Wonder-full!

Sunday Service: Wonder-full!

June 18th, 2017 - 10:30 AM                   Rev. Fiona Heath

We are full of wonder for all ages Flower Ceremony.  Dress in your brightest colours and bring a flower or a few for our community bouquet.  We’ll have a rainbow of a time as we celebrate with bubbles, song and laughter and choose a flower to take home.   

Stay after the service for our annual end of year bbq lunch.

Worship and more...

On Sunday mornings at 10:30am, we come together for an hour of worship. As Unitarian Universalists we belong to the earth and celebrate the mystery.   

As a Unitarian Universalist, you might believe in God or Goddesses, or be an atheist. Our tradition focuses on the common ground of being part of the interdependent web of life, turning to scientific as well as spiritual knowledge for wisdom, and respecting the inherent worth of all beings. Our focus is “right here, right now”, on living in the present as best we can.

We value questioning and wondering. We know there is no single path, no single truth. We have no sacred text, no central deity, no core belief. Our symbols include the chalice, the spiral, water, flowers, the web of life.

Our worship services focus on giving worth to that which is worthy. We try to celebrate life in all its wonderful, terrible aspects, sharing our joys and our sorrows. Services include singing, meditation, and a reflection on a theme.

Our neo-pagan group SourceFire offers monthly worship services on the third Thursday of the month.

 

 

Rooting for Each Other

Sunday Service: Rooting for each other

June 4th, 2017 - 10:30 AM                   Rev. Fiona Heath

Last year we adopted a new purpose: to Deepen, Nurture and Act.
It’s in our DNA.

I find our purpose, our DNA delightful.  It recalls us to our unique religious roots in scientific knowledge, while calling us to a larger purpose.

I hope all of you also feel a sense of connection to our purpose.
To deepen in spirit, to nurture community and to act for an equitable, sustainable world are three interwined ideals.

Art in the Hall - April 2017 - Layal’s Art Group

Lalayalyal’s Art Group

This group of friends have been meeting on a weekly basis at Layal’s studio for over ten years. Between the laughter and chats the group manages to create art pieces that are unique to each individual’s style and inspiration. This group paints for the love of art, and has no care to what is trendy or fashionable. Their painting is an expression of their vision of realty expressed on canvas.

What you will notice in most of the exhibited pieces is the dominance of strong primary colors and emphasis on landscape and architectural details, both of which are a signature style of this group.

Getting together every week to paint motivates them and helps them create and practice different techniques. Although each artist has his or her distinct style, they all share in their love for art and in the promotion of an art culture in our city, whether through art shows, new artists or interesting art events. They believe that there is an artist in everyone!

We always welcome new members!

Theme Based Ministry

In September 2015 we begin our experiment with theme based ministry. UCM joins hundreds of other Unitarian Universalist congregations in using monthly themes as a framework for spiritual deepening.

Each month, a selection of resources will be posted on-line and available on paper at the congregation.

Our first theme is Listening.

Please visit our theme website for details.  uucmthemes.wordpress.com
