 See you there.
The topic will be: Meaningful Journeys: 
 Life involves various types of journeys: physical/geographical journeys, journeys in the mind through contemplation or exposure to written or pictorial material, spiritual journeys toward greater spiritual understanding, and creative journeys involving development of creative skills such as music, drawing or painting, and photography. No doubt there are other types of journeys. Each of these can involve "travel" from a point of origin to a "destination".
 What journeys have you taken that have influenced you significantly? How have these changed you? What plans do you have for future journeys? Let's have an open and respectful discussion.

 Spirituality Discussions are held on the 1st Sunday of the month. This is a change to better accommodate participants' schedules. These discussions share personal insights and help us to better know each other and build community. All are invited where everyone's opinions are welcomed and respected. 828 524-3691
I'm very happy to report that we have received the following message from Maethel's daughter, Martha Zeigler:
 "I am Maethel's daughter. She does not do much with e-mail. She does take pride in being the last surviving original member of the UUFF, so please keep her listed as member. Mom is also very hard of hearing and phone conversation is difficult for her. If possible, please contact her via snail mail. She has had her second vaccine and probably would likely welcome pre-arranged visits."
 So join me in writing and visiting with Maethel. If it's not handy, Maethel's address is 290 Red Fox Run, Franklin NC 28734. Her phone number is 828.524.5192 and I have had brief conversations with her on the phone. The email that Martha monitors for Maethel is
Suggested Listening (Warren): 
Why is Bach considered a great composer? Listen to this. It is the Saint John Passion.
 It is no happy dance. Listen to the notes clash in the trumpets, then woodwinds. The strings pumping out almost static harmony. Just when the tension can go no longer, the chorus comes in, but without releasing the tension, they break into the intricate counterpoint for which Bach is so famous, pushing the tension on down the road.

 Listen to this carefully for the full impact. Stress like this leads many to say they don’t like classical music.

A Punny (John): Dad, are we pyromaniacs? Yes, we arson.
A Funny (Warren): It started out as a misty spring morning with the sun coming out to disappear the haze. That Sunday the UU Fellowship was well attended. During the service, the weather took a sudden turn for the worst. The thunderstorm seemed to pop out of nowhere. The lights went out as the lighting struck. The emergency lights revealed nonother than Satin himself. Panic ensued and the congregant storm out of every doorway and a few went out of the window. Satan started the pursuit but was startled by one middle aged lady comely sitting in a pew off the central isle. He was so taken aback, he stopped in his tracks and said, “You can plainly see that I am Satan. Why aren’t you afraid?” “Why should I be afraid? I have been married to your son for 23 years.”
There's plenty of space for your announcement! If you haev something you'd like to feature in the UU View next week, send it over via the form: Smiles, Shalimar
