Hello All Souls Indianapolis! I am so looking forward to meeting you all. And I am so looking forward to the interim ministry we will be doing together. I have seen our congregations save lives. Every congregation is saving lives in some way: perhaps a UU Youth group, a LGBTQ  choir concert, and certainly in all the connections sustaining us through joy and tragedy. And we save something more more than our lives We save this miracle the earth come alive witnessing and wondering with the universe this web of life from which we emerged and will return. I’m  grateful to be in this conversation with you about ministry, congregations in transition, and about our Living Tradition, Unitarian  Universalism.
-Rev. Joel Miller
                             

Join us for our virtual Service, Live at 10:30am

“Forgive Us, for We Know Not What We Have Done.”–Hiroshima and Nagasaki are only two examples of our national amnesia.  Justice-seeking requires refreshing our memory.  Our future is dependent upon our vision of the past, and the present demands a rebooting of our values.
Our Guest Speaker: Bill Breeden is a Unitarian Universalist minister, and was a candidate for Indiana State Representative in 2016. He was “Trumped,” but enjoyed meeting a host of good people as he campaigned. A long-time peace activist, Bill has been briefly imprisoned for peace in Indiana, Kentucky, Washington, DC, and Honduras. He served All Souls as sabbatical minister a few years back. Bill and Glenda, his life partner of 51+ years, now live in a small self-built cabin on 40 acres of forest in Owen County, Indiana. They have two adult children and one teenage grandson, all three of which are constant reminders of the beauty of life. He is currently working on his memoirs, entitled Billy Pilgrim and the Black Female Jesus.

Events and Announcements

Blue Boat Home Essay Group on World Scriptures
Our really wonderful first run of this group focused on essays on the idea of home, and we had really valuable conversations. Our second session, which will run five weeks, (one meeting a week) will focus on the Scriptures of the world. As Unitarians, our third source is “Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life”. We will dive into passages from various Scriptures and reflect on their relevancy on our own lives. Once we have a core group we will decide what time to meet on Zoom. Please RSVP to programs@allsoulsindy.org.
 
Closure of Church Grounds and Building
A COVID-19 Task Force has been created to develop policies and procedures for the Board to implement to ensure the health and safety of our staff, congregants, guests and renters. Their first recommendation, which has been approved by the Board, is to close the church and grounds to everyone except staff or residents until further notice. This closure is effective immediately and will remain in place until proper safety protocols and training around those protocols have been established and enacted.

We ask that you refrain from using the building and grounds during this time. Anyone who needs access should be accompanied by a staff member. Masks are required. If a church member wishes to establish an exception, they should contact the COVID-19 Task Force. An email for the Task Force will be set up and communicated next week. In the meantime, please email vicepresident@allsoulsindy.org

Blanket Drive The Diversity and Inclusion Team at All Souls is sponsoring a blanket drive. Please donate any blankets or sheets. The blankets can be dropped off in the church foyer, in the box labeled “Blanket Drive”. Nasreen Khan will collect them and distribute them to the Jail Support booth, and other organizations that interact with those experiencing homelessness in downtown Indianapolis.
