We’re a different kind of religious community – compelled not by creeds, but by a common goal of global justice and personal wholeness. We celebrate the spiritual journey, and we believe that diversity is a strength. We strive to offer creative, meaningful opportunities for spiritual exploration and fulfillment. And we love visitors.
At All Souls we seek to include the full diversity of our broader community, including people with/from all socio-economic situations, gender identities, beliefs, ages, sexual orientations, mental and physical abilities, races and ethnicities. Therefore, we are examining all the ways in which we embody being a welcoming and inclusive community, and removing any barriers to this that currently exist that might prevent people from being fully welcomed into and involved in our church.
April 30, 2017 10:30 am – White Supremacy Teach-in
Join me on an uncomfortable adventure! In response to a leadership shakeup in the UUA due to calls of unjust hiring practices, All Souls is joining in with over 400 UU congregations who will shift our regularly scheduled Sunday morning worship to participate in a teach-in on racism and white supremacy. We will be participating with thousands of UUs around the country in this large-scale historic action. This call to action and worship comes from a growing network of UUs–religious professionals and lay leaders from both within and outside congregations–led by UUs of color and white UUs working together. Over the past few weeks, many have been responding to calls by UUs of color to look critically *within* our faith communities–including hiring practices, power brokers, and cultural habits–for the ways racism, sexism, and white supremacy live. In this service, through words and music, we will explore how we at All Souls can work to become more conscious of how white supremacy plays out in our lives and what we can do–particularly those of us who are white–to step out of privilege into the discomfort of challenging our own assumptions and committing to do the hard work of dismantling white supremacy.
