Sunday Service — The Wisdom of the Elders
Sunday, October 15 / TIME 10:45 am
In American mainstream culture we have largely forgotten how to honor and cultivate the crone / sage wisdom and the need for young people to have elders who support, share, and offer perspective. Beginning with a meditation to call in ancestors, Senior Minister Lauren Tatarsky will share an interspiritual perspective from elders in several different wisdom traditions. Those elders who are present will also be invited to share their words of wisdom, prompted by the question “If you had one message to offer to the younger generation, what would it be?” Lastly, the kids are going to give us their words of wisdom too! Join us afterward in the Social Hall for refreshments and get to know your interfaith community.
