January 24, 2021 – "Remembering the Body" - An All Long Island Sunday Service - Rev. Margie Allen

And we can all do our part to keep our Fellowship going. We ask our Members and Friends to continue to make pledge payments and plate offerings by mailing a check to UUFSB, 380 Nicolls Road, E.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong Classes
Judith Budd Walsh is teaching two classes on Zoom.
Tai Chi Flow: Mondays 2:30-3:15 p.m. $96 Jan. 11, 18, 25; Feb. 1, 8, 15; March 1, 8.
Judith has developed this class for those who want to practice Tai Chi but need to do it on Zoom. Classes may be recorded and sent to you. Moving your body in the Tai Chi way will benefit balance, mental focus, physical strength, overall health and well-being. Come join Tai Chi Flow to "tide" you over until in-person classes resume hopefully in the spring. No Prior Tai Chi experience is necessary. Ability to stand is preferred to develop balance, but not required.
Qigong: Tuesdays 2:30- 3:00 p.m. $80 Jan. 12, 19, 26; Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23; March 2.
Judith will lead you through the ancient system of exercises and breathing techniques to cultivate health, energy and relaxation. These practices have been linked to increased strength, stamina, physical balance, tranquility and well-being. No prior experience is required. All are welcome. You may take this class standing or seated.
Winter Session of Essentrics Stretch Classes - Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10:00 a.m.

Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
If you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?
If you are interested in Unitarian Universalism, we hope you’ll visit us to learn more. If attending our services doesn’t fit your life, you might want to investigate the Church of the Larger Fellowship, a virtual congregation of Unitarian Universalists, with more than 3,500 members around the U.S. They hold online services on Sundays at 8 p.m., and on Mondays at 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
You can find them at clfuu.org.
