Have you felt inspired lately? We all have times of inspriation - and less inspriation - in our lives, our work, and our faith journeys and communities. Where are you at now? How do we cultivate inspriation in our lives when it is harder to find? How do we share inspiration when it flows freely?

Rev. Cheryl Jack - Heroic Self Sacrifice
On this Remembrance Day, as well as honouring our fallen military heroes, we will pay tribute to ordinary people who have felt the need to sacrifice their lives for others. What are the reasons behind these ultimate sacrifices? Is there anything or anyone that you would consider dying for?
Rev. Cheryl Jack is minister emerita of the UUCD. She lives in Beaverton with Andris and new family member, Domino the Shih Tzu. Life in small town Ontario agrees with her and she finds plenty to keep her busy including participation in the work of “Big Sisters of Durham Region”.
Ric Jones - This Way to Baggage Claim
This presentation will offer a very brief look at three components related to the 'stuff' that we all carry -- social location, shadow, and family systems and how each relate to congregational life and our own personal lives. This positive message will provide some new perspectives that will enhance our own personal journeys and the life and health of this beloved community. Ric will likely use one of the components mentioned in this service as a springboard for his next topic here in the early part of 2013.
