WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to gather Sunday, Sept. 22, at 10 a.m. This week’s message is "Autumnal Equinox: The Waning of the Light."
To honor the autumnal equinox, All Souls’ minister, the Rev. Barbro Hansson, will reflect on the importance of nurturing a deep connection with nature and all of earth’s living creatures.
Drawing from current evidence of global warming, she will also explore what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth and what people can and should do as individuals and as a congregation to minimize their footprints on the environment.
The All Souls Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "Autumn Hymn," text by Barbara Owen, arranged by Lee Collins.
Children and youth will be apple picking on Sunday. The Religion Education program will head to Cortland Hill Orchards on Bonnyvale Road to pick apples. They will enjoy a talk given by the farmer, Nancy Miller, and will have a chance to participate in the Pick for Your Neighbors program. Apple picking is part of the monthly Nature Roundup program that gets children and youth outdoors on Sunday mornings. Nursery care is available.
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.
