April 5: Liberation is Self Isolation

This month’s theme is what does it mean to be a people of liberation? It’s an ironic theme given that virtually all of us are in state-mandated stay at home orders. However, history shows that some of the most creative works were done in situations of quarantine and constraint. Join us via Zoom as Rev. Nori explores how we can be free to be our truest selves during this time of constraint.

Religious Exploration – Passover- We are liberated together and liberation takes time. This week in virtual RE, we will be learning about Passover, a Jewish Holiday. We will listen to a story about Passover and explore the “Passover Plate,” asking the Four Questions.

April 12: Easter in Our Homes

This unique Easter cantata will seek ways that we can be brought together as community even as we each are separate. Through narration, stories and music we will explore how we can celebrate the rebirth of hope and new life even in this time of anxiety amidst the unknown.

Religious ExplorationEaster Sunday Intergeneration. Today will be an intergenerational Sunday and we will not host RE this week. We invite the whole family to Zoom with us at 10:30 AM for worship service with Rev. Nori. This day will have contributions from some of our All Souls families from their homes!

April 19: Lest We Forget

Join us on this somber day as we commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. Rev. Nori will explore the legacy of the Holocaust and ways we can learn from it in the shadow of its desolation and death. Members of Eclectic Voices will share poetry of the Holocaust.

Religious ExplorationEarth Day – Saving the Earth is saving us. We’ll be focusing on our 7th Principle, “The Interdependent Web” as we explore Earth Day! We’ll be creating an Earth Day Bingo Card to work on during the week. Prizes will be mailed to those who get a bingo!

April 26: On the Road to Peace and Liberation

Rev. Roger Butts writes: One of my favorite stories about becoming a person of liberation and peace, involves Henri Nouwen. In 1965, he was at the Menninger Institute, comfortably preparing for a life in ministry. One morning, between sleep and the day, he heard the cry, over and over: whose side are you on, whose side are you on?

He got up and went to Selma to join in the marches. In the process, he met a young man from Mississippi, Charles, and Charles gave him new eyes to see, new ears to hear, and a new heart to feel. He mid-wifed him, in other words, on the road to liberation and peace.

And the message remains, after all these years: be not afraid, be not afraid, be not afraid.

Join Rev. Roger Butts, our affilitated community minister and chaplain at St. Francis Health Services in the telling of this story and what it says as we all walk the road to liberation and peace.

Religious Exploration – Ramadan- Remembering What Matters Most. For our last holiday celebration this month, we’ll learn about Ramadan, a Muslim holiday. We will explore this celebration through story and an activity, creating a Good Deed Tree.

Youth Group – YRUU meets every Sunday from 6:30-7:30 PM on Zoom. During our virtual time, we’ve teamed up with 4 other small Youth Groups from Colorado, Utah, and Illinois! Please join us to connect with other UU Youth while being led by Youth Advisors in different congregations as well!
