Please join the UUHA in a few weeks for a terrific online discussion!
Imagine There’s No Heaven:
A Humanist Approach to Mortality and Memorial with Rabbi Adam Chalom
Thursday, May 18th at 8:00pm Eastern/7:00pm Central.
If this life is the only life we know, how do we face that reality with courage? If loss is final, how can we celebrate life while acknowledging the depth of our grief? Our connections to other people give our lives meaning and are the key to addressing our mortality and the human need for memorial. Love transcends nature, weaving the living and the dead into the loving embrace of meaningful memory.
Join the UUHA for an opportunity to learn from Rabbi Adam Chalom, leader of Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation and a past contributor to our Journal of Religious Humanism. Adam will present and then join us for questions and conversation.
