June 24, 2018, Summer series #1, “How Can UUFSB Accommodate Religiously Liberal But Politically Conservative Members?” – Gil Hanson, Worship Leader
In our Humanist Discussion Group we have been struggling with how we as members of a liberal religion
- supporting individual choice and initiative,
- seeing the inherent worth and dignity in every person, and
- accepting that individuals may search for their own version of "truth and meaning"
can provide a welcome to both politically conservative as well as politically liberal members.

Evening Labyrinth Walk – Tuesday, July 10, 8:00 p.m.
Come join us as we walk the labyrinth and listen to harpist Caroline Popielaski. We walk on our indoor labyrinth so this event is held rain or shine. Facilitator Linda Mikell will explain the history and the “how to” of the labyrinth. Come for peace, de-stressing, clarity, problem solving, mindfulness and/or meditation. The labyrinth walk is said to be a metaphor for life. Thoughts and feelings that come to you on the labyrinth are similar to thoughts and feelings you have in your life. We walk every Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. as well. Join other UU members and people from the community. Free will donation.

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.
