Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don't go as planned. Mr. Gilbert believes that, in our ardent, lifelong pursuit of happiness, most of us have the wrong map. He argues that our brains systematically misjudge what will make us happy. Our TED Talk will be led by Linda Rich.

TED Talk: You Are Fluent in This Language (and may not even know it)

Sunday, October 13 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Olmsted Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 5050 Porter Road
North Olmsted, OH 44070 United States

Without knowing it, we are fluent in the language of pictures. In a charming TED Talk packed with whimsical drawings, artist Christoph Niemann takes us on a visual tour that shows how artists tap into our emotions and minds without using words. Jim Carney will lead the discussion. As a mathematician, he appreciates symbols and brevity. He wonders if usually verbose UU's could imagine using words in simple, symbolic ways to more clearly express our beliefs and values.

Sunday Service – Belonging: To Ourselves, To Each Other

Sunday, October 20 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Olmsted Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 5050 Porter Road
North Olmsted, OH 44070 United States

Belonging is a human need. But America is a loner's culture, equating strength with going it alone. Those who don't belong are at risk - for self-harming, depression, addiction, joining gangs, cults and extremist groups - especially among youth. How are we (our congregation) doing - harmonizing individual growth with collective needs, expressions and creativity? Our service will be led by Rev. Mary.

She has dumpster-dived all over the USA and helped Fortune 500 businesses see the waste they generate in a new light. As Ecova’s*…
