November Ministry Theme:
Gratitude

So while I think of it, let me paint a thank-you on my palm
for this God, this laughter of the morning, lest it go unspoken.

The Joy that isn't shared, I've heard, dies young.   
~Anne Sexton

 

October 26
"Blue Boat Home"
Worship Leader: Rebecca Bryan
Join with other Souls as we remember those who have died. Whether this year, or many moons ago, our love goes on. Bring along friends or family, come together as we sing, reminisce and affirm.
 

Wednesday, October 29: 5:30 Children’s service & 7 p.m.

Samhain Vesper Service - Huntington Street Chapel
Samhain is the Pagan festival of Celtic origin that honors the harvest and the New Year. It is also a time for honoring our dearly departed. All of these themes are woven together for a lovely evening of reflection and celebration. Vespers is traditionally an evening service that is contemplative in nature. With a combination of story, poetry, and music we are able to glean the wisdom of Samhain while we allow the beauty of the service to have its way within our hearts and minds. You are invited to bring a photo of a dearly departed loved one for the altar. The 5:30 service is especially crafted for children and families.

November 2
“Through the Desert"

Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
I
’ll have just returned from the BorderLinks trip to Arizona and Mexico.  “Desert experiences” bring us to new perspective and understanding.  I’ll be at the start of my own and look forward to sharing a bit of what I’ll have learned about our kin who risk their lives to come to our country. 

American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by Elizabeth Bull.

Our annual Child Dedication will take place at each of the services.  If you’d like to dedicate your child, please contact Reverend Caitlin:  associate.minister@allsouls.net
 

November 9
“Coming to Life”

Worship Leader: Rebecca Bryan
This summer a UU worship service in New Orleans was interrupted by a vocal group of pro-life advocates. What does it mean when our principles are applied in real life situations? One mother's perspective.

 

November 16
“Moving Toward ‘Where’ and ‘Whose' "

Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
Diana Butler Bass is a theologian who carefully considers the future of religion.  In her book Christianity after Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening, she lays out a vision of a “renewed faith” – and that renewed faith very much embodies a Unitarian Universalist sensibility.   On this New Member Sunday, we’ll consider what it means in the 21st century to be a member of a faith community.

Good Neighbor Offering beneficiary is the Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund, which provides college funds for promising New London high school students who embody his vision, ethic, and hope. See the newsletter for more information.
 

November 23 – Multigenerational Thanksgiving Service
Worship Leaders:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno, Reverend Caitlin O’Brien, and Ministerial Intern Rebecca Bryan
A service during which we hold up all for which we are thankful.  
You are invited to bring a loaf of homemade bread to share for our annual bread communion. 

The UU Service Committee’s Guest at Your Table kick-off. See the newsletter for more information.
 

November 30, one service at 10 a.m.
 "Living from a Place of Love"

Barbara May, guest speaker    
Sometimes it's difficult to maintain one's own stance of positivity and love in a world that seems overwhelmed with negativity. We forget that what we give is what we receive. So, this Thanksgiving weekend, with gratitude, let's remember to stand on the side of love.
