11:00 AM Sunday, 21 August 2011 — Rev. Barbara Jarrell is back in the pulpit. Her sermon is “Unfamiliar Alliances.”
During the worship service, the children and youth will have a car wash to raise money for the playground fun. Drop off your car before church, and have it washed by very conscientious and thorough young people supervised by very conscientious and thorough supportive adults.
Steve Caldwell and Abbas Moussaoui will be coordinating this car wash, so talk to them or contact Susan Caldwell if you can help.
11:00 AM Sunday, 14 August 2011 — Our annual Artist Sunday worship service.
This is one of our most beloved services of the year. The service is an annual celebration of the arts in which each element of the worship service is an artistic performance of some kind — song, dance, poetry, drama, instrumental music or something else entirely.
We will also have a visual arts show and sale in the Religious Education Wing after the service, and a special art project for the children and youth. Expect the unexpected, and don’t miss this service that never fails to amaze!
11:00 AM Sunday, 31 July 2011 — “You Don’t Look Like Anyone I Know” by Susan Caldwell (All Souls Director of Religious Education). Susan’s sermon is based on Heather Sellers book of the same name that explores the rare and fascinating disorder of prosopagnosia (face blindness) and the spiritual insights that one women’s journey may offer the rest of us.
Starting on Thursday, 23 June 2011, UU World will also publish a comprehensive guide to our GA coverage, which will be updated daily. Highlights of UU World’s coverage will be publicized on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
This meeting was held in response to the 26 January 2011 attack on John Skaggs at the Sand Bar in downtown Shreveport. Police and witnesses said William Payne attacked Mr. Skaggs with the blunt end of a pool cue, causing serious facial injury to his eye socket and jawbone area and rendering him unconscious. Mr. Payne was charged with attempted second-degree murder and committing a hate crime (Mr. Payne was making physically threatening statements regarding attacking the victim based on his sexual orientation). Mr. Skaggs suffered at least 14 facial fractures and had metal plates mounted in his face.
