“Out of the Shadows and Into the Light — A Day of the Dead Tradition,” October 22, 2023

On Sunday, October 22, we warmly welcome back Verna Barrientos to talk to us about the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos in a sermon entitled “Out of the Shadows and Into the Light—A Day of the Dead Tradition.”

In our culture, death and grief are not talked about enough. Even though grief and loss are some of the challenges that we all will find ourselves at some point dealing with, all too often they are stigmatized and shoved into the shadows. Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a tradition where the dead come out to play and are brought into the light within the hearts, minds, and on the altars of many. Come learn more about this time-honored tradition during this service. Feel free to bring a photo, memento, or a picture in your head of a gone but not forgotten beloved family member, friend, loved one, or pet.

Consistent with the third Sunday Gallery View format, this is a Zoom-only service.
