October 21, 2018, “UUs in the Big Picture of American Faith: Where are We Now?” - Rev. Margie Allen and the Committee on Ministries of the Congregation
As part of our study of the vigor of our Fellowship’s lay leadership cadre, Margie and the Committee on Ministries of the Congregation (COMC) invite you to enter the bigger picture by contributing what you think and do.

“Shop Your Style” Women’s Clothing Swap FUNdraiser – Saturday, Oct. 20, 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Join us for our FALL clothing swap! Following upon the success of our “Shop Your Style” event last spring, we are holding another women’s clothing swap, with a focus on cold-weather wear. Do you have new or gently used clothes and/or accessories that just don’t seem to call to you anymore? We have the perfect solution for you. Bring these new / gently used items to our Fall UUFSB Women’s “Shop Your Style” fashion swap on Saturday, Oct. 20 and come home with some new treasures! You’ll also help our Fellowship with the small admission fee and support our green sanctuary status by re-purposing these items.
- Admission is on a sliding scale of $10-$20 PLUS one or more items to swap.
- Tables and clothes racks will be set up for you to display your items.
- Coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided.
- You can try on items in our dressing rooms (AKA the peach classrooms).
- Around 3:00 p.m., Gilda and Kay will lead a NEW discussion of “Fashion vs Style, What's the Difference?” This talk will include how to determine what your best colors might be and how to incorporate colors you love into your wardrobe in simple, inexpensive ways.
- We won’t be keeping tabs on how many items you contribute vs how many you take home!
- Any leftover items after the swap will be donated to charity.
Mark Newman at Grounds and Sounds – Friday, Nov. 9, 8:00 p.m.
Growing up in New York, Mark Newman’s musical journey has taken him around the world several times as both sideman and singer/songwriter. This ace stringsman – guitar, lap steel, mandolin, dobro – and accomplished songwriter is the type of singer whose warm and expressive voice sounds like an old friend. He put it all together on his 2006 CD Must Be A Pony. In 2010, he took a quantum leap forward with the stunning Walls Of Jericho. The CD is chockfull of intricate guitar work, mixed up front to create a synthesis of pure Americana: folksy charm, arrogant rock, hippie nostalgia and Dylanesque moments. His lyrical touch has been elevated into the realm of the profound and the universal.
Grounds and Sounds is proud to welcome Newman’s individualistic sound framed in straight-from-the-hip rock’n’roll, simmering with the subtle flavors of blues, R’n’B, funk, folk and soul. To hear some of Mark's music, click here. To buy tickets, click here.

The Boston Globe described her “diamantine high notes, witty characterization, and giddily delirious coloratura.” Rachel will be accompanied by Hsin-Chiao Liao, who has graced the UUFSB community several times before with her stellar performance. Tickets are $20 for advance sales online at lepetitsalon.org.
