Part of being human is receiving and giving love to many different people in our lives. Part of deep love is the grief we feel
when we lose those people. This Sunday in worship we are remembering the Saints of Edgewood who died in the last year: Sharon King, Mary Tuttle, Joy Slabaugh, and Michael Schacherbauer. Their legacy is strong and our grief runs deep. It is a blessing to say their names and honor the love we shared. Even as we name these beloved Edgewood members, surely our hearts will open to the other loved ones we miss. Join us with an open heart for this moving service.
Peace,
Pastor Liz
