Poet Rainer Maria Rilke invites us to
be patient to all that is unsolved in our hearts. Perhaps if we cultivate a practice of unending curiosity with our questions, we can live in peace with the uncertainty around us.
In this service we honor all those who have ‘mothered’ us through the joys and sorrows of our lives. In their names we will celebrate a Flower Communion. We will also commission the members of our UUFHC Compassion Team.
I am a human being who is openly and passionately curious about many things. This human is also a musician, spiritual guide, chaplain, pastor, lover and sojourner of life, creation, and creative process.
As we remember those who sacrificed their lives and their loved ones in war, we also take the time to hear our faith tradition’s call to peacemaking. After so many decades of fighting, have we forgotten how to pray for peace?
