“The Sacred Necessity of Grieving”
Speaker: Tree Moore, Pulpit Guest
Music: Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director
Since everything we love we will eventually lose, grieving our losses is a part of life. Member Tree Moore will share insights she has learned about the incredible healing power of grief, take a look at human beings’ resistance to sorrow and explore Francis Weller’s “Five Gates of Grief.” She will share ideas about how to support a grieving process through simple rituals that we may not have considered before.
Tree, originally a UP-er, raised her family here in Milwaukee. After years of parenting, and working professionally as a psychotherapist, she ran away from home, settling on an island in Puget Sound. For the last 20 years she has been involved in leading non-violent worships in a men’s prison, getting her hands into the muddy world of alternative building and creating a project of gleaning fruit trees for the folks at the food bank. Although Tree only became a member of the church in October, she has been visiting her three daughters and three grandsons for years here in Milwaukee, and while here, frequently attending First Church.
First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee is a progressive church for spiritual community, social justice, and intellectual freedom, active in Milwaukee since 1842.
