This coming Sunday, (insert date), the Love Will Guide Us group will talk about Unitarian Universalist rituals and beliefs about death. As part of this session, children will participate in a Ritual of Love and Remembrance, in which we will emphasize that people who have died live on in our hearts and memories, as well as through the love they have shared.
We will create a remembrance together. Your child is invited to bring a picture or other item that helps them remember a loved one (human or animal) who has died to place on our table.
If you have any questions about how this topic will be handled, or what else we will do during our time together, feel free to contact (insert co-leader(s) and contact information).
Yours in Faith,
