We think of Halloween as a spooky holiday for kids and the young at heart, when we dress up in costumes and hold parties and make dark-humored jokes about life’s grimmer realities. But in the past, and for many people today, Halloween, or All Hallows, or Samhain, is a solemn time for honoring the ancestors and remembering our loved ones who have passed on before us. As the darkness of winter approaches, how can we attune to the old meaning of this time, and connect with the beloved dead?
We will not have Religious Education (Sunday School) this year, as our children have moved on or moved away. If you have questions about RE, please speak to Rev. Arthen or the Governing Board.
