Apr 25 – Julien LeBourdais – A Photographic Odyssey - from Stanley Cups to Prime Ministers to John Lennon
Julien will share the highlights of his 30 year career as a photojournalist with photographs including the Leafs winning the Stanley Cup, five Canadian prime ministers, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Queen Elizabeth, rock concerts, celebrities and villains. He will ask us if it's true that "a picture is worth 1000 words" or that "the camera never lies".
As Unitarian Universalists, we value diversity and inclusion; openness to people and to perspectives is one of our core values. In this service we'll explore the ways in which we live this well and the ways we falter, taking an honest look at the diversity in our midst and the invitations for transformation that are knocking at our door.
There is no word, historically, for "religion" in Arabic, Mandarin or the many languages of either India or the Indigenous Americas. It is solely a European word. These origins have created a bias in what we think "religion" is, which impacts our attitudes and even our law systems in regards to religion. Today, we will experiment with taking those lenses off and looking at how some diverse religions can be understood when we see them more clearly.
In celebration of Easter, we'll explore truth - what do we believe to be true, how do we decide what is true as individuals and in community, and how does our understanding of truth evolve over time? The story "The Emperor's New Clothes" will be our time for all ages and will be a starting point for exploring truth alongside the Christian Easter story.
