Humanist Discussion Group - Tuesday, Feb. 20, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
The next Humanist Discussion Group meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. Tues. Feb. 20 in the Yellow Room at the Fellowship. We will continue our study of Beyond the Partisan Divide with the UUA Toolkit. On Feb. 20 we will consider "Ecclesiology: The Purpose of the Church." Everyone is welcome.
"Unitarian Universalism is a border-crossing faith. We constantly revisit what it means to be open and welcoming to all who would find sustenance in our message and our communities. Our first Principle calls us to see the inherent worth and dignity in every person. Our fourth champions a free search for truth and meaning. Still, living in our two-party political system, we sometimes struggle to embody a welcome that stretches across partisan division."

Death Cafe: Eat Cake and Talk About Death — Saturday, Mar. 24, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
When Breath Becomes Air
What’s a Death Cafe? The founders of the Death Cafe phenomenon call it a “social franchise.” A Death Cafe is a discussion, with food, between groups of 6-8 people, with a facilitator present. Confidentiality and respect for differing ideas and beliefs is practiced. It’s a surprisingly pleasant event. It is a discussion rather than a grief support or counseling session. The objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.
