Sun., Nov 18, “The Beautiful Pillow Show,”11:30 AM – 1:00 PM, Wendte Hall. Join us after service in Wendte Hall where there will be a short performance of “The Beautiful Pillow Show” by Corless Smith, a work that grew out of outrage and chagrin at the homelessness around us.  Wanting to do something personal, Corless arrived at the decision to make 12 patchwork pillows in intriguing designs, tasty colors, and satisfying heft. These pillows will be silently auctioned, and all proceeds will go to the Minister’s Discretionary Fund which the members, friends and allies of First Unitarian Church of Oakland use to minister to those in need who frequently come by the church asking for help.  Don’t miss the “Beautiful Pillow Show”, featuring amazing pillows and a chance to help the homeless. casmith@sfsu.edu.
