“Flags! Flags! Flags! with Rev. Anton Jacobs

Rev. Anton Jacobs is back by popular demand. You may remember that Anton was a favorite guest speaker a few years back as he ministered to All Souls during a difficult time for us. Anton says, “We’re watching an orgy of flagdom in connection with the World Cup and July 14 is Bastille Day. The gist of what I’ll be doing is affirming that what really counts is not the flag that flies over a land but the reality of freedom, peace and justice in the land.”

“To Boldly Go: A Journey into the Spirituality of Science Fiction” with Zarrin Reynolds 
Geeks unite as we examine the spiritual and life lessons to be learned from sci-don literature, movies and television.  Certified geekhood not required, but a questing mind and a laughing heart are a must!

“Science and Spirit” with Keely Schneider
We kick off our season of summer services with a consideration of how the methods and the discoveries of science can inform our spiritual lives.  The meaning we make for living is always shaped by our understanding of what and how the world is, and the stories we tell about what we know for sure.  How can science and spirit be partners, rather than contestants for our loyalty?

“Inquiring Minds” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons
The tradition of a Question Box Sunday appears to be unique to Unitarian Universalism, but it goes back a long way in our tradition.  This is your chance to ask something that you have always wished to hear about from the pulpit; 3 x 5 cards are available in the Communications Center, and you can leave your question in Kendyl’s mailbox, or you can tweet your question to @AllSoulsKC. Kendyl says, “It really is a better experience if I have a chance to put the questions in some sensible order, and think about them for a little while, but I will answer as many as I can in the time available.”
