June 1st – 3rd – Weekend on the Bay
Join the All Souls congregation for a weekend getaway at Camp Tockwogh (about two hours from DC on the Eastern Shore). There will be activities for infants through Silver Souls: campfires, workshops, vespers, a talent show, water sports, archery, hiking, and plenty of time to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting. This will be a great way for Young Souls to spend time with people of all ages from the All Souls community. Online registration for Weekend on the Bay is open at http://www.all-souls.org/wob.
Friday, June 8 – Sunday, June 10 – Jubilee Anti-Racism Training
Want to learn to fight white supremacy? Join us for Jubilee Anti-Racism Training June 8-10, 2018. Jubilee helps us identify how white supremacy prevents us from experiencing our common humanity. Jubilee examines white supremacy’s reach into our institutions, our lives, and our interpersonal relationships. It teaches us how to build a new culture of solidarity and empathy. The Beckner Advancement Fund generously provided for scholarships for 10 Young Souls to attend Jubilee! More information about how to receive the scholarship soon! The workshop requires a weekend commitment but it’s worth every minute. It’s $160 per participant (includes cost for trainers, meals and materials). We welcome contributions in support of this work. Fri., Jun. 8 (6–10 pm); Sat., Jun. 9 (9 am – 9 pm); Sun., Jun. 10 (8:30 am – 5 pm), All Souls Church, Washington, DC. Register here: https://tinyurl.com/ysjubilee2018 Contact Andrew Hall.

Wednesday, June 20th, 6:30pm – Young Souls UU Principles Discussion Group
Have you ever wanted to know more about the Principles of Unitarian Universalism? Every third Wednesday of the month we will gather to discuss these basic tenants of the Unitarian Universalist faith. We’ll talk about the actual language of the principle, historical UU perspectives, and our own experiences in relation to the month’s principle. On Wednesday, June 20th, we will reset to the First Principle: “The inherent worth and dignity of every person.” Snacks and friendship will be provided. All are welcome, and those who are either new to the community or excited about the faith are especially encouraged to come. Bring your curiosity and join us as we delve into this intentional exploration of UU beliefs! Location: Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Neighborhood Library- 1630 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001. RSVP on Facebook here. Contact Nick Ford for more details or with any questions!
