"On Death and Dying"

In the beginning days of November people around the world honor those whose lives have been lost with celebrations such as the Day of the Dead, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day.  These traditions remind us that death is an inevitable part of living, it is a transition each and everyone of us will make.  We will look at what death means in our lives, how we deal with loss, what we believe happens after we die, and we will allow space to be anxious while providing one another with comfort and care.
