 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
Suggested Listening (Warren)
The guitarist plays the notes of both the melody and accompaniment, the same as a pianist. Only, the guitarist can be said to form all of the notes with only one hand!

A Punny (from John): Writing my name in cursive is my signature move.

A Funny from Warren: A friend was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside.
The Pastor said to him, “You need to join the Army of the Lord!”
My friend replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.”
Pastor questioned, “How come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Easter?”
He whispered back, “I’m in the secret service.”

There's plenty of space for your announcement! If you have something you'd like to feature in the UU View next week, send it over via the form: https://forms.gle/u3wJmmVFhAgNWseJ6
