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

We currently have Chalice Circle starting for the summer! If you are interested contact

We will be doing a young adults chalice circle that will meet in a socially distanced way in-person; and one fully virtual chalice circle for all ages.

Small Groups

Small groups give you the opportunity to get to truly get to know others in the congregation; and time to reconnect with yourself, too.

Open to members and friends alike. If Sunday morning worship isn’t your style, but you’re be interested in participating in small groups, email:

We have two different types of small groups here at All Souls:

Chalice Circles: Ten individuals who come together to reflect on and make meaning of our life experiences. These groups are a space for all to deeply listen and truly be heard.

Groups meet from Fall-Summer, and are re-formed every year. We are currently using the book Heart to Heart to guide us in this work, with its weighty topics, relevant readings and thought-provoking activities.

Affinity Groups: Individuals who come together around a shared identity or interest. Some groups have been meeting for years, some have just recently formed.

Groups include: Brunch Brothers, Soul Sisters, Young Adults, Humanists, New Age Spirituality, Memoirs, UU Buddhists and Goddess Group.

Wanting to learn more about ways to get to know others, in authentic, real ways? For more information on any of these groups, contact:

Young Adults

We have two different meet-up groups for younger adults:

Those in their 20’s and 30’s (and 18- and 19-year-olds!) are welcome to join together with one of our Ministers or Staff for brunch at Lincoln Square Pancake House down to road on the Second Sunday of the month.

All under 50 are welcome to join together for “younger adult” meet-ups.
