Hysterical Women: A Story of Friendship
We’ve explored what differentiates Unitarian Universalism from other liberal religions in several recent services. This week, we’ll look at it from a lighter point of view, as befits a summer service. Thanks to a suggestion from Sarah O’Connell, I’ve found a short presentation by Rev. Liz James and Rev. Anne Barker, from the UU Hysterical Society, which speaks about fitting in, being vulnerable, accepting yourself exactly as you are, laughing, and singing (whether you can carry a tune or not).

August 29th – Potluck Picnic: August 29th there will be no worship service, but we will try to assemble in person for a potluck church picnic outdoors behind the church, using the wooden picnic tables and other tables from the social hall. Everyone is being asked to bring some kind of dish or food item to be shared, but we won’t be serving ourselves buffet style. Instead, if it doesn’t rain and we do have the picnic, the food will be on a separate table and there will be one person designated as server, wearing rubber gloves and mask, with people spaced apart as they wait in line.
September 5th No Service: Traditionally All Souls has no worship service on the first Sunday in July and the first Sunday in September.
