Passover and Holy Week at All Souls

Spring is the season of new life. At church, it’s a time to reflect on some of the greatest stories of the Judeo-Christian tradition—stories of new life, of freedom, of resurrection. Over the next two weeks we will celebrate the Passover and Easter stories with a series of meaningful services. Please join us!

Intergenerational Potluck Seder (Saturday, March 28, at 5:00 pm). At this inclusive celebration of freedom, we draw parallels between the exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt, slavery in the United States, and current struggles to rid ourselves of modern slavery, prejudice, discrimination, and oppression. The ancient story still applies to all of us in various ways. You’ll meet warm, friendly All Souls folks and enjoy conversation, good food, stories, and singing. Plenty of camaraderie! Children are especially welcome (Rob leads the children across the Red Sea!). For details and to register, contact Steven Newburg Rinn ( or Delabian Rice Thurston (

Good Friday Tenebrae Service (Friday, April 3, at 7:30 pm). Led by Rev. Hardies and Rev. Newman Moore. The Latin word tenebrae means “darkness” or “shadows.” Join us for a service of beautiful music, poetry, silence, and darkness as we remember the crucifixion of Jesus and the brokenness of our world. A simple communion will be served.

Easter Sunday (April 5 at 9:30 and 11:15 am). Sermon: “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” by Rev. Hardies. The disciples encounter the resurrected Jesus, but don’t recognize him until they sit down and break bread with him. Can we find the Holy in our communion with one another?
