    February 2018
    Monthly Ministry Theme: Love

    "All you need is love. Love is all you need."
    ~John Lennon


    February 18:  “The Love that Will Not Let Us Go:  Universalism’s Loving God”      

    Two services at 9:30 and 11:15                                                      

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    At the time, (the early 19th Century) Universalist theology was as radical as they come:  a loving God that does not damn any Soul to hell.  In fact, Universalist theology claimed (and still does) that there is no hell.  It is a life-giving theology that is as nourishing today as it ever was.  We’ll consider Universalist theology then and now.

    New London Food Pantry Offering:  Canned soups


    February 25:  Whatever Reverend Clarke wants to share with us!  

    TWO SERVICES AT 9:30 AND 11:15 AM

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    Guest Preacher:  Reverend Florence Clarke

    Reverend Clarke is the newly retired pastor of Walls Clarke Temple AME Zion Church in New London.  She is a close friend of Rev. Carolyn’s and really, a close friend to so many.  Her wisdom is sought in contemplating any issue of importance within the community.  Come and be moved by her grace, humor, and wisdom.  And oh yes:  she is a beautiful and powerful preacher!

Quiet Time with Singing Bowls
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
The tones produced by Himalayan singing bowls can be a unique entry into a place of calm, peace, healing, and harmony. .
If you have never heard several singing bowls played together, you have never really heard singing bowls.

Please consider joining John Irwin, who has been playing singing bowls for over three years, each Tuesday evening at All Souls from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a period of peace and relaxation.

All are welcome.
