Preserve Your Memories
Sheila Rae will be asking us to meet her at the hub of a metaphorical traffic “turn around” of multiple intersections-- those being Risk, Time, Memory, and Trust. Continuing in the theme for the month — that of risk -- she will take us into the process of risking the revelation of a memory by expressing it in some form of art. Using eight of her own art pieces she will share her state of mind and the process of creating art out of joy, fear, embarrassment, sadness, and danger. She used to care, she says, whether or not people understood or admired her art and poetry. Getting to that place of making art for herself has been very freeing. “For me, my art and poetry are forms of therapy. When I am wrapped up in that zone I am my deepest self.” Come experience a different sort of service—half in the sanctuary, and half in the Community Room alongside others expressing a memory using drawings and words. We will say yes to sharing ourselves for ourselves.
This is an intergenerational service. Wildflower’s children and youth will join other congregants in the Community room half of the service to engage in expressing their memories. Children 6 weeks to 4 years of age are welcome in our Nursery.
