Learning Objectives, Session 8: Memorial Rituals

In "Signs of Our Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Participants will:

  • Create a memorial ritual
  • Understand that death is a part of life
  • Understand that while Unitarian Universalist memorial rituals vary, all share the goals of helping us (1) acknowledge our loss and (2) celebrate the loved one's life—indeed, all life—as sacred
  • Discover rituals and signs their UU congregation uses when someone dies
  • Explore the concept of a person living on after their physical death in other people's remembered experiences of them, through a story of Jesus.
