In Psalm 139, the psalmist writes: In your book were written all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed. How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! I tried to count them – they are more than the sand; I come to the end – I am still with you. (vv. 16-18)
All our days are held in God’s eternal love. Yet, the pain of losing our loved ones is still heart breaking. Years later, their memory can bring us to tears. Grief is universal. We also live with the assurance of God’s unending love.
As we approach the holiday season, we invite everyone whose loved one has died, especially those who lost loved ones this past year, to come to our Service of Remembrance. Join us for this beautiful candlelight service on December 5 at 6pm in the chapel.
We will be cradled with soothing and comforting music, poetry, and the simple act of remembering our loved ones. Afterward, we will gather for dinner with conversation and sharing. Please RSVP to Deb Wagner if you are staying for dinner.
