Fellowship Work Party - Saturday, August 18, 9:00 a.m.
On Saturday Aug. 18 we will clean all the windows we can get to at the Fellowship. It would make the job quicker and a lot more fun if a large group takes part. If several people arrive at 9:00 a.m., we could get the sanctuary windows all sparkly before the Koga group gets started at 9:45 am. Will you please join us in making the Fellowship look fresh and new before the Homecoming service? People who know how to deal with screens especially welcome! Please bring your own window cleaning supplies and a smile.
Labyrinth Walk for Remembrance, Tuesday, Sept. 11, 8:00 p.m.
Facilitator Linda Mikell will be leading a labyrinth walk on this National Day of Remembrance and Service. Come to remember and honor a loved one. Bring a small memento of that person. A labyrinth is a meditative path that you walk with intention. You may have an intention for your loved one OR for de-stressing, clarity, peace – your intention is your own. The candle lit labyrinth is indoors so this is a rain or shine event. We are pleased to announce that this walk will be accompanied by the music of professional cellist, Stephanie Iovine (pictured). All are welcome. The walk is preceded by an explanation of the history and the use of the labyrinth. Free will donation.
Bob Westcott at Grounds and Sounds – Friday, Sept. 14, 8:00 p.m.
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Bob Westcott’s career began as a teenager playing guitar in the streets and basket houses of Greenwich Village. Onetime owner of Folk City and famed Greenwich Village scene author Robbie Woliver has called Bob "the real deal", and for good reason: Bob has been perfecting his elegant finger-style guitar work for well over 30 years. Both timely and timeless, his astonishing guitar playing and universally resonant songwriting have made him a perennial favorite on the Long Island scene and he impresses audiences wherever he goes.
His performances are peppered with stories about his personal experiences, his travels and travails. Bob’s CD Wherever You Go is beautifully crafted, an exploration of instrumental destinations which is "well-grounded and substantial, yet delicate and airy... an appealing choice for any fan of melodic instrumental music.”
Humanist Discussion Group – Tuesday, April 3, 7:00 p.m.
The next meeting of the Humanist Discussion Group is at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday April 3 in the Yellow Room at the Fellowship. We will continue our discussion of Beyond the Partisan Divide. The topic is "Congregational Stands on Significant Issues." All are welcome.
When considering whether or not to pass a congregational resolution on an issue, there are several important questions that can help discern if and how to go about it. https://www.uua.org/justice-programs/resolutions
- The first thing to keep in mind is that anything done in a congregational setting can be divisive if done poorly.
- An important question when considering a congregational resolution is to ask how it helps reach a goal.
- Another question to consider is whether or not the resolution reflects the congregation’s identity.
