October Food Bank Volunteer Night
Wednesday October 22
Join us at the San Diego Food Bank in the Miramar area; just 20 minutes from UUFSD! It’s always from 6:00 – 8:00 PM – anyone over 7 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help! Check out the pictures.

Dr. Ansar Haroun, Professor of Psychiatry at UCSD, will present a lecture on the biological, social, psychological, and religious underpinnings of the concept of “happiness”.
For the last 25 years, Dr. Haroun has been a psychiatrist in San Diego, practicing the conventional biomedical model of treating unhappiness / depression, but also studying alternative models, which incorporate the wisdom of the great Masters (Buddha, Jesus, Ghazali and Farabi etc).
He will synthesize the wisdom of the sages, and explain where the western biomedical model should or should not be applied.
Dessert and Coffee will be served!!

Peter Mayer Concert
October 18th in Founders Hall!
7:30 – 9:00 PM
Renowned Minnesota singer-songwriter Peter Mayer (‘Blue Boat Home’) “writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk”, and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.” Visit www.petermayer.net for more on his music.
DATE NIGHT – Childcare Provided!
