    May Ministry Theme: Authenticity

    Words to Live By:

    "Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen."  
    ~Brené Brown

    May 1  "Being Planted – A Beltane Service and Ritual"   
    Services at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leaders:  Barbara May and Suzanne Wingrove-Haugland
    Celebrate the seasonal festival of Beltane or May Day. Bring a bit of soil for an interactive blessing and planting of the newest addition to the Peace Garden.

    No ASL interpretation today.

     

    May 8   "The Sacred Mistake"  
    Services at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    We are none of us immune; we make mistakes.  In a world that seems increasingly unforgiving, how do we integrate our mistakes into our authentic selves?

     

    May 15   "An Authentic Faith: The Wisdom of James Luther Adams"
    One service at 10:00 a.m.

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    20th century Unitarian theologian James Luther Adams’s wisdom speaks to us as clearly today as ever.  Powerfully influenced by the lack of religious response to the Nazi emergence, his theology demands specificity from our liberal faith.  And authenticity. 

    A Big Sunday:  We welcome new members.  We celebrate Gery Elliott’s 40 years as All Souls’ accompanist.  And the Annual Meeting. 

    Good Neighbor Offering: The Flint (Michigan) Child Health and Development Fund through the Greater Flint Community Foundation.
    Greater New London Food Pantry item of the month:  Canned beans of any sort

     

    May 22  "Jesus Feeds the Crowd: Matthew 14: 13 – 21" 
    One service at 10:00 a.m.

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    One of the great stories of trust and generosity: there is enough for everyone.  The part of the story often forgotten: Jesus gathers up his strength while sitting in solitude. 

    SUNDAYFUNDAY follows with basket raffles, dinner parties,
    Sundae Bar, and more! An All Souls fundraiser!

     

    May 29  “The Choice to Let Ourselves Be True” 
    One service at 10:00 a.m.

    Worship Leader:  Carol Thompson
    On this Memorial Day weekend, we will look at Abraham Lincoln’s” Gettysburg Address” and “Second Inaugural Address” as he expresses his view of the Civil War.

Trapped Documentary Viewing
7:00 PM
Join All Souls to watch TRAPPED. This Sundance Film Festival Award-winning documentary traces the abortion rights saga from Wendy Davis's bold filibuster against Texas's awful abortion restriction law to today--when access to safe abortion for hundreds of thousands of women rests on the Supreme Court's shoulders, all through the eyes of the brave individuals to run and work at abortion clinics. Come learn how and why clinics are shutting down, because if we don't fight back, there may be no clinics left.
