The results of the Sunday service and music committee survey are posted on the bulletin board across from the office door. There are two groups of papers; one of them is all graphs, the other group is all written responses. Thank you to everyone who completed a survey.
If you don't have a faith community, we welcome you to join us at any service as we embrace many cultures and beliefs. We have peaceful services of song and stories and moving topics. See description to the left, topics below. After service, we gather for food and fellowship in the parish hall.
ALL AGES WELCOME.
Summer Services begin at 9:30 AM in our Parish Hall.
July 2 Susan Cummings: Adventures in Liking my Looks: Writer and actress Susan Cummings brings us her one-woman performance of “Normal Must Be Boring.” This service is not a normal service as much as it is a dramatic and revealing portrayal of one woman’s journey through her own relationship with her own body image. Service Assistant: Mary Mitchell
July 9 Singing to Transform the World: Recent Divinity School graduate and justice song leader Jeannie Mulqueen will lift our voices and the voices of feminist theologians that are present and engaged in shifting the world into the transformed place we all dream of. Service Assistant: Judy and John Cobble

July 23 Memories and Gifts: Steve will regale and reward us with memories and gifts of all our contributions to the church and his life.

Aug 20 Jacob & Judy, on The Gospel of John, …Coltrane that is. On this mid-summer Sunday morning, prepare yourself for a musical and verbal journey through the music and broad religiosity of Jazz legend John Coltrane. Like many UU’s “Trane” found truth and drew inspiration from many different religious influences. Come for All Soul’s own unique version of bumpy jazz, where our own musical talents Jacob and Judy will bring alive the man and his influences. Service Assistant and Presenter: Judy Cobble
August 27 What You Crave: All Souls’ own Don Swanson will invite us to consider what it is we really crave. As we indulge in the question and thought of what we really crave, this service will remind us of how good you are. There will be singing and meditation and drumming. Service Assistant: Don Swanson
Sept 3 Labor Day: Is there “any” Intelligent Life in the Universe: Today our resident man of whit, Kevin Driscoll, will engage with us in the very serious topic of is there, was there, and will we encounter intelligent life in the universe? Informative more than comical on this last Summer Sunday, Kevin will run through some of the popular theories and ways to think about one of life’s great questions. Service Assistant and Presenter: Kevin Driscoll
