THIS SUNDAY’S SERVICE (10:30 AM):
This Month’s Theme: Welcome
Single Payer Healthcare
Worship Associate: Andy Cameron
The health insurance crisis is probably the biggest domestic policy issue the country currently faces. Some in Congress want to take away the health insurance of tens of millions of Americans in order to give a tax cut to the wealthiest among us. Others in Washington say we just need to tinker with the current system, which has clearly failed to both cover everyone and control costs. The answer: a single payer system, aka National Improved Medicare for All. Come to learn important details; bring lots of questions! Jay Brock, MC, did his medical training in Canada before running a solo family practice in Fredericksburg for more than three decades. He has spoken on single payer healthcare before community and political groups in the area.

EMBRACING THE POWER OF INTUITION AND SELF-ESTEEM : BRIDGING SPIRITUALITY AND PSYCHOLOGY
We are excited to offer this powerful class once again at the UUFF. Based on the teachings of self-esteem guru, Dr. Caroline Myss, PhD., this class combines teaching concepts, as well as interactive writing and sharing among participants. Facilitated by life coach Marcia Grimsley, BA.,MS., students will learn how to listen to and follow their intuition and learn to develop higher self-esteem. Participants will come to understand how self esteem impacts all areas of their life. Without good self-esteem, following personal intuitive guidance becomes very difficult. It is here that psychology and spirituality become interdependent. Students can learn how to live more consciously and powerfully in the world, as well as how to enhance their spiritual growth, and will draw on real day to day challenges to achieve class goals. Join Marcia Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8 PM from October 2nd until October 30th. To register, click here
