Will Religion Survive and Do We Care?
Rev. Michael Brown
Many voices in our culture are questioning whether religion has a valid place in human life. How we might answer these questions will depend on our own background and personal experience as well as our analytical skills. Our answers may also depend on what we think religion is. How does our church fit into the broader picture? That's an enticing question.
The choir will sing.

Dia de los Muertos
Rev. Michael Brown and Amy Popp, CRE
Today's service will draw on the centuries old tradition of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead as practiced in Mexico and other Latin American countries. We will welcome Mariachi Campiranos, a trditional mariachi band whose music contains both joyful and mournful elements. Dia de los Muertos has a playful aspect, including special bread, sugar treats, and artistic expressions around the theme of death. You are invited, if you wish, to bring a photo or some other item that reminds you of your loved one, to be placed on our ofrenda during the service.
