Join us this Sunday as we explore how we can find belonging among people with different beliefs and religious backgrounds, and the unexpected gifts that can emerge from multi-faith community. 
 All are welcome!

Our Classes This Week are as follows:
Sanctuary: Exploring Our Night-Time Dreams as a Spiritual Practice
Dr. Royce Fitts well lead us through a gentle, fun and enlightening conversation about our nighttime dreams. We will explore how our dreams are a wonderful healing and transformative resource for our waking lives. Royce is a minister, licensed marriage and family therapist and has passionately worked with dreams and dreamers for over 30 years.

Library: Let’s Talk About Death  
Join Rev. Hannah for a discussion about death, dying, and the grief (and possibility) that accompany them. Bring your questions, wonderings, and insights! 

Social Hall: Decorating Sugar Skulls 
Dia De Muertos/Day of the Dead has a long Mexican tradition. It is a time to remember loved ones who’ve passed away and to celebrate life. Children often eat sugar skulls and learn to respect the circle of life and not to fear death. Learn more and help celebrate this time as we decorate sugar skulls with Mark Vinich.
