    December 10  Paper Bag Pageant &
    Fare Thee Well Reverend Caitlin!

    One service at 10:00 a.m. – No Religious Education classes

    Worship Leader:  Reverend Caitlin O’Brien

    This service will be a multigenerational extravaganza, retelling the ancient and familiar story of Jesus’ birth. All are invited to participate. Costumes – nothing fancy – will be provided in a – you guessed it – paper bag, labeled for the cast of characters.  As you arrive, you are invited to pick a bag and put on the costume. For those who wish to remain seated there will be animal masks or stars.

    Following the service, we will wish Reverend Caitlin well as she begins her four-month sabbatical! 
     

    December 17  Solstice Service
    One service at 4:30 p.m.
    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    Winter solstice is a celebration of ancient wisdom. Suzanne Wingrove-Haugland’s Solstice Cycle Ritual accompanies the songs that have become All Souls favorites. We journey together through the darkness and emerge renewed into the light. Come and celebrate!

    Children in 3rd grade or higher are encouraged to attend the Solstice Service. Childcare will be available for infants through 2nd grade.

    New London Food Pantry Offering: Holiday Treats (packaged nuts, crackers, cookies, candies, etc.)

     

    December 24 Candle Light Christmas Eve
    Two services at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.
    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    The lights dim and we gather to celebrate the ancient story’s beauty and resonance.  Hope born again! 

    Good Neighbor Offering:  Ministerial Discretionary Fund (MDF). This fund supports Souls within and beyond the congregation in time of need.  As well, the MDF supports organizations that share our values.

     

    December 31  Concluding in Song!
    One service at 10:00 a.m.
    Worship Leader:  Maria Bariess

    What better way to end the year than to sing out the old and sing in the new?

Everyone is most welcome! The Meditation Group meets twice weekly: at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday mornings and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evenings. Basic guidelines are offered to all newcomers, and guided mediation is offered during some of the sessions.

Each session includes silent sitting mediation, walking mediation, and dharma sharing, in which folks may share their meditation experiences. On most second Wednesdays, our coordinator offers guided meditation with the body, from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. Attendance is free but donations are gratefully accepted.

For more information please contact Pamala Lewis: pamalalewis@comcast.net or Jean Jerbert: j.jerbert@yahoo.com
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.
