All Ages Worship (18 February 2024)

Please join us on Sunday (18 February 2024) at 11:00 AM for “Let There Be Peace on Earth” by Rev. Joy Walker.

We are happy to welcome Rev. Joy Walker back to our pulpit this morning speaking in advance of Sunday afternoon’s showing of “A Prayer for Compassion.”

Joy’s Message: “May we learn to live in a world that will bring peace to all sentient beings.”

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 February 2024 give-away-the-plate recipient is the North Louisiana Civil Rights Coalition (NLCRC ).

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

Please join us on Sunday (18 February 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.

Last week, the adult class watched “Why Awe is Such an Important Emotion” — a video featuring Dacher Keltner (author of Awe: The New Science of Everyday Wonder and How It Can Transform Your Life).

The adult class has decided to read his book together and all are welcome to join the class.

For this week, we will be discussing the Introduction.

We have 8 paperback copies of the book available at the church and we can always order more as needed.

Cost is a donation of $15.00 but please don’t let money be an obstacle to having the book if you want to be part of the group.
