    September 2017
    Monthly Ministry Theme:
    The Inherent Worth and Dignity of Every Person


    Words to Live By:
    “Who doesn't want to know that we notice them and value them? And who might respond to us better when they feel that they matter? It probably cannot be overstated – it matters...that people matter.” 
    – Steve Goodier

     


    September 24 "Your Best Self" (9:30 & 11:15)
    Worship Leader: Rev. Caitlin O'Brien

    We often apply our first UU principle, “the inherent worth and dignity of every person,” to discussion of how we should treat others.  It is also an invitation to care for our own worth and dignity.  Together, let’s consider how disciplined spiritual growth can help us to bring our most dignified self to the table, even – or perhaps especially – when the table is a mess.

    October 8  "The Power of the Tongue"
    Worship Leader:  Suzanne Wingrove-Haugland

    From the ancient concepts of blessing and cursing to our modern day Internet: examining the power of words and focusing our intentions to create the world we most desire.

    Suzanne Wingrove-Haugland is a writer, a shaman and has been a member of All Souls since 2004.
     

    October 15  White Supremacy Teach-in Part II
                         ONE SERVICE AT 10 A.M.              

    Worship Leaders:  Reverends Carolyn Patierno & Caitlin O’Brien

    The member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association are once again being encouraged to reckon with the systems of white supremacy in our country and indeed, in our own hearts.  All Souls participated in April and this service will build on the work we’ve already done.

Quiet Time with Singing Bowls
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
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.

Craft Circle

We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
