The UUFLG Social Action Committee, with the Board’s permission and support, invites you to participate in the
Rally for Human Rights, Equality, and Diversity Saturday, August 19 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm Mountain View City Hall 500 Castro Street, Mountain View
We will set up a table representing the Fellowship and encourage UUFLG members to attend the rally. We are also reaching out to area UU congregations and other religious groups.
We will not be political. We will be there as Unitarian Universalists standing on the side of love, as a welcoming congregation, and in solidarity with those advocating for human rights, equality, and diversity.
I have ordered 12 "Standing on the Side of Love" shirts from the UUA bookstore (2 XL, 8 L, and 2 M); they should arrive Friday. The cost per shirt, including expedited shipping and reduced by a quantity discount, is $23. I will wear one and will bring the extras to the rally. Due to time constraints, I didn’t have time to take orders, so I’m sorry if I didn’t order enough or the right sizes.
RSVP: Please comment below or message/email me if you plan to attend.
SHIRTS: If you want a shirt, please let me know when you RSVP for the rally. Let me know what size; you can pay me ($23) at the rally. First come, first sold. I’ll sell whatever is left at the rally.
ALSO: Please let me know if you want to help with planning transportation, decorating the table, and/or making signs. ...

Karma, without metaphysics - a sermon with Rev. Fa Jun
July 23, 2017, 10:30am - July 23, 2017, 1:30pm
The Law of Karma, the Golden Rule, Divine Balance. Most of the great Wisdom traditions of the world have some sense of sacred reciprocity as part of their teachings.
But is there a way that this old school understanding can apply to our modern lives?
Come and explore the notion of Karma through a modern rational lens. We'll see how the ancient Buddhist teachings on the nature of our minds match up quite nicely with modern psychological findings, and also explore sociological and environmental implications of individual actions.
Come to be re-empowered in your virtuous stance toward life, and learn the value of these time-tested ethical understandings!
As you may know, like most UU ministers, I am contracted to preach for our Fellowship for 10 months out of the year, with a 2 month break (usually during the summer). This year I have decided not to take any long stretches of time off without preaching, but I will be scaling back my level of other activities until September.
You may notice that I'm not leading any extra-curricular classes these two months, but I'll still have office hours available on Sundays if you need to talk. I'm also on hand if something important comes up.
Just a quick heads up in case you see a little less of me and wonder where the heck I went!
I hope you have the best summer ever, and I hope to see you on Sundays in the sanctuary with the AC on!

I feel very empowered this morning, because you gave us the tools to transform discord and division into harmony and healing. I'm very much looking forward to the next class!! ...
