November 7: Unitarianism and All Souls – Rev. Christine Robinson

We’ll start this morning on a series of sermons explaining the 4-legged stool that is Unitarian Universalism which was formed by two theologies  (Unitarianism and Universalism) and two philosophies, Transcendentalism and Humanism. And, we will honor the Christian Holiday of All Souls…the day after All Saints, (which is the day after Halloween) on which all the ordinary souls of the world, our beloved deceased, are honored. So…bring some pictures of your beloved deceased to the service. You’ll have a chance to hold them up to your camera so we can all see them. It does seem that this should be a major holiday for the people of All Souls UU Church!

November 14: Beginning a New Conversation – Sonya Bergeron

Enter, rejoice and come in for a time for reflection and inspiration! When do you feel best about being a part of the All Souls UU Church community? What is it that you value about your affiliation with the Unitarian Universalist tradition? If you had three wishes for All Souls, what would they be? You are invited to participate in a conversation, where we will use the zoom tools of polls and chat, and we will have structured discussion. This isn’t a time for the usual Sunday sermon, but a time for conversation and connecting as a part of our worship and celebration.

November 21: Universalism -Rev. Christine Robinson

This will be the second sermon in our series on the two theologies and two philosophies that have shaped our faith. (Transcendentalism and Humanism will come in 2022)We will learn about the doctrine that all are saved, which has popped up and been suppressed many times in the history of Christendom, and the remarkable American Denomination, the Universalists, who first fought with and finally merged with the Unitarians, and we will have some good fun doing so.

November 28: How Democracies Die -Rev. Roger Butts

“In a democracy, there are no enemies. Rather there are fellow citizens with opposing views.”
Reverend Roger will explore a timely and important topic: the state of our democracy as 2021 comes to an end. It turns out two crucial ingredients in a high functioning democracies: strong democratic institutions and agreed upon norms. When those erode, often slowly and subtly, democracy is in deep trouble. Parker Palmer has five key ingredients of a healthy democracy, which has implications for our family, our work and our congregations beyond our democratic society.

How to Submit Joys and Concerns before Sunday

The sharing of Joys and Sorrows (which includes concerns) is now part of our online worship services. If you have a joy and/or sorrow to express, but you can’t join the service, you can submit it before Sunday, and we’ll include it in the service. To do that, email the church office with the subject: “Joys and Sorrows”.
