16 February 2020 All-Ages Worship Service

Please join us on Sunday (16 February 2020) at 11:00 AM for “Who Are You in the Story?  Learning from the World’s Great Religions” with the children, youth, and adults of All Souls.

Human beings all over the world are storytelling people.

Often the stories can teach us not only about the people who have told and heard them for centuries but also about ourselves and our own lives.

Join us to hear some of the stories and find the treasures inside of them calling to each of us.

Adult Religious Education — 16 February 2020

Please join us on Sunday (16 February 2020) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education classes.

The Wisdom of the World’s Religions — Susan Caldwell (Facilitator):

This week, “The Baha’i Faith: A Commitment to Diversity”

Numbering right around seven million members around the world, the Baha’i faith is not the largest in numbers, and yet it is the second most geographically widespread religion. Only Christianity has spread further, and it is 300 times larger. How has this faith found a home with so many different people in so many places? Join us to learn more.

Note about The New UU Class:
Bennett Upton is hoping to start another “New UU” class very soon, but is taking a short break for the sake of building the numbers.  Whether you are brand new to Unitarian Universalism, or not so new but wanting a refresher or to fill in some gaps, this is a great class for you.  It covers the history and theology of our faith tradition and congregation, and lets you explore how all of that fits with your theology and personal perspective.

If you are interested in being part of the class when it starts again, email Bennett or call or text him at 318-553-7321.

Adult Religious Education — 9 February 2020

Please join us on Sunday (9 February 2020) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education classes.

The Wisdom of the World’s Religions — Susan Caldwell (Facilitator)
This week, “Taoism: The Origins of ‘Go with the Flow.'”

From the Tao Te Ching: “Whatever is flexible and flowing will tend to grow, whatever is rigid and blocked will wither and die.” This morning we’ll take a look at one of the oldest religions, and one that influences many practitioners of other religions including Unitarian Universalism, and no religion as well.

Note: because of the Art Market event, we will meet this week in the Middle/High School Room.

Building and Grounds Work Day — 8 February 2020

Please join us on Saturday (8 February 2020) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our monthly building and grounds work day.

For this month — new thrones for our All Souls royalty!

We have 7 new toilet seats for the bathrooms and we need folks with tools to undertake this most vital of missions.

We also need to clean and sanitize all the tables and chairs in the social hall and classrooms, and anything else we see that needs doing — outside (weather permitting) and inside.

Beyond basic cleaning and yard mowing, all of the work of maintaining our congregation’s physical space falls to us — the members and friends of All Souls.

We have tasks for all ages and abilities and you are welcome to help whether you can stay the entire time or for just an hour or so.

Can’t stay?  Consider dropping off some breakfast or snacks for the work crew.
