Meditation Group
The Meditation Group meets next on Tuesday, April 14 at 7 pm in the Skylight Room. Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice of mindfulness that leads to greater stress resilience, improved memory and increased empathy. Everyone is welcome whether you have experienced this practice before or are brand new to it.  Please join us!  Any questions, please contact Ellen Herling at   


Knitters Group - and all other Needlework of choice!
Each Tuesday morning beginning at around 9:30 am, a group gathers in the Fogg Parlor for handiwork, coffee, and conversation.  Some come for the whole morning and bring a light lunch. Others drop in after Tai Chi class or errands. Some come for just the coffee and conversation. Whatever your interests, please drop in and join us - no agendas and no requirements.  Just a great group who care!


Fogg Lecture Series - Bill Schulz
The Helen Fogg lecture series on Sunday, April 12 at 3 pm. The lecture will be by Bill Schultz. He leads the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) in advancing human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. Previously, he served for 12 years as executive director of Amnesty International USA, until spring of 2006. An ordained Unitarian Universalist minister, Schulz is a former president of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Schulz has appeared frequently on radio and television news and analysis shows and is the author or contributing editor of several books, including In Our Own Best Interest: How Defending Human Rights Benefits Us All; Tainted Legacy: 9/11 and the Ruin of Human Rights; The Phenomenon of Torture; and The Future of Human Rights: US Policy for a New Era. The New York Review of Books said in June 2002, "William Schulz has done more than anyone in the American human rights movement to make human rights issues known in the United States."

He graduated from Oberlin College in Ohio, received a master's degree in philosophy from the University of Chicago and a doctor of ministry degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School at the University of Chicago, and holds eight honorary degrees.
