Regardless of our spiritual backgrounds, this interfaith experience can unite us in a community of voices and hearts. So, Come, come whoever you are, and expect music and silence to soothe, energize, delight and move you. Click here…

October 13: “American Nightmare, Part 1” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

October 13 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Politicians and others are fond of advocating for everyone to share “the American dream.” We may differ about what that is, exactly, or what it should be, but we seldom question whether a dream is the best format for the ideals toward which we might aspire. Visits to a series of historical sites from the Civil Rights movement of the 20th century in the U.S. lead me to wonder whether the idea of a dream does not require the substance…

November 3: “De-Colonizing” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

November 3 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Autumn in the USA brings a series of holiday observances that raise the issues of colonialism and cultural appropriation. Starting with Columbus Day, continuing through Halloween/Day of the Dead, and on to Thanksgiving, it is important to think clearly about who is celebrating, and what is being celebrated. If we are not intentional about what our holidays mean, they will end up with implications that we don’t really affirm. We will offer a children’s focus, and our special collection will…

November 10: “Voices of War and Peace” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

November 10 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

On this Veterans Day, we recognize both the nobility of individual sacrifice that soldiers make in battle, and the corrupt purposes that so often underlie the impulses of war. The choir will sing, we will share joys and concerns, and the offering will support our Hunger Outreach Team, many of whose guests are homeless and food insecure veterans.

November 17: “How Angels Fly” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

November 17 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

It is said that angels can fly because they take themselves lightly. In these days of painfully intense cultural divisions with tragic real life consequences, is it even possible to maintain a saving perspective of humility and sense of humor about ourselves? How might self-awareness nurture our capacity for resistance? The choir will sing, and we will welcome new members into the All Souls congregation.

November 24: “To See the Beauty of the World” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

November 24 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

At its best, Thanksgiving invites us to pause and find a place of gratitude for the parts of our lives that have been difficult, or different than what we expected, as well as to remember the things and people we have lost, with gratitude for what they have meant to us.  This practice helps to make our lives more meaningful to ourselves, and of greater service to others. The children will help us with a Thanksgiving ritual, we will honor…
