Red River Radio Needs You!

The Pledge Drive is still happening at KDAQ and they may still need a few volunteers to work the phones on some shifts.

Volunteers who work a two-hour shift or more can help us to earn a day sponsorships for All Souls.

If you have any time to spare between now and 28 October 2011, please call Henry Edwards at 318-797-5154 and ask him to put you on the schedule.  Then when you sign in, be sure and write that you are working for All Souls.

The team will meet at 9:00 AM at the playground.

Shreveweave (the All Souls chapter of Interweave Continental) is participating as a team in the Shreveport Out of the Darkness Walk sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Brown Bag Discussion — 26 October 2011

Our October documentary theme continue with At The End of Slavery:  The Battle for Justice in Our Time.

This is a documentary from the International Justice Mission that will be screened on Wednesday, 26 October 2011, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM

If you missed the first showing of this film, here is another chance to see it.

In the same way that this picture of the slave ship Brookes galvanized thousands of people who had never seen or owned a slave, IJM hopes this powerful 30-minute film will awaken the world to the modern practice of human trafficking.

Join us to learn more about what you can do now to begin to end slavery around the world, here in the U.S. and even right here in Shreveport.


“The New UU” Adult Religious Education Class — 25 October 2011

On Tuesday (25 October 2011) at 6:30 PM, we will be exploring “Our Philosophy of Religious Education.”

“The New UU” class meets every Tuesday between 4 October 2011 and 22 November 2011 at 6:30 PM.

This class is also great for the not-so-new UU — we will offer an overview of Unitarian Universalist history, religious education, polity and governance and our tradition of social justice.

This week we will take a closer look at Religious Education in our faith tradition and in our congregation.

We provide you with a chance to learn more about our congregation and our faith, and to form closer relationships within a small group of fellow members and friends. All sessions are open to newcomers — although we do encourage you to take the complete series of classes when you can.

There will be no class on Tuesday, 15 November 2011 because of the Board and Council Meeting.

We will be polling the group to decide if our last session will be on 22 November 2011 (Tuesday of Thanksgiving week) or 29 November 2011 (Tuesday following Thanksgiving Week).
