Today for our final song we are going to sing This Little Light of Mine, with its refrain of I’m going to let it shine.

It’s a lovely, lively song, and while we sing it often, I realize I don’t think about the words all that much.

This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.  
It’s so easy to sing, but not so easy to live.

"Life in a Puddle"
I can say I have lived a good life. Not always easy, but it seems to have worked out fine. I never thought of myself as a photgrapher. I was a daughter, sister, an entrepreneur, a wife, a mother and a grandmother before the beauty of life struck me visually. I actually had a great camera sitting in a box for 6 years before a family tragedy sparked me to realise that the beauty of life could be short lived and that I needed to capture and share that beauty. My desire led me to some great online communities of photographers and artists that inspired me even more. Finding friends who shared my passion for photography was so uplifting and it encouraged me to continue. I think at this point, my lens truly opened up. My eyes began to see all the caring and nurturing that mother nature put unto our beautiful green Earth.  Photography really became a soothing and enjoying pastime in my life. I would schedule days to be "shooting" days and wander the great Ontario countryside and, as of late, the maritimes. Friends, family and colleagues provided me with continuing encouragement, as I developed my craft. I am happy to have grown with a following of wonderful people and I continue to find joy and peace through my photography.

My "Life in a Puddle" series developed from a fellow artist Claire Weissman Wilks, who loved the image of the lady of life, a likely gasoline spill in a puddle that appeared like a beautiful woman. She inspired me to look for more amazing puddle shots and I did. Prior to that moment, I was mostly shooting landscapes, but now my eyes also traveled downward. Life can show beauty at any angle, You just need to know where to look.

I hope you enjoy my collection and are able to share in the hidden beauty within.

My name is Fiona Heath and I have had the privilege of serving this congregation as minister for the past 3 years.  This Sunday actually marks 3 years since the vote to call me as your settled minister.

It’s been a wonderful time and gone by too quickly.  I look forward to many more years of meaning making with you.

As you have gotten to know me, you are probably aware of a few things.  
I’m an introvert, I like science fiction, and I drink tea.

SourceFire November Ritual - The Beaver Moon

The PastJoin us for SourceFire’s November Ritual in the Great Hall of UCM. It is the time of the Beaver Moon. Beaver is independent and industrious, and prepared for the cold times. 
It is time to finish all the activity of summer, store away the last of the harvest and tie up all our loose ends in preparation for rest and reflection by the warm hearth of winter.
Winter is a time when we evolve in spirit. 
Now is the time to prepare and protect ourselves so that we are ready to make the most of the depth of the dark time to come.

Patience Morrisey


Patience Morrisey will be flying solo in this exhibition about the lives of the rare Chimney Swift Swallows nesting in the Old Oakville High School.  It is with great enthusiasm and interest that Pay has been inspired to create art about the natural environment.

Pastels and prints are from Pay’s sketches of the bird’s flight paths, feeding on insects, and diving into the tall chimneys of the old school next door to Pays residence on Reynolds Street in Oakville. Pay, a longtime member has been making art for all the years of UCSP/UCM.
