What Are You Reading Right Now?

Wednesday, January 19, 2022, 7:30 – 8:30 PM; Facilitator: Rev. Kathleen Rolenz
Let’s talk about books. What do you have on your nightstand or in your Kindle right now? Rev. Kathleen has been enjoying several biographies and novels, and wants to know: What are you reading or, perhaps more likely, what books have your purchased and haven’t yet read? Come prepared to share some of your favorite reads from the past year; and what you plan to read in 2022.

Philosophical Souls: Uncertainty

Monday, January 24, 2022, 7:00 – 8:30 PM; Facilitator: John Tambornino
Many of us seek renewed clarity and direction at the beginning of the year…but what if the world and our lives seem to be offering something else?  How can we make sense of uncertainty? What uncertainties most challenge us today? Please join us for these and your questions! We will gather via Zoom on Monday, January 24, from 7:00-8:30pm. Space is limited – please RSVP to

Stories from Our History

Sunday, January 30, 2022, 7:00 – 8:15 PM
All Souls now has 200 years of history as a congregation, and we have a rich archive documenting our life together, and our engagement in Washington and the nation. The All Souls archives committee has mined our treasures for an updated All Souls history book. You can purchase the book here. Join us on zoom to hear stories from our history told by Allison Blakey, Mara Cherkasky, Carol Falk, Henry Hubbard, and Julie Hubbard. Emily Koechlin will moderate. More information here.

Ongoing Groups and Events

Philosophical Souls

Honoring Socrates’ belief in the rewards of the examined life and the Unitarian Universalist commitment to a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning,” Philosophical Souls holds monthly discussions that tackle big questions in small settings. To participate, you only need what is available to us all—an open and inquiring mind. Join us for one gathering or many! No need to register. Contact John or Sara.

Individual Exploration

For those seeking insights and fresh perspectives on questions of individual interest or concern, we offer two opportunities. (Please note: These offerings are not meant for those seeking pastoral, medical, or mental health care, or those experiencing acute personal crisis.)

Clearness Gatherings. Drawing on the Quaker tradition, a small group of fellow travelers will gather to support you with their honest and open‐ended questions as you listen to the voices of your inner teachers. Learn more here.

Larger Questions: Philosophical Counseling. Individual congregants partner with a counselor to explore their most important questions through a breadth of philosophical perspectives and clarifying dialogue, in a relaxed and confidential environment. Contact ASC member and certified counselor John Tambornino or visit his website: Free/no fee.
