    Words to Live By:
    The love of our neighbor in all its fullness simply means being able
    to say, “What are you going through?”  ~Simone Weil


    March 18: The Eye of the Storm
    Two Services: 9:30 A.M. & 11:15 A.M.
    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    I’m going to have just returned from a UU College of Social Justice’s service trip to Houston, helping with hurricane recovery.  UUCSJ is committed to infusing service with learning and this learning will focus on eco-racism as well as the challenge that is global warming.  I’ll reflect on my experience and what I learned about both. 

    Good Neighbor OfferingCosecha:  Advocating for Immigrant Justice.   See page 8 of our newsletter for more details.

    In lieu of our typical Food Pantry Offering and in honor of Women’s History Month, we’ll be taking up a collection of menstrual supplies to be given to the Visiting Nurses Association and the New London Public Schools.  Donate tampons and pads that will be distributed freely to women with little access. 

    March 25:  The Complicated World That is “Me, Too
    Two Services: 9:30 A.M. & 11:15 A.M.
    Worship Leaders / Preachers:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno & Emmeline Franklin

    Women’s inherent worth and dignity has rarely been held at the center of the wider culture’s care and concern, so much so that harassment, sexual assault is normative.  The narrative is beginning to shift, a revolution afoot … and in some ways it’s confusing.  Rev. Carolyn and Emmeline will consider the complications as well as the hope for how this culture shift will change everyone’s lives for the better.

    March 30 - Good Friday Vigil
    Noon - 3:00 p.m

    Alternating scripture, poetry, and silence we will move through the Good Friday story.  The vigil helps us to delve deeply into the ancient themes that deliver us to Easter Sunday.   All are welcome to drop in for as long or as brief a stay as you wish.

Quiet Time with Singing Bowls

The tones produced by Himalayan singing bowls can be a unique entry into a place of calm, peace, healing, and harmony. .
If you have never heard several singing bowls played together, you have never really heard singing bowls.

Please consider joining John Irwin, who has been playing singing bowls for over three years, each Tuesday evening at All Souls from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a period of peace and relaxation.

All are welcome.
