Grief, Gratitude & Transformation

Loading Events

While it is essential to pay attention to blessings that lift our hearts and remind us of the good, it is also necessary to make space for loss and pain. When buried, these can inhibit our ability to love and share. This service will explore the relationship between gratitude and grief and the opportunities for transformation that come from opening to the whole of life.

About our Guest: The Rev Pamela Rumancik is a poet, native plant enthusiast, and spiritual seeker retired from serving the Unitarian Church in Hinsdale, IL. Her spiritual roots reach back to Catholicism, and she is an initiate into the Sufi tradition. These deep liturgical origins inform her love of the arts as a vehicle for experiencing the Holy. Pam’s deepest commitments are to remembering the divine in each being and finding ways to open conversation with folks who see the world differently. Originally from Lorain, Ohio, she is the mother of three grown children and the wife of Rev. Karen Mooney. Pam and Karen live in Bull Valley, IL, share their home with Goldendoodles Parker & Ruthie, and spend a lot of time out in their garden.

Our theme for November is “The Gift of Generosity.”
