Adult Religious Education — 24 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (24 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.  Today’s class topic is “It’s Not Feminism if It’s Not Intersectional.”

Even as we express our gratitude for everything that first and second wave feminists have accomplished, we can still take the time to unpack the critique that these movements were largely for the benefit of white cisgender women (whether intentionally or obliviously).

History suggests a bit of both and both are symptoms of white privilege.

What does feminism mean today and who is at the table?  Join us.

17 March 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (17 March 2019) at 11:00 AM for “Dwelling in Peace … because It Matters” by Rev. Barbara Jarrell.

An important part of the task at hand is to learn how we speak with each other — and more importantly — how we listen to each other within our own walls.

Without this practice, we stand little chance of doing so in the wider world.

We are continuing this season’s focus on peace, social justice, and the interdependent web.

In this season of our church year, we honor our second principle (“justice, equity, and compassion in human relations”), our sixth principle (“the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all”) and our seventh principle (“respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”).

Religious education classes for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service.  Children and youth attend the first 15-20 minutes of the service and then are dismissed to class.

We will host another “Lunch and Learn” potluck with our Committee on Ministry after the worship service.

Adult Religious Education — 17 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (17 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.

This morning, we will watch a video of a TED Talk by Robb Willer — “How to Have Better Political Conversations.”

As a social psychologist, Willer has some ideas on how moral values might serve to bridge the ideological divide as opposed to widening it, and how we might talk to each other in ways that better promote mutual understanding.

Join us for the viewing and discussion.

Building and Grounds Work Day — 9 March 2019

Please join us on Saturday (9 March 2019) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our monthly building and grounds work day.

Most of the work for our church home is done by us — the members and friends of All Souls.

Weather permitting — we’ll have tasks both outdoors and indoors.

But rain or shine, we’ll have jobs for all ages and abilities.

Come join us for the whole time, or just an hour or so if that’s all the time you have.  Every little bit helps.

Can’t stay this Saturday — consider dropping off some snacks for the work crew.

Continuing this season’s focus on peace, social justice, and the interdependent web, what is ours to do as Unitarian Universalists in the effort to bend the moral arc of the universe toward justice?

In this season of our church year, we honor our second principle (“justice, equity, and compassion in human relations”), our sixth principle (“the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all”), and our seventh principle (“respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”).
