveds who have died. These tender days on the way to winter even open a window to working on our relationships with those who have gone before us.
In a service steeped in ritual and music, we will remember with honesty, gratitude, and hope.
