It’s Monster Month, so this week we will meet the hag, the ugly old woman character that embodies negative ideas about aging. But our other October theme is courage and so we will bravely explore the process of becoming an elder. Our service will contain ceremonies of child dedication because, after all, we all start out young. If we’re lucky, we are also given the opportunity to age. Despite its challenges, growing older has unique purposes and gifts.
