Join us in an all ages celebration of the Mexican Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). A colorful altar and beautiful banners give expression to the lively character of this tradition. Members and friends are invited to bring mementos and photos of their loved ones who are no longer with us to place on the altar, and to light candles.
This morning we explore what it means to be part of a religious community that challenges and inspires us, that heals and holds us. New members will join the church, and all members will be celebrated for their years of devotion to UU Berks.
Memories can define us and set us free. They can also limit our ability to see other perspectives and keep us from being able to reframe our own narrative. Join us this morning as we reflect on how memory helps and sometimes hinders us in creating who we are as a people and as individuals. Our offering today will benefit the Reading Public Library.
Thanksgiving is a great time to renew the practice of gratitude. Come and celebrate the season with our Breads of the World ceremony and the story of Stone Soup.
Join with our interfaith friends and partners at Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom, The Islamic Center of Reading, The Wyomissing Church of the Brethren, and Washington Presbyterian for our Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service hosted this year by Immanuel UCC in Shillington. The Baha'is will deliver the homily, and participants from other religious communities will offer prayers, chants, and words of thanksgiving. A reception will follow.
