Rest in Peace: The Power of Ritual in Different Faith Traditions

Rev. Lynn Strauss
August 27

Sometimes it seems the most clarity we find as Unitarian Universalists comes during a Memorial Service as we contemplate death and its meanings—as we honor the life of those we love and learn the limits of human agency. Are there universal lessons learned only through grief, only through the acceptance of the end of a life? What does our liberal tradition teach us? What do other faiths offer in the face of death? Rev. Strauss will speak on these matters.
 
Special music by Corinne Blackford, violin, and Karl Irikura, viola; Andy Zatman on piano.
