MONDAY
JOBSEEKER BUDDY GROUP
Theresa Howe, Tom Neel, Ed Yee, 9:30-11am, Library

The jobseeker buddy group is a support group for people that are looking for a new job or to transition into a different job. We typically go around the room and review the activities from the prior week, provide support and ideas for what could be done in our respective job searches, provide each other with referrals, tips, resume critiques, etc. It is a great way to keep the momentum up during a job search and relate to others in a similar situation.

MEDITATION
null
James Hencke, 8-9 p.m., Library

In meditation practice, we allow ourselves to dwell in the present moment. We find that by developing our awareness and compassion we can open ourselves, relax into situations, and enjoy our life!

FIRST CHURCH BOOK GROUP
7:30pm, Library
Karl Klasson and Anne Stuart

In November, the First Church Book Group will celebrate another night of poetry when we will share, ponder, savor, and discuss the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop.

Please note, we will meet a week early on
Wednesday, November 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the PARLOR (not the Library).

During much of her lifetime, Bishop was not well known, but she is now regarded as one of the most significant American poets of the 20th century. We invite you to delve into her work and come prepared to read one of her poems that speaks to you, or to just come and listen. You can find her work in libraries and on the web. One place to start is the Poetry Foundation at:

http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/elizabeth-bishop#about

The Book Group is always open to new members and does not require a continuing commitment. Please contact Anne Stuart at astuart@uubelmont.org with questions and to confirm attendance. The Book Group will not be meeting in December.

 

 
THURSDAY
SCIENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
7:30pm, Conference Room
Ken Bernstein and Edwin Taylor

Rino DiBartolo will lead a discussion on C. P. Snow’s
Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution.
“Oh, those are mathematicians! We never talk to them.” a Cambridge University don reassured a visitor who could not get a response from men on either side of him at High Table. At MIT the tables can be reversed; humanities professors may feel the need to justify their presence on the faculty of this engineering school.
C.P. Snow writes beautifully: Why not read the entire short 54-page book posted at eftaylor.com/SandS? If pressed for time, stop at the top of page 38.

 

KNITTING CIRCLE
8:00pm, Classroom #4
Eva Patalas

Come join us in the fun and fellowship of knitting with a genial group on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. Projects could include knitting for non-profit organizations such as Caps for Kids, making small gifts for the Holiday Fair or working on personal projects. Everyone is welcome and no commitment is necessary. Contact Eva with any questions.

 

COMING UP:

PREQUEL TO MAJOR MUSIC
Wednesday, December 3, 7:30pm, Parish Hall
Ian Garvie

Ian will help us to understand the intricacies of what we know and love about G. F. Handel’s
Messiah Part I.

The music includes exuberant choruses, poignant solos and mystical recitatives which tell the Nativity story.
