In ancient religions, people believed that the veil between the worlds was thinnest at this time of year. It was a time to remember and honor those who have gone before. In the spirit of remembering, we invite you to bring photos of those loved ones who have died to place on an altar of memory and love.
SUUF serves Sedona and the Greater Verde Valley. Its mission statement reads, “Our Fellowship is a place to grow in mind and spirit. We promote a loving, just, and sustainable world through service, learning and action.” For more information, call (623) 251-0177 or visit www.SedonaUU.org.
