Foreign Intrigue

Jun 26 2016 - 9:30am

They say “travel broadens one.” Whether it’s the pleasure of sharing insights with a new friend from another culture, the exasperation of trying to communicate with no language in common, or the sheer adventure of travel, it  deepens us. Come hear - and share - your own stories of travels which affected you deeply.

Art in Prison

Jul 10 2016 - 9:30am

If you had been a fly on the wall at the Northeastern Correctional Center any Thursday night over the last 15 years, you would have seen FUSN volunteers and incarcerated men busy with pieces of paper, colored pencils, stencils and glitter glue. Come to share some of the men's art and find out what it's like to enter a different world where people aren't so different.

Hope and Art

Jul 17 2016 - 9:30am

What can we learn from artists about how to create a fulfilling life, and how to find hope in our darkest moments? Three FUSN artists - a painter, a musician and a sculptor - will describe the nature of art and what it brings to their lives. Come and consider the artistic facets of your life, and indeed, explore the possibility that our own lives ARE our our ART!

Multifaith Relationships

Jul 24 2016 - 9:30am

Most FUSN families have diverse religious backgrounds. What passions are generated by the religions we grew up with? How do we create vibrant  families that honor diverse passions? Em Mueller, a rabbi who has conducted many interfaith marriages, will discuss the enthusiasms of Judaism and her experience with interfaith relationships. Bring thoughts about multifaith reckonings in your own life.

Experiencing Our Older Selves

Jul 31 2016 - 9:30am

What is it like to feel old? What mix of joy, sorrow, worry, relief, awareness, loss and such do we newly feel as we near the end of life? Through words, poetry, and music we’ll look inside ourselves. Time will be set aside for congregant sharing.
