WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to worship on Sunday, Feb. 2, at 10 a.m. when the theme will be "By What Authority?"

In honor of Pete Seeger, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist and authority on folk songs and music, several of his most popular songs will be featured in the service at All Souls. The children can enjoy making Valentines with Maisie Crowther and Eileen Parks, which will include a tribute to Seeger, by cutting simple red hearts, and adding phrases composed by this renowned folk singer who changed the way we see America.

During the service, All Souls Minister, the Rev. Barbro Hansson, is joined by Elizabeth Wohl in pondering the theme of "Authority."

George Carlin, who was called "the dean of counterculture comedians," said, "I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don’t have as many people who believe it." There is nothing countercultural about "authority," but many people are quite uncomfortable with it and question authority at every turn. By reflecting on "authority" this month, we can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation. The First Sunday Offering will benefit the Minister’s Discretionary Fund.

This Sunday will be Potluck Hospitality Sunday. Those attending are reminded to bring something to share.

Following the service, Small Group Session will discuss the theme of "Authority," 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All Souls at the West Village Meeting House is located at 29 South St. across the road up from the West Brattleboro fire station and village green. Nursery care is available.
