A November to Remember begins

~November to Remember~
This month, we at Grace are naming and claiming the sadness we feel that the Church, both global and local, is no longer the Church of our childhood. We grieve that the community, the building, and the time we spend together as a congregation is not the same as what we have treasured in our memories for a few years or a few decades.
Church is not dead. However it is ever-changing, perhaps at a pace and in a way for which we have not prepared ourselves. This memorial is a safe and visible way to mourn the Church that shaped our Faith, and the activities, worship events, and fellowship gatherings that have changed so much. In acknowledging our grief through this month, we ready ourselves for the season of Hope that is Advent.
