Religious community dwells in one kind of ultimacy. For this service on Veteran’s Day weekend, we’ll remind ourselves of another kind of ultimacy, the ultimacy dwelt in by those who are in the military, who are driven to protect and serve in the most mortal circumstances. Using the great American folk song “Ashokan Farewell” and a letter from a Rhode Island soldier in the Civil War, we’ll explore the love and uncertainty that frame the experience of all those who serve in our armed forces, when sometimes what is required for the life of a nation is life itself.
Young people begin in their classrooms and worship in Chapel.
The worship theme is gratitude, led by Sr.High.Youth.
