WEDGWOOD MEANINGFUL MOVIES PRESENTS "HAPPY" on Friday, December 12, 2014Last Updated on 2014-12-11 14:00:14WEDGWOOD MEANINGFUL MOVIES PRESENTS "HAPPY"
Using visits with folks around the globe, as well as experts armed with fairly concrete conclusions, Happy ponders contemporary happiness. Results so far indicate that happiness increases the more one is physically active, performs actions for the benefit of others rather than for oneself, and feels close to family and friends. Having the opposite effect is obsessive pursuit of wealth, material goods, status, and image. But that's just the start of the discussion.
Measure your own happiness index by taking this survey prior to viewing the movie: http://happycounts.org/survey/GNH/WedgwoodMeaningfulMoviesHappy2014
Survey results will be be part of the discussion following the movie.
Please join us for the showing on Friday, December 12, in Nathan Johnson Hall, University Unitarian Church, 6556 35th Avenue NE, Seattle (note... More »
Ebola: UUSC and UUA ask for IMMEDIATE support Last Updated on 2014-12-10 18:45:03Please support the Ebola Epidemic Relief Fund to reach people in West Africa who have been forgotten in the Ebola crisis.

That is why UUSC and the Unitarian Universalist Association have jointly launched the Ebola Epidemic Relief Fund and are asking for your immediate support.
We must raise $100,000 in the next two weeks to reach rural communities and other... More »
