“Chasing Immortality: Would You Want to Live Forever?” – Memorial Weekend Service

ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon. Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.

We live in a death-phobic, youth seeking culture. From anti-aging face serums to cryogenics to theologies of eternal life to potential AI technologies that could keep the brain alive indefinitely, humans have chased immortality despite the enduring reality: If you are human, your life is finite.  Given this immutable fact (at least in 2023) how might we chase worthy goals such as right relationship and right action in our individual and communal spheres to leave an “immortal” legacy beyond death?  And how would we even structure a human life if it didn’t have a beginning, middle, and end?  Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, preaching, with Worship Associate Pia Driessen-Knittle. Special Latin musical selections from Andrez Alcazar and Austin Shaw.  MEMORIAL ALTARPlease bring a memento or photo that honors an ancestor.  ANDREZ’s last service – come and wish him well as he departs for his next chapter as a music educator.
