Upcoming Service

No Feeling Is Final

May 31, 2020

11:30am on Zoom

For many of us, one of the hardest parts of pandemic life is having to be patient and wait through unknowns, for who knows how long. Drawing upon popular music and the writings of Rainer Maria Rilke, Wildflower Community Minister Rev. Erin Walter will reflect on how we may endure such painful uncertainty while also embracing moments of joy and gratitude along the way.

SPECIAL NOTE: This service will include a period of prayer for those who have died during the pandemic, whether from COVID-19 or not. If you have lost someone during this time and would like to honor them, please email their name and information or obituary to erin.walter@austinymca.org.
