October 5 – BALLOT DISCUSSION (AND OTHER RELATED CONCERNS)     Bring your official “voter information” guide and other information.  John and Carol Simpson will lead this program to help us to get ready to vote November 4th. Bring whatever concerns you may have and to add to our discussion.  The Simpsons will moderate.   

October 12 – AMERICAN TRANSCENDENTALISM   The era of 1820 to 1860 were the years when a group of liberal minded reformers sought to reform what they thought were the evils of their time.  The most well known were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, and Theodore Parker.  Meron Castain will share what he read and will lead the discussion. 

  October 19 –  PURITY, POLLUTION, DEFILEMENT----A SERMON THAT SEEKS TO DEFINE WHAT IS DIRTY.  Our friend, the Reverend Emeritus Ernie Pipes returns to give us something to think about.  Ernie Pipes has served the Unitarian community of Santa Monica and continues to be an active voice in his retirement.  

October 26 – JOURNEY TO ONENESS:  THE BIG PICTURE   (filmed by Global Spirit).  This is a DVD of interviews with internationally renowned scientific philosophers Deepak Chopra and Riane Eisner.  They share a lot of “food for thought”.  Come to listen and discuss.  Penny Hendricks will moderate.
