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.

July 15 – 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.

Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.

July 22 – 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 29 – Come to the Table of Justice

One of the bedrock principles that Unitarian Universalist congregations promise to affirm and promote is justice, equity and compassion in human relationships. The source that all of us get super-excited about is the one about the “words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love. The table that welcomes us to explore justice is a powerful and important table indeed. And we are all invited to that table. Rev. Roger Butts will help us explore that table, with a special emphasis on the ongoing work to abolish the death penalty in Colorado.

Rev. Roger Butts is Staff Chaplain at Penrose St. Francis Health Services. His writings and prayer have been published in three anthologies by Skinner House Books, one of the publishing arms of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

June 24 – Bloom Where You’re Planted

According to Creation Spirituality, every one of us carries within us the capacity to be a mystic, to be creative, to be visionary, and to be an agent for positive change. It is our responsibility to say “here I am, send me” and to cultivate our capacity to benefit the earth and all it’s creatures. In this service, Rev. Rost will explore ways we can create things in this world that will cause positive ripples into the future.

August 5 – Making Room at the Table for Joy!

On this day, Rev. Rost celebrates her 10th anniversary as the called minister of All Souls. She will be sharing both where we’ve been as a congregation and her vision for where we can go, reminding us that joy is the juice that keeps us going.
