Living through a pandemic at age 94

I am given hope for the future by this message from my Unitarian Church where I find a broadly based community of people of all cultures and creeds considering life's meaning.


Here is the Sunday service at All Souls UU Church in DC on April 26, 2020. I thought Tony's message was outstanding. I hope you will be challenged by it and also enjoy the concluding music which was performed the evening of the Women's March on Washington on the day after Trumps inaugural.

An unusual post for me.


A thought I want to share


I never thought I would do anything like this, but these are strange times, even for one 94. While I still consider myself a "religious" person, I admit upfront that I no longer believe all that I learned about "god" most of my life. TO ME A CHURCH IS A PLACE WHERE I HAVE TRIED TO FIND THE MEANING, PURPOSE AND MORAL TONE OF AND FOR MY LIFE. OBVIOUSLY OTHERS MAY FIND DIFFERENT SOURCES FOR ACCOMPLISHING THAT.

YET! I want to invite you to a service tonight at my INTERFAITH

ALL SOULS UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CHURCH IN WASHINGTON DC

The ministers and singers will attempt to bring meaning and comfort from the plague our world is suffring from now. I know it will help me and I urge you to join me or to seek out other spiritual support.

And know that it is my “treat”. Do not feel compelled to make a contribution: other than to those groups you may find worthy of your support.

The service starts at 7:30PM and may be sourced as follows.

All Souls Good Friday Service, this evening at 7:30 PM 

Dear Friends,

Please join me, Rev. Tony Coleman, and members of our music team for an intimate service of music, scripture, contemplation and prayer as we honor the brokenness of our world by remembering the passion and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. Have a candle ready, if you can. A simple communion will be served. If you wish to partake in communion, please have a piece of bread and a sip of wine, water or grape juice available.

You may access our live Good Friday service online or you may phone in to the service at 929-436-2866 (meeting ID: 659 811 817).
