The 20th Century Unitarian Universalist theologian James Luther Adams said:
Religious liberalism holds that the resources (divine and human) that are available for the achievement of meaningful change justify an attitude of ultimate optimism.
Do we truly have right and reason to be hopeful?
Our children and youth will present some reasons.
This service will also include a brief memorial tribute to Carol Graywing (former member of All Souls who had moved to Seattle several years ago to be closer to her daughter and grandson, and who also passed away in September 2018).
Carol was very active in the women’s movement of the 1970’s and 1980’s along with the women’s movement within our own denomination as well.
Throughout her life, she remained a powerful voice for women, a thoughtful poet, and a seasoned leader of worship with a wonderful sense of reverence and drama. Carol’s obituary can be found here.
This Sunday is her daughter and Carol’s daughter Lauren Gaddy has bought flowers to be placed on the altar of every Unitarian Universalist church where Carol held membership — San Francisco, Little Rock, Shreveport, and Seattle. She has also has asked that we remember her in the service. Knowing the depth of this loss to our national faith community, we are honored to honor her.
A newcomer session will follow the service — all interested persons are welcome to attend
We will see a video about our faith and hear your stories as you are comfortable sharing them along with answering any questions you may have about Unitarian Universalism and about membership in our congregation.
