All Ages Worship (28 January 2024)

Please join us on Sunday (28 January 2024) at 11:00 AM for “What a Difference:  Reflections from Sally Wood and Jennifer Russell.”

We will be meeting in the sanctuary for this worship service.  Please join us in person at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 9449 Ellerbe Road, Shreveport LA  71106 if you are able to do so.

Our service will also be livestreamed on Facebook Live here if you cannot attend in person.

The risk for Caddo, Bossier and De Soto Parishes (the Shreveport metro area) are all low — the CDC does not recommend mandatory masking for all indoor events in “low” risk areas.

See the CDC website and the COVIDActNow website for more details.

Starting on 13 November 2022, masks will be optional indoors at All Souls.

Anyone who prefers to keep wearing a mask is welcome to do so and attending worship through livestream video is also an option.

We will still have KN95 masks available in the foyer for anyone who needs one.

We continue to recommend that you stay home if you have any symptoms, and that you keep up with all available vaccinations and boosters.

Please use this link to evaluate the current COVID risk for the Shreveport-Bossier City metro area as you make your decisions regarding masking and other COVID preventive measures while attending All Souls.

We no longer require proof of vaccination against COVID for all attendees ages 11 and up for indoor events.

However, we do strongly encourage that anyone attending our worship services or other indoor events at All Souls be vaccinated against COVID.

Please use good judgment and stay home if you have any symptoms.  Even those who have tested negative for COVID can later test positive.

Our January 2024 give-away-the-plate recipient is Volunteers for Youth Justice.

And you can contribute to All Souls using this online resource.

Online and In-Person Adult Religious Education — 28 January 2024

Please join us on Sunday (28 January 2024) for our adult religious education class at 9:00 AM.

Our adult religious education class is now a dual-platform class — meeting in person in the church social hall and also on Zoom.

For this Sunday, we will listen to part 1 of a podcast from the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) titled “Nationalism vs. Patriotism: What’s the Difference?

This is a discussion featuring NAE President and Pastor Walter Kim and Paul Miller (Southern Baptist and Professor of Practice of International Affairs — Georgetown University School of Foreign Service).

Join us as we listen to Part I of this discussion between two Evangelical Christians who express their concern about the rise of Christian Nationalism in the evangelical movement.

They are part of a small but growing segment of that movement who worry that this trend is a turning away from the teachings of Jesus.
