Unlike American culture that continues to deny death, Mexicans celebrate and honor the passing of their loved ones. El Dia de los Muertos is a festival celebrating the reunion of dead relatives with their families that takes place on November 1st and 2nd. Join us as we delve into the cultural awareness of death that is The Day of the Dead.
Dr. Kriss Kevorkian is a Thanatologist, educator, writer, international speaker on issues of end-of-life care, environmental grief and ecological grief. Kriss has a private practice helping clients and their families navigate end-of-life issues and she facilitates a Death Cafe in Gig Harbor.
Anyone is welcome to attend a monthly board meeting. We do ask that, since it is usually a potluck in a member's home, you contact a board member ahead of time to find the location of meeting and get more information. If you want to get something on the agenda please contact Judy Arbogast 253-225-1977 in advance so that your concern or interest can be heard.

As Laurel said to Hardy, "Good news! The tire is only flat on the bottom." Each and every day we're presented with multiple opportunities to make choices about how to "read" events, how to respond, and how to best move forward in our lives. This thirsty sermon stares hard at a 16-ounce tumbler holding 8 ounces of delicious water and wonders which half we see.
John Hover will be providing music for the service.
Joseph Bednarik serves as the Assistant in the Pulpit at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend. His day job is as Co-Publisher of Copper Canyon Press, a nonprofit publisher dedicated to poetry.

As part of PUUF’s continuing focus on the celebration of diversity, the Welcoming Congregation Committee is pleased to host a panel discussion with staff and youth from the Oasis Youth Center in Tacoma. Our guests will help us appreciate this important and valuable resource by sharing their personal stories and the different ways Oasis serves queer youth in the Tacoma area. Following the panel, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions and also to participate with our guests in an interactive activity.
Fiscally sponsored by the Pierce County AIDS Foundation, Oasis is a youth-adult partnership in which young people and adults come together for shared teaching, learning and action. Its mission is to “transform the lives of queer youth by creating a safe place to learn, connect, and thrive.”
The meditation group is meeting at Betty Jean Hedstrom's. For more information call Betty Jean at 253-432-4417 or Share at 253-858-8414. We meet every Wed. from 3:30 to 5:00ish.
The group is guided by Dave Allen who has practiced Vipassana meditation for over 40 years. Participants sit, as comfortable, for two 25 minute meditation sessions with discussion interspersed.
