Rev. Hansson to explore ‘Facing Evil’ at All Souls Church


WEST BRATTLEBORO -- All Souls Unitarian Universalist invites all to gather Sunday, Oct. 6, at 10 a.m.

During October, All Souls at the West Village Meeting House has as its theme the controversial topic of "Evil." The living tradition of Unitarian Universalism draws truth and meaning from many sources, ancient as well as contemporary, religious as well as secular. This Sunday, the Rev. Barbro Hansson topic is "Facing Evil." She will attempt to shed some light on the very difficult and challenging topic of "evil."

The choir, under the direction of Ede Thomas, will sing "Have No Fear," by Paul Lindsley Thomas.

In the Time for All Ages, Llora Kressmann will share "Satan Tries to Hide Yahweh’s Love," an ancient Jewish story. Following the story, with the congregation singing "This Little Light," children will go to their classrooms to explore and learn about faith, hope and prayer.

Nursery care is offered for infants and toddlers during Sunday morning adult services. Faith formation activities for children begin at 10:20 a.m.

Following the Sunday morning service, the congregation of All Souls hosts a potluck coffee hour. Everyone is invited to bring something to share. After coffee hour, those interested in exploring the theme of "evil" on a more personal level and in an intimate and information setting, are invited to join with Rev. Hansson for an hour-long small group session.
