Vitality Even in Death

Modified on: October 25, 2018

“I bless you in the name of all that is good and strong and beautiful…Always have the strength to live. Love life, and if despair enters your heart, look for me in the evenings when the wind is gentle and the owls sing in the hills. I shall be with you–“

(The parting words of the healer Ultima, to her protégé Antonio, in Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima)

In the finitude of our lives can be great blessing. The celebrations of autumn–Samhain, Halloween, All Souls’–help us embrace the joy of life and the possibility, difficult as it may seem, that even in dying we may share in life’s vitality.

Join in our celebrations this Sunday. Our 11:00 service will revel in Latin American traditions of the Day of the Dead. And after service, the potluck and festival of Boo at the UU will fill the halls and fellowship of our church. Come to celebrate. Come in costume! Come to bless our life.
