WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Church Unitarian Universalist invites all to worship on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m. The Rev. Barbro Hansson will introduce the theological theme for October, "Calling/Vocation."
Parker J. Palmer in his book, "Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation," writes "Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood."
Rev. Hansson will ask "What does it mean to be called into a vocation? Is it a privilege or is there a clear call deep within every individual?"
Former All Souls’ member Laura Lawson Tucker will join Rev. Hansson in the service. She will reflect on her own calling.
The All Souls’ Occasional Pickup Band will play their rendition of Van Morrison’s "Moondance" and the All Souls’ Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing an ancient prayer, "Cause Us, O Lord," by Ron Nelson, as well as "The Road is Calling," a round by John Krumm.
The religious education program meets every Sunday. Programs are designed to be dynamic, active, multi-generational experiences of worship, service and learning. Themes throughout the year will touch on UU principles, social justice, diversity, world religions and the environment. All classes incorporate quiet times of reflection, movement, play, art and music.
Faith Formation is offered to children in grades 1 through 9. Children stay with their families in the chapel for the first part
