We are asking for love donations at this time during our online church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are not meeting in person so can't pass around the offering plate to help us with ongoing operating expenses that need to be paid: partial rent, full insurance, Zoom fees, payment to the national organization, to name a few.

Tuesday October 4
St.Francis of Assisi Day, World Animal Day
We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.~Immanual Kant
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.....
