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.
Room at the Table for All – July 15 – August 5, 2018
Summers are a time for relaxing and spending time with those whom we love. Whether your table is a backyard barbecue, a dinner out on the town, or an intimate evening in your home, who is at the table is as important as what is being served. In this series, we will take a look at who we invite to our table, collectively as well as individually and how we can add more leaves so that there’s room for all.
Audio recordings of the all six sermons in the previous series, Sacred Earth, Sacred Worth, are now available for listening and/or download on the Sunday Sermon Library page.
July 15, 2018 – I Love You, You Love Me. This is more than the theme song to a children’s television show, it’s how we’re to live our lives. On this Colorado Springs Pride Sunday, Rev. Rost will explore how Love is to be the invitation to the table both at All Souls and in our individual lives and what happens when we seek to “do no wrong” to our neighbor, moving beyond boundaries into reciprocal understanding.
July 22, 2018 – Beyond Saying Grace. Many of us were raised in traditions in which Grace was said before a meal was shared. What would happen if we treated grace not as a prayer to be mumbled, but a life to be lived? What would happen if we gave grace to those who have wronged or disappointed us? What happens when we withhold grace? How can we give grace to ourselves in our messy human lives? Rev. Rost will explore all these questions.
July 15, 2018 – No RE activities this week as everyone is invited to join Rev. Rost in the service on Pride Sunday. The nursery is open and there are purple doodle boxes available in the Great Hall for the doodlers.
