Thanks to those who attended the monthly meeting on Sunday, Aug 4! Here are the August Minutes if you missed it.
In our efforts to increase transparency, help Mystic Grove friends and fans keep up, and assist forming CUUPS chapters and other groups, we’re making it a goal to make more of our documents “public access” as we continue to revise our website.
The next meeting is Sept 1, 2019 at Noon in Room 1. Guests welcome to observe and learn how we work.

On Sept 26 we end the series by “Celebrating Wheel of the Year” and “Potluck Celebration Dinner with Sharing Final Projects.” Last session is led by Cat.

Comparative Religion begins on Oct 10. This is a twice a month class on Thursdays. This DVD series offers you an opportunity to gain a solid grasp of the key ideas of religion. Using five major religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism) as illustrations of how religions can address the same core issues in parallel and different ways, award-winning Professor Charles Kimball of the University of Oklahoma leads you on an exploration of religion’s complex and multidimensional nature that can help deepen your appreciation of your own beliefs and the traditions followed by others.Class is free with $5 per class donation welcome to replenish supplies.

Nothing to repair? Bring beads for a “potluck beading” activity and learn to make bracelets, necklaces, or earrings! $5 donation welcome to replenish supplies.
