UUFS News & Announcements
UUFS Rummage Sale
When: Saturday, October 21, 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. (setup begins at 8:30 a.m.)
Where: Bernardo Parking Lot
Have you been wanting to clear out your garage, closets, or kitchen cupboards? Now you can do that with the added incentive that your no-longer-needed items can generate income for the Fellowship. If you’d like to participate, begin now to identify and set aside those things you no longer need/want/love or, as Marie Kondo says, no longer “spark joy.”
Remember: dust off/clean your items so they are attractive to buyers and then price your items using blue painter’s tape and a Sharpie pen.
Intergenerational Game Night & Potluck
When: Saturday October 21, 5:30–8:30 p.m.
Where: Shephard Hall
Bring board games, cards or other games and a dish to share, plus something to drink. This is a family-friendly event to which all are welcome. Join the fun! Questions? Contact Patty Petrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free Parking for Coffee Mugs!!
When: Starts October 22nd Before the Service
Where: Shephard Hall
Let’s work together to help sustain our beautiful “Blue Boat Home” by reducing our Fellowship’s use of single-use supplies. We’re encouraging folks to bring their own reusable cup from home for our Coffee Hour by offering free drop-off parking in our new Reserved Mug Parking in Shephard Hall before the service. And if you like, you can bring a spare to share with someone else! (Shared Mug Parking will also be available.) Note that we don’t currently have on-site storage for mugs so, for now at least, they’ll need to go back home with you afterwards. Please contact Wilma Chu at email@example.com with any questions.
Our Interest Group & Volunteer Fair (Part 2)
When: Sunday, October 22, 10:30-11:00 a.m.
Where: Outside Shephard Hall
During our time for coffee and conversation this morning you are all invited to learn more about both our Life Enrichment Programs and our Ministry Teams. This is a great opportunity to find out how you can dive more deeply into activities you enjoy while enriching your relationships and strengthening our Fellowship. Groups meet both here at the Fellowship and in member’s homes. These various groups offer support, promote social justice, feature vibrant discussions of books and other topics of interest, and give you the chance to get to know other Fellowship members in smaller group settings.
Sunday Supplement: Learn about Funds Now for Legacy Giving
When: Sunday, October 29, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Where: The Chapel
What role do our Unitarian Universalist values play in how we shape a legacy? A legacy gift can help sustain our free faith of hope, reason, service and love and keep our chalice burning into the future. And right now, for a limited time, UUFS has a unique opportunity to take advantage of a generous offer from the Shelter Rock Church, for some funds now, for legacy gifts. Please join us in the chapel following the service to learn how you can help UUFS and other UU organizations qualify now for funds equal to 10% of your legacy gift.
Sharing Our Spiritual Autobiography Group Meetings
When: Sundays, November 5 and December 10, 11:00 a.m.
Where: Room 9
The Sharing Our Spiritual Autobiography Group has scheduled three more meetings to be held on the first Sundays of the month through the end of 2017.
Newcomers are welcome to join and participate. In this interactive group, participants reflect upon and share their spiritual autobiographies. Some of the questions we have been asking are: How do you connect with something greater than yourself? What personal experiences have led your beliefs to grow? What is at the center of your meaning system? and, How are your conceptions of social justice evolving?
It is not necessary to attend all sessions and you don’t have to (although you can if you want) write an actual spiritual autobiography.
Sunday Supplement: “Changes, Challenges, Choices…and A Lot of Luck”
When: Sunday, November 12, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Where: The Chapel
Long-time UUFS member, Ursula Gobets, will be speaking about her recently published memoir, “Changes, Challenges, Choices…and A Lot of Luck.”
Born in Berlin in 1926, Ursula (Uschi) lived during the Nazi years, through Germany’s depression and recovery to World War II’s utter defeat, destruction and aftermath. Shortly after the blockade and airlift of West Berlin in 1948/49, she immigrated to USA. She tells of her life in her new country, of marriage, family and moving with her family from New York to Sunnyvale, CA in 1956, where she and her husband, Arthur, bought the house which is still her home. Her memoir ends in 1961, her 35th year which, she feels, marks the end of her immigrant years and the beginning of a more typical American life.
