This Sunday, we'll draw inspiration from books by two Indigenous authors:
Each year of the Canadian Unitarian Council's Annual Conference, a minister, selected by their peers, gives a "Confluence Lecture" on a topic of their choice with the hope that it will inspire and challenge Canadian UUs across the country. This year, Rev. Anne Barker shared her insights entitled "A New Premise" in 3 parts and has made them available for congregations to use. This Sunday Rev. Anne will be our speaker via the first part of her Confluence Lecture; the full lecture sparked significant and meaningful sharing at the recent CUC conference, going more than an hour and a half past the scheduled end time. Attending this Sunday gives UUCDers the opportunity to be part of an ongoing national discussion.
An intergenerational service of sharing, mutual support, fun, and humour. Please bring something for 'show and tell' - a joke, a story, a picture, a video, a song or anything else that has either brought meaning in your life over the last year, or things you are looking forward to in the coming weeks and months.
How do you steer in a world that is constantly shifting under your feet? Come hear the story of the 75,000 person UU humour group, and its accidental beginning. And what it teaches us about navigating in a world of constant change.
“When I think about the world, especially right now, I see a myriad of ways people are suffering and I hope and pray for healing. But sometimes healing doesn't look like cure or eradication of pain and harm. Sometimes healing comes in unexpected ways. I'll share a personal story as we explore different understandings of healing in our lives.”
