WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to gather Sunday, Nov. 3, at 10 a.m.
Unitarian Universalism is founded on the democratic process, and holds as essential its use within Unitarian Universalist congregations and in society at large. This Sunday, as the focus turns toward the theme of "Democracy," All Souls minister, the Rev. Barbro Hansson, will reflect on what "democracy" means and how it functions. The First Sunday Offering will benefit the Minister’s Discretionary Fund. The All Souls Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "A Distant Land," by John Rutter.
In Religious Education, the children will learn about the concept of forgiveness. In our quest to discover what is morally good and just, forgiveness gives us an invaluable tool for strengthening our relationships and choosing compassion. They will hear a story on the theme and practice letting go of past hurts by writing them in the sand. On Sunday evening families of youth in grades 7, 8 and 9 are invited to an open house about the Our Whole Lives sexuality education course. This course does not reference any religious doctrine. All interested families are invited to attend.
All Souls at the West Village Meeting House, a covenanting community where people of all ages learn and grow together and explore the meaning of life and its purpose, is located at 29 South St., across the road up from the West Brattleboro Fire Station and Village Green.
