Wild and Precious Life

This week’s topic is “Wild and Precious Life.”  This service will ask several All Souls members to take the final line from The Summer Day by Mary Oliver and share with the congregation.  “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Retrospective Inventory

We welcome the New Year by looking back — as we move forward — reminiscing about loved ones and others who died the previous year. What can we learn from loved ones or noted individuals who are no longer with us? Members sharing their stories of loss, public or personal: Shelby Wentworth on Joyce Wentworth, her Mom; Gary Pabst on several Environmental Defenders; Dan Davis on best friend Nate; and Linda Hallstrom on Charles Manson. We will then pass the microphone so that members of the congregation can briefly share and honor the lives of others who passed away in 2017.
