Every Friday this term at 12.30-12:45
A quiet reflective time, with poems, a two-minute silence, a reading of names to be remembered and a short meditation for loving kindness.
Led by the Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Team
Many of us know people in our personal family networks and through our work places who have been bereaved, who have died or who are dying. We hear the daily numbers of those who have died. We sense, and yet cannot comprehend, the human lives, loves and relationships of the people represented by those numbers.
The restrictions of the pandemic mean that familiar funeral rituals and patterns very likely have been disrupted or delayed. At a time of grief we might be separated and isolated.
These short meditative times for remembrance are based our experiences as Chaplains of finding ways for students and staff from different religious and philosophical world views to gather to remember and celebrate our peers and colleagues who have died.
If you would like to attend via Zoom, please join without video if you would find that more comfortable.
If you would like us remember by name a family member, friend or colleague please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We will remember anyone in your networks who has died at this time, from the virus or other illnesses. You are welcome to attend if you would find that helpful.
