24 November 2019 All-Ages Worship Service and Thanksgiving Feast

Please join us on Sunday (24 November 2019) at 11:00 AM for our annual Thanksgiving ritual and feast with Rev. Barbara Jarrell.

This is a holiday with a tortured history that needs recognition and reckoning.  At the same time, we need time and space to recognize those people, events, and everyday gifts in our lives that cause us to feel gratitude.  It is another part of the great paradox in which we live our lives.  Join us as we celebrate this gratitude and sit down to a meal together.

We begin with a shorter service in the sanctuary and end with a procession to the social hall for a ritual of gratitude and our potluck feast.

If you are unable to prepare or pick up anything, please come anyway.  There will be plenty.  And we need people to help with set-up and clean-up which is just as good as bringing food.

27 October 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (27 October 2019) at 11:00 AM for “Returning to All Souls:  A Celebration of Dia de Los Muertos  (The Day of the Dead)” with Lee Spruell and Virginia Villarreal.

We are thankful and honored to welcome back Lee Spruell to our sanctuary, who will once again share his family’s celebration of the Day of the Dead, as has been celebrated in Mexico for years.

You are invited to bring a picture of a departed loved one to place on the ofrenda.

Although the theme is death, the Day of the Dead is not considered a solemn or spooky holiday.  It is not Halloween.

In many traditions, this is the time of year to feel closer to those who have departed this world, and the celebration is for the expression of our love and joy at having known them.

20 October 2019 All-Ages Worship Service

Please join us on Sunday (20 October 2019) at 11:00 AM for “That All Souls Shall Grow into Harmony with the Sacred” with the children, youth and adults of All Souls.

For the past 8 weeks, our children and youth have been delving more deeply into the words we say every week in our Unison Affirmation.

Why do we say that love is our doctrine and service is our prayer?

Why is it important to seek knowledge in freedom?

And what does it mean to us to grow into harmony with the sacred?

What is sacred?

And by the way, who wrote those words in the first place?

Come and hear a few of the answers, and even more questions!

Our children and youth will also be introducing upcoming service projects and your chance to participate.
