“Rituals, Memories, and Stories”

Intern Minister Susan Panttaja and Worship Associate Kathleen Craig

In the aftermath of loss, whether of a loved one, property, a job, or a dream, we humans seek comfort and meaning through performing rituals and by sharing memories and stories about times gone by. Through examining and sharing our memories, we may even be able to reframe the past in ways that bring about comfort, healing, forgiveness, and hope. This morning, we lift up rituals, memories, and stories that see us through grief to growth.
