WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to gather Sunday, Sept. 15, at 10 a.m. "Our House" will be the topic.
This year the All Souls building is 43 years old. One of the tasks that the board has set for itself is a review of the building, a study that will include the entire congregation.
This service, led by Board President Harvey Nystrom, will be a reflection and a celebration of the place the members have called home in which memories of the events that have shaped their life together will be shared. The All Souls Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "Let This Be a House of Peace," by Jim Scott.
This week at All Souls Church elementary aged children and youth will participate in Radical Hospitality as they prepare coffee hour for the congregation. Unitarian Universalism is an active faith built on the foundation of seven principles.
These principles teach children that each and every person is unique and to be respected; that all people should be treated fairly; that all our churches are places where everyone is accepted and where we can learn together; that every person is free to search for truth and meaning; that all people have the right to think for themselves and vote on issues that concern them; that we must work for a world in which there is peace, fairness, and freedom; and that we should respect and care for all parts of the planet earth.
Religious education classes are offered for the following age groups: Early Elementary for grades 1-3, Elementary for grades 4-6, Jr. Youth for middle school students in grades 7 and 8, and Sr. Youth for senior high students grades 9-12. Nursery care is offered for infants and toddlers during Sunday morning adult services.
All Souls UU is a welcoming congregation and a Green Sanctuary located at 29 South St. across the road from the West Brattleboro Fire Station and Village Green.
