Our 11AM Service will include a Child Dedication

Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum
Ancestry and heritage comes with blessings and struggles—our family makes up so much of who we are, and yet there are sometimes parts of our heritage we wish we didn’t have to own or incorporate into our world view. This service will discuss the struggles and blessings of heritage. Our 11am service will include a child dedication.

Cece Braun, Speaker
Cece Braun has been through a lot of grief in her life. Battles with infertility, pregnancy loss, beloved pet loss, loss of her father, and the biggest so far, the loss of her infant daughter. She often says, "If the only take away I have from these experiences is to help people be better at supporting each other in these times, I've done something." Admittedly Cece is a self-proclaimed relentless optimist - but watching people pull away when someone is hurting is hard. We need to understand as a culture that walking away from those in pain is not the solution. It causes more grief and adds isolation to the grief. Cece will talk about how to lean into and help a grieving friend, and how to ask for help yourself. And know that it's ok to not be ok.
 
There will be a video in the beginning of the service that talks about loss pretty bluntly - the words baby death, violence crime, accidents, suicides and natural disaster occur in the first 15 seconds. Cece and Cindy have reviewed it and feel that it is a message that's ok for all ages - but contact Cece if you'd like to preview it before the service.
