Humanist Discussion Group - Tuesday, May 2, 7:00 p.m.
The next meeting of the UUFSB Humanist Discussion Group is at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2 in the Yellow Room at the Fellowship. In preparation for our UUFSB Sunday Service presentation on May 28, we will review the issues that we considered during the year associated with escalating inequality with an emphasis on the growing Gig economy and how to help those forced into the Gig economy as the only way for an unemployable, middle class, middle aged person to generate an income that meets a minimum standard of living.

Playing for us as we walk is bassist Keenan Zach. You may have heard him at the Jazz Loft. The low soft vibrations of the bass strings add to the good feelings in the walking community. Come to this fully facilitated walk for clarity, peace, inspiration, stress reduction…..your intention is your own. Remember we walk every Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. as well. All are welcome.
Quarter Horse at Grounds and Sounds Cafe - Friday, May 12, 8:00 p.m.
Grounds and Sounds welcomes Quarter Horse, a unique new Long Island band, to the stage on May 12, at 8:00 p.m. If you force the six members of the band to describe their sound, they’ll eventually say they are an Americana band, with folk, rock, jazz and alternative influences. But they’d rather just make their own sound. However you classify them, it’s clear they are outstanding musicians and vocalists who have come into their own. Their recently released second album Quarter Horse displays their full musical prowess on acoustic and electric guitar, keyboards, mandolin, upright bass and other instruments. The band’s signature three-part harmonies are patterned after Crosby, Stills & Nash. They’re also famous for their collaborative lyric-writing, tandem lead guitars and improvisational work. This is their second time bringing their unique sound to Grounds and Sounds. Grounds and Sounds regulars who saw the first show are still raving about it.

Death Cafe — Eat Cake, See the Frontline Special “Being Mortal” and Talk About Death – Friday, May 19, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
What’s a Death Cafe? A Death Cafe is a discussion, with desserts, between groups of 6-8 people, with a facilitator present. Confidentiality and respect for differing ideas and beliefs is practiced. Participants introduce themselves and share why they came to the Death Cafe and the discussion often takes off from there. It is a discussion rather than a grief support or counseling session. It’s a surprisingly pleasant event. (www.deathcafe.com) It will be held at the Fellowship.
