Upcoming Worship Services
Roddy Biggs “Suicide: Searching for Answers”
Suicide affects us all, but what is it? Why do people sometimes feel the need to take their own lives? How do our beliefs about and understandings of suicide affect the way we respond to suicide? Join us as we attempt to understand more about the very nature of suicide and what causes it. As a liberal faith community, we can come together to help change the damaging narrative of suicide that has been created by society and by religious communities for centuries. Together we can make a difference; we can change the story and save lives.
