Psychometry of Our Loved Ones
Hi, everyone. For our Mediumship Class on Thursday on Zoom we will be working with psychometrizing photographs of our loved ones. If you plan to come to this class, please send me a photo of a loved one or two who is in spirit. Do not identify to me who the person in the photo is. At class, we will intuitively pick up information about the people in spirit in the photos.

• A minimum of four students is required for a class. Please let Frank know by 2 pm Thursday if you plan to come: Send an email, text message, or phone call

On the Interpretation of the 9 Principles on the NSAC website
written by By Joseph P. WhitweIl, Third NSAC President.
Moderator: Lindy Cacioppo
UPDATE Moving to Two In-Person SCOL Services: Our church is planning to begin having two hybrid services (services that are in-person at UUFSB and also live-streamed on Zoom) a month at UUFSB starting in October. We plan to have a hybrid service on Oct. 1 and 22. For the months that follow, wait for additional emails with more information. If we have enough people attending these two services, we will continue to have two hybrid services for the months that follow.
At this point, we are not requiring you to wear a mask but you may certainly do so. (Health protocols may change due to changing NY state and UUFSB mandates.) The room for our services in the Religious Education wing has two portable air-purifying systems that will be used during the time we are there.
We require a minimum of four people to attend (not counting the platform workers and helpers). Please let us know if you can commit to coming, and how often, to our hybrid services. Also, we are looking for more people to serve at our hybrid services. If you have an interest in offering a Spiritual Address, offering a guided meditation, or being a greeter, please let us know in an email. Please email our church with your reply or for any questions you may have: email@example.com

Spiritual Healing Requests
Spirit healings result from law-governed forces being put into operation following the sending forth of a thought directive (prayer). Spirit guides and doctors will diagnose the trouble and its cause, attention being directed to overcoming the cause, and then removing the symptoms.
Please set time aside each day to send healing thoughts for each of those listed below, that they may receive from Spirit that which is for their highest and best needs. Your healing prayers are needed and benefit others in ways we may never know.
To request that a name or situation be placed on this healing list, please send a
note to firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force
To remove all obstructions
From my mind and body
And to restore me to perfect health.
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty
And I will do my part.
I ask this Great Unseen Healing Force
To help both present and absent ones
Who are in need of help
And to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust and love in the power of God.
Prayers for all those who have experienced violence and abuse.
Prayers for areas affected by recent natural disasters around the globe.
It is a pleasure for us to serve Spirit and our
community. Here is a list of the Board Members
who are here to help you. Blessings.....

September 9 - October 2
Mercury Retrograde through Libra and Virgo
The third Mercury Retrograde of the year starts on September 9, lasting until October 2. Mercury will enter retrograde in the air sign of Libra, making its way back into the earth sign, Virgo, on September 23.
As Mercury moves through Libra from September 9-22, it may highlight our relationships. Old relationships may come back into our lives in some way, or we may feel it necessary to leave some relationships in the past. We may also feel confused or indecisive about a certain relationship in our lives.
As Mercury moves through Virgo from September 23 onwards, we may need to address the motivation behind our daily habits, particularly the habits that relate to our health and well-being. Is our motivation rooted in alignment or somewhere else?
Mercury ends its retrograde on October 2, but won’t be back to its former strength and energy until October 16. https://foreverconscious.com/intuitive-astrology-mercury-retrograde-september-october-2022
