Next Level Spirituality

Rev. Carlton Pearson

Transcendence is a constant natural and nurtured discipline of the soul, self and mind. It means, from its etymological origin, to climb across or climb over. It is a reference to existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level. 

Our American culture, including religion, is transcending to a new and more progressive spirituality. Join us here at All Souls for a fantastic month of moving across, through and beyond previous limits boundaries to a new discovery and even recovery of our most power living as human beings, being human. 

 *Special musical guest Branjae Jackson joins for both the 10:00 Traditional and 11:30 a.m. Contemporary Services!

Sacred Play

Steven L. Williams

Adults do not play nearly enough. We forget that fun, joy, creativity, and silliness bring us closer to our essential nature. Children know this intuitively. They use play for everything. Play not only helps them figure out their world, but who they are and where they fit in that world. If you look at your favorite ways of playing as a child, you may see the roots of what brings you the most joy today. Sometimes we need help remembering how to play. Come get a reminder on April 29 at the Humanist Hour!  

 



Monthly Themes

Though All Souls is active year round, from September through May, our congregation is organized around nine theological themes.

These themes provide a shared focus, giving our congregation the opportunity to gain greater clarity, meaning, and depth. Seriously engaging in these themes could transform your life!

Go deeper with our three year cycle of themes:

  1. Don’t miss your favorite service on the First Sunday of each month. A minister will introduce the theme. Additional services throughout the month may deal with different aspects of the theme as do our weekly Children's Chapel services and Children's and Youth programs.
  2. Attend our adult programming classes and events, Wednesday ConnectionsOnce a month our ministers hold a "Theme Talk" where they will offer their insights into to the theme and invite conversation.
  3. Check out All Souls exclusive blog, BeyondBelief.online. Engage in religiously liberal content curated from the heartland.
