Peter Mayer Concert

October 18th in Founders Hall!

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.

Tickets are available for purchase http://petermayer2014.eventbrite.com

Thanks UUFSD for helping at the Food Bank!

Featured

John & Judy Sherman & Betsy bagged 866 lbs of pears for distribution for those in need in San Diego – in just 2 hours!

Our group also bagged 3,464 lbs of plumbs!

20140807_194100Anyone over 6 years old can help! Our next volunteer night will be Wednesday Oct. 22. Usually 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! Email Sara Ohara at sara@saraohara.com if you’re interested in joining us.

 

 

UUFSD’s Recycling Campaign!

Announcing UUFSD’s Recycling Campaign

Have you noticed the bright blue recycling bins that have popped up at various locations on UUFSD’s grounds? After months of research and planning, the Design Review Committee has brought our waste disposal system up to date. With UUFSD’s goal of ecological sustainability in mind, we ask our members to participate actively in recycling the waste that we produce on our campus.

If EDCO is the waste management company that serves your home, you can recycle at the Fellowship exactly what you recycle at home. For those of you who aren’t familiar with EDCO’s regulations, we are posting signs by the blue bins to guide you. In a nutshell, DO RECYCLE plastic and glass bottles/jars, metal cans, and aluminum foil (all emptied or rinsed of food), and clean paper and cardboard. DON’T RECYCLE paper plates, cups, napkins, paper towels, tissues, cardboard soiled by food, food waste, or plastic bags. KEEPING NON-RECYCLABLE TRASH OUT OF THE BLUE BINS IS AS IMPORTANT AS PUTTING RECYCLABLES INTO THEM. More detailed information is available at EDCO’s website, www.edcodisposal.com.

RE Director Alison Crotty has eagerly agreed to bring the children into our recycling campaign by teaching them what to toss in the blue bins. If you bring children to UUFSD, please guide them until they learn how to separate waste materials correctly.

Thank you, members, for joining our campaign to make UUFSD’s grounds as sustainable and beautiful as possible!

July 27 Service: Whatever Happened To ’Til Death Do Us Part?

Understanding that almost 50% of marriages end in divorce, I make some observations on marriage relationships, and their ramifications on all of society, with special care to not hurt feelings of the many who are divorced, but rather to offer encouragement to all!

July 20 Service: Curves and Edges

Do you honor your own inherent worth and dignity? How do we use our UU values to help us deal with our own self-criticism? How much do we need to care about what others think?  This sermon offers some thoughts on how to be self-compassionate and learn to love our imperfections.
