When our bodies are wounded, the body kicks into high gear to begin the process of healing. From the common cold to more serious diseases or injuries, our body intuitively knows how to heal itself. When we are faced with trauma, grief and/or loss we need to pay equal attention to how our we heal emotionally and spiritually. The good news is that healing can, does, and will occur. As we seek to heal from a collective trauma, we'll look at ways to continue that process in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.

This is the entire service save the first 15-minutes, unfortunately. There is a live stream and also a videotape version coming soon. This version is 2:22 minutes but worth every second. Thank you Wendi for your bravery and love of what you do!

On June 28 at 2:33pm, We lost an incredible member of our congregation, Wendi Winters. Her service was too large to be held in our sanctuary with a 250 capacity. We moved the service to Maryland Hall which holds 726. There were over 1000 in attendance (standing room only); and another 1,000 watching our live-stream. "This is the biggest thing to happen in the life of our congregation to date," many said.. We have all been profoundly hurt and changed.
On this UUCA podcast, Rev. John Crestwell, shares his Eulogy to/for/of Wendi Winters, our hero. He wants all of us to do what Wendi would, "Not cower in tough times" and to "Be the change we wish to see," as Gandhi said. We will never forget you Wendi!
Below is the picture she took of Rev. John in 2008. It's a good picture!
