WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Church Unitarian Universalist invites all to worship on Sunday, April 28, at 10 a.m. "The Gift of Silence" will be the theme.

All Souls Board President, Harvey Nystrom, recently traveled to the International Dharma Center in Surat Thani, Thailand, for a second 10-day silent retreat. Last July, he shared what he learned on his first go-round. On Sunday, he will share what new spiritual insights he has gained. Nystrom will talk about mindfulness, silence and opening the mind to a nonverbal experience of the world.

The All Souls Adult Choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "How Can I Keep from Singing?," a traditional folk song in an arrangement by Joyce Eilers.

Nursery care and programs for children are available. All Souls Church is located at 29 South St. across the road from the West Brattleboro Fire Station and village green. For more information or directions, call the church office at 802-254-9377, e-mail or go online to
