Join us this Sunday morning at 11!

The service topic:

Leaps of Faith:

Views of the Afterlife

Rev. Carol Bodeau

What do you think happens after you die?  Do you believe in an afterlife, or not?  Perhaps you believe in reincarnation, or believe that we simply cease to be, returning to the earth as organic matter.  This month is a ‘leap month,” a February with 29 rather than 28 days, and when we talk about what happens after death, we are talking about leaps of faith.  Join us for this exploration of how different traditions view this profound mystery. 

Building Your Own Theology meets from 12:15-1:30pm *

If you need childcare for one of the adult RE offerings, please contact Wendy Weiss in advance.
