10am Sunday Adult Religious Education (ARE) options:
ARE Discussion Group: Meets downstairs in common room. Topic: "Finding Meaning Beyond the Pew." One of the fastest growing groups of Americans is made up of people who don't identify with any organized faith. What has been making people leave religious institutions, and how are they replacing them? Join us to discuss.

Meditation will be held at 10:00, followed by a short reading and discussion between 10:30-
10:45. It doesnʼt matter what type of meditation you do, or if you have ever meditated before, you
are welcome to come meditate in the UUFF Annex building (across Storer from UUFF in the west-
nearest Storer-side of the annex). ALL ARE WELCOME. Enter through the front door.

10am RE for kids 5+ continues today! All are invited to meet in room 2 downstairs at 10am for Religious Exploration, before rejoining adults for the 11 o’clock service. This session introduces public witness as a way to show one's faith by working for a just world.
