Join Foundation Program in Miami- Any Wednesday in September!

What is Foundation Program? Foundation Program (FP) is a structured study program designed to support you in taking your practice of Buddha's teachings to a deeper level. It was designed by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso as one of the three study programs in the New Kadampa Tradition of Buddhism.

What will I learn? We are currently studying the book Eight Steps to Happiness: The Buddhist Way of Loving -Kindness, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, and are still quite close to the beginning ~ a perfect time to join! Classes focus on meditation, study, and discussion of the topics in the book.

When and where does the class meet? Every Wednesday, 7-9:30pm, on an ongoing basis, at the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation of Miami, 7701 SW 76th Ave, Miami, FL 33143

Where can I go to learn more? Visit our website HERE for more information, or e-mail our Education Program Coordinator if you have any questions.

NEW BEGINNINGS PLEDGE DRIVE

The Board of Trustees has been busy working on long term solutions, including investing in a wonderful sta, reaching out to the community with programs to stimulate your mind and inspire your heart, creating facilities enhancement & endowment funds to encourage planned giving, & much more. All this needs to be dome from a sound financial footing by eliminating our $64,000 budget deficit. Please do your part by participating in Our New Beginnings Matching Pledge Drive. If you already made your pledge earlier this year, thank you, but please look deep in your heart & consider increasing your pledge by completing a special pledge card. If you have yet to pledge, please take this opportunity to make a commitment of financial support to our loving congregation. Special pledge cards are available at back of the sanctuary and in the oce. Simply complete a pledge card and give the card to Susie or a member of the Board. Thank you very much.
