February 24, 2019, "All I Really Need to Know, I Learned...in RE"- Deborah Little, Worship Leader
Deb Little will share with us some things she is learning as the new DRE. How one of the best things is when a 4-year-old runs up and hugs you or a teacher brings in their own really cool idea for a book or a craft, or parents come in to help in the classroom, or you put out an ask on the FB page for DRE’s and get 6 book suggestions in 6 minutes, or a member just walks in and hands you two really great books for kids...and other things.
Humanist Discussion Group - Tuesday, Feb. 19, 7:00 p.m.
The speaker at Sunday's Service (Feb. 17), Aleema Hosein, will be attending our Humanist Discussion Group at 7:00 p.m. Tues. Feb. 19 in the Yellow Room at the Fellowship. She will give a 5- to 10-minute presentation on Islam before our discussion on Islam and the West.
In view of the stereotyping of Islam and Muslims which has gone on in the West for many centuries, and especially since the Arab oil embargo of 1973 and the Iranian Revolution of 1979, it is necessary to state at the outset of this article that "the world of Islam" is not a monolith and that Muslims differ as sharply within their "ummah" of one billion persons as do adherents of other major religious traditions within their own respective communities.

Bereavement Support Group at UUFSB – Mondays, April 8 through May 20 – 7:00-8:30 p.m.
While death is a fact of life, when it happens to someone we love it can hit us in expected and unexpected ways. The death of a loved one is considered to be one of the greatest stressors in life and it can take months or even years to regain balance. Grieving people can often benefit from sharing their feelings in a safe environment with people who are not necessarily family or close friends.
The Rev. Dr. Linda Anderson, Community Minister in affiliation with UUFSB. is starting another Bereavement Support Group for UUFSB members, friends, and members of the community. The potential to benefit from a bereavement group is not limited to people who have suffered a loss in recent weeks or months, and Linda encourages anyone who has lost a loved one within the past fifteen months and struggles with grief to join the group. The group is free to all and is designed to be helpful to people of all faiths and no faith.
Women's Clothing Swap - Saturday, April 13, 2:00-5:00 p.m.
SAVE THE DATE: Our semi-annual Women's Clothing Swap will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 2:00-5:00 pm.
