"Good News for Aging Brains and Bodies," a Powerpoint/lecture by Tom Davis,
Ph.D., a psychologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., will be
presented by psychologists Wayne and Carla Anderson. Davis focuses on recent
research that will help you reach the goal "to die young...as late as
possible." Among the factors discussed will be cultivating a positive
mind-set, learning about the cognitive benefits of exercising, choosing
mentally stimulating activities, finding de-stress strategies, fighting free
radicals by eating food loaded with antioxidants (including dark chocolate),
enjoying the benefits of sex, and noting some advantages of senior
disobedience and humor.

– Potluck Luncheon
On the first Sunday of each month from September through May, we gather for
loving fellowship and hearty eating after worship so we can get to know each
other better and build lifelong friendships. We invite all guests to join
us, whether or not they have brought food. Everyone pitches in, making light
work of setup, serving and cleanup. We ask those attending to bring a main
dish or side dish sufficient to serve six-eight people so we will have
plenty of food. More potluck information.
Because this all-congregation activity cannot be sustained without willing
volunteers to help with setup and cleanup, there will be a signup sheet for
the next month's potluck on the buffet table; if not enough volunteers sign
up, the potluck will not be scheduled.
In addition to your potluck contribution, please remember to bring one or
more non-perishable food items for the food barrel upstairs near the coat
rack. When the barrel is full, the food is taken to the Central Pantry,
which serves Columbia and Boone County.
YRUU (Young Religious Unitarian Universalists), our
high school youth group, is meeting at noon on most Sundays. Check the YRUU
