WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist at the West Village Meeting House invites all to its Open House Celebration on Sunday, May 4, when the Rev. Barbro Hansson will explore the theme of "Mercy."
Joseph Campbell said, "Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy." Computers perform exactly what they are programmed to do and, yes, they can be frustratingly unforgiving. All Souls member Jeanne Austin will recite a brief excerpt on Mercy from Shakespeare’s "The Merchant of Venice." The service will conclude with the Children’s Song Circle. The All Souls Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "I will Sing With the Spirit," by John Rutter.
This Sunday children of all ages are invited to join the monthly Song Circle with musician and educator, Dan Kasnitz. They will laugh and sing and discuss the mysterious word Mercy, and work together to learn a fun, new song on the theme.
All Souls is a place where individuals practice being human together, nourishing souls that long for comfort and security through roots that grow deep and strong; spirits that hunger for adventure and excitement through visions that soar high and far; minds that thirst for knowledge and clarity through learning that enlightens and inspires; hearts that yearn for emotions and understanding through feelings that heal and comfort; and hands that itch for engagement and activity through deeds that create peace, liberty, and justice for all.
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.
