Sun Oct 31, 10:30 AM – A Service for Halloween
Our Halloween observances have roots in the ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain which marked the end of the “lighter half” of the year and the beginning of the “darker half.” During Samhain, the ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the spirit world became thin, allowing both friendly and evil spirits to mingle with us. In this family service, we will offer thoughts and activities in honor of this day. As protection against whatever evil spirits might lurk about, all are encouraged to come in costume. (Belief in this ritual is optional to attend – honoring those who have died and/or learning about this tradition and/or considering it “fun” are acceptable ways of viewing this celebration. Respect of others is embraced.)
