Talk on Sunday at First Unitarian Church

Jul 19, 2013 | 0 comments

First Unitarian Church SignThis Sunday I’m delivering the sermon at the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services at the First Unitarian Church of Albuquerque. They’ve titled my talk “Bouncing Back From Adversity” but I just call it “Rise Again.”

The sermon’s theme of resiliency is keyed to the refrain of the song “The Mary Ellen Carter,” written by Canadian song writer and singer Stan Rogers. I’ll be speaking about rising again physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Here’s the description the church put in their weekly email:

Have you needed to “bounce back” from a difficult period in your life?  Gail Rubin brings us a spiritual approach to resiliency.

Her unique role as the “Doyenne of Death” brings an appreciation for life that is both unique and urgent. Gail will provide a spiritual foundation on getting through the difficult times you may be facing.

Gail Rubin is a speaker, author and educator on “Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die.” Her latest book, “A Good Goodbye,” brings a fun, lighthearted, yet sensitive approach to end-of-life planning. She lives in Albuquerque, NM.

If you can’t make it in person, the talk will be videotaped and made available on YouTube. Watch this space for the link!
