WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist at the West Village Meeting House invites all to worship on Sunday, Aug. 10, at 10 a.m. when the topic will be "The Things We Hold On To."

Using Alexander McCall Smith’s series, "The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency," lay leader Elizabeth Wohl will explore the things we hold on to, and how we navigate the tension between clearing clutter and cherishing heirlooms both in the physical and ephemeral spheres. The series’ heroine, Mma Ramotswe, provides uplifting examples as she respects others’ opinions while staying true to her core beliefs.

All Souls at the West Village Meeting House is designated by the Unitarian Universalist Association as a Certified Welcoming Congregation and a Green Sanctuary, and recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat. All Souls is located at 29 South St. across the road up from the West Brattleboro Fire Station and Village Green. Nursery care is available.
