This is a significant day of celebration at UUCD as we convene to hold our ACM following our Sunday morning gathering in which we celebrate beauty and the diversity of life in our annual Flower Communion.
Please bring a flower to share where possible and we will put them all in vases for the service.
Hitch hiking has become less common in recent years, but “spiritual hitch hiking” is on the rise. Peter Lauricella will speak about hitch hiking, “spiritual hitch hiking”, and the kindness of strangers.
Humanism puts aside the supernatural and asks us to live well and provide meaning for our lives as human beings. Let’s take a fresh look at what it means to be human.
An important aspect of our human development is the advancement of our personal character. On this Sunday we will explore author David Brooks’ take on character development, and how such advancements have the potential to enrich our spiritual lives.
The complete sermon can be read below:
Gabrielle Rockenfield and Russell Booth, Grand River Unitarian youth, travelled to New York City to attend the UU United Nations Office (UU-UNO) Spring Seminar in April 2015. Each year the seminar brings in panelists on a specific social justice issue facing the United States, Canada, and the World. 2015’s topic was “Criminal Justice: From Punitive to Restorative”.
Come learn about Gabi and Russell’s experience at the spring seminar, the biggest issues in the current North American criminal justice system, and what the wider UU community is doing to make criminal justice less punitive, and more restorative.
