Guest at Your Table (GAYT) is an annual intergenerational program sponsored by the UUSC to raise support for and awareness about key human rights issues. This year’s theme is Justice Across Borders, a subject very near and dear to this church. This program is an opportunity to celebrate grassroots partnership, support human rights, and learn about just four of these individuals – the “guests” in Guest at Your Table. The brochures and collection boxes are available for you at the RE table, so pick one up and help us continue this great tradition of hope and help!
Saturday, 12/1 is our annual All Souls Interior Work Day. We will be spiffing up the interior to welcome in the holiday season. Chores can be chosen to address your skills and interests.
Later that evening, All Souls serves the community as an official warming station for the Annual Parade of Lights and we want to provide a great impression for the guests who stop by to warm their bodies while enjoying a warm drink in our beautiful building. This is a great opportunity for us to show our community that we are a open and welcoming faith presence.
Are you struggling with loss? All Souls will be sponsoring a 4 week grief workshop meeting on Mondays, at 6:00 PM, November 19 through December 10. This workshop will explore ways to cope in the midst of loss of all types, whether through death of a loved one, loss of a relationship or job, etc.
The workshop will be $20 a session, with the full $80 due on the first night. Space is limited so please contact Rev. Rost to reserve a spot. Facilitators are Barb Elstun and Ruth Meinking. Find out more about the workshop here.
We are lucky to have Scottish dance master John Crumlin return again to All Souls to teach a free session of easy dances that can be done at our Solstice Party later in December. Everyone is welcome on Saturday afternoon, 12/15 starting at 1 p.m. in the Small Hall. Wear comfortable, soft-soled shoes. We will be reviewing dances taught last year and adding a new step or two.
The annual All Souls Winter Solstice Party will take place 6-9:30 PM on Friday, December 21. There will be a potluck meal. Music by the Rare Ould Times, members of the All Souls choir, and other guests will be featured, along with juggling, a winter ritual, and dancing. A donation of $15 is suggested.
