A Singing Meditation at NSUU
Helen Brandt and Judy Putnam
Times of peaceful and quiet contemplation are few and far between in our busy lives. Singing meditation, with its short, simple tunes and minimal words, provides an opportunity to open your own soul and connect with others. In the silence between songs we are given a space to be filled with what we have experienced in singing or listening together. Helen and Judy invite you to join us in this powerful meditation practice.

Rev. Edwin Lynn, Minister Emeritus of Northshore UU Church, believes that there are life lessons to be learned from the sea. Could the shifting sands of Ferry Beach help us to understand the hold of regret and resentment? Join those gathered in the grove for worship at our Ferry Beach Retreat to explore the sacred lessons sand can teach us.

Marty Langlois will share her experience as a nurse practitioner and now as a future consultant as a Death Doula. We are doulas of death. A birth doula provides support and guidance to the birth mother and the brand new life. End of life doulas have forged an innovative approach to the care of the dying by putting emphasis on the importance of relationship and accompaniment.
We should all treat the dying with dignity, but also with deference. Our elderly and our ill should be allowed this as much during death as after birth. Come learn and share about this most sacred process.

The Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church welcomes all to our church in the woods. How many of you were brought up UU? How many of you were raised Catholic, or in some other tradition, or with no religious background at all? How wonderful that we can all bring our different points of view. In this service, you will hear about my religious journey, and how I landed at NSUU.
