Sept. 1 “In God we Trust—All Others Pay Cash,” Diane Cameron
In our culture, money is one of our most taboo topics. We all need it, we want it, yet we’re not sure when it’s OK to talk about it. Money has great power, and that power infiltrates our wisdom and spiritual lives. Diane will be speaking about her latest research on money and spirituality.
Diane is passionate about advocacy for people living in poverty and for family caregivers. She is a director at Unity House in Troy and a spiritual coach and retreat leader.
Music: Randy Rosette

Lunchtime Yoga with Leslie Eisele
This fall, Lifespan Learning is offering lunchtime yoga for our members and the community. It will be a one hour class every Friday from 12:15 to 1:15 in Room B-8. There is no charge for the class. All are welcome; no yoga expertise is needed. Leslie tailors the classes to those who come, taking into account their skills and abilities. The first class is Friday, September 6.
Leslie Eisele has been teaching yoga at the YMCA for the past 17 years. With the North Albany Y closing August 30
, several members of Albany UU who regularly attend her classes are very pleased to have worked out an arrangement for her to continue to give lunchtime classes in Albany, while the Y organization works on building a new Albany Y.
We are very lucky that Leslie agreed to offer this opportunity to our community. It would be wonderful if we could give her a room full of eager students. No reservations are necessary. And if you can make it to some classes and not others, that is not a problem. Come when you can.
If you have any questions, call the class coordinator, Dick Dana, at 518-446-0382.
