    Words to Live by:
    Hail Mother, who art the earth, hallowed be thy soil, rocks and flora that nourish and support all life.  Blessed be thy wind that gives us breath and thy waters that quench, bathe and refresh all living things.  Holy Earth – as one – we praise your majesty, grace and wonder.  ~Bill Faherty

     

    April 29: "Cosmic Home"
    Two services:  9:30 & 11:15 a.m.
    Worship Leader:  Reverend Caitlin O’Brien

    Philosopher Marshall McLuhan said, “There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth.  We are all crew.”  As we celebrate the beauty of the Earth this month, let’s take a look at her cosmic home and linger in some "wow" moments.  We will listen to scientists, astronauts and mystics -- to absorb what some call "the overview effect," a sense of awe, oneness, humility and empowerment all at once.   

    Reverend Carolyn will be preaching in Haverhill, MA on Sunday.  The UU Church of Haverhill was All Souls' "Leap of Faith" partner congregation in 2013.  Our connection to the congregation will continue next Sunday, May 6 when Reverend Frank Clarkson, minister of UUCH, will be our guest preacher.

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.

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.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
