WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to gather Sunday, Dec. 1, at 10 a.m. to hear All Souls minister, the Rev. Barbro Hansson, speak on the theological theme of "God," in her homily, "God/Goddess Talk." Rev. Hansson will be joined by All Souls members Ann Braden and Ed Burke who will both share their personal thoughts on God. The service will include a time for all to contemplate the meaning of God and an opportunity to share personal reflections.

All Souls member Catie Berg will sing "How Great Thou Art," a song based on a poem written in 1885 by Carl Boberg, a young Swedish minister, and sung to the tune of an old Swedish melody.

The choir, under the direction of Tom Baehr, will sing one of his own compositions, "On the Birthday of the Lord." Llora Kressmann, All Souls director of Religious Education for Children, will bring a special story to life with a woolly mammoth and six people who are blind in the lead roles. The First Sunday Offering will benefit the Minister’s Discretionary Fund.

The first Sunday of the month service is followed by a potluck coffee hour. Bring something to share and plan to stay afterwards for the Small Group Ministry session on the theme of "God/Goddess" from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.
