Engendering Vulnerability (Sun. 30 Nov, 2014 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Intern Minister.

This Sunday will be the last for November's theme of vulnerability. Dr. Vanessa Brcic writes that, “vulnerability is an inevitable condition of being human. Power is not.” While we cannot escape being vulnerable, our gender identity and expression is one factor which affects how vulnerable we are, and to what, and to whom. Conversations about gender can be sensitive and complex, yet in many ways it is central to how we experience our lives, even if we wish that weren't always so. This Sunday's service will explore some of these tensions, and will also include a ritual of remembrance for the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, in 1989. I look forward to seeing you there.

Yours on the journey,
Curtis

P.S. This Sunday's order of service will include a feedback form, for you to offer your reflections on the sermon to our internship committee and intern minister. Please consider filling out this form in support of our commitment as a teaching congregation.

Meditation Practice (Wed. 3 Dec, 2014 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm)

This opportunity to meditate will be based on Vipassana or breath focused meditation.

The evening will begin with a reading drawn from well respected Buddhist teachers followed by a 30 - 40 minute sitting session.

The session will support members of our congregation in incorporating meditation into their daily lives, leading to what Buddhists call "right living".

In the Buddhist spirit of generosity, each time you attend, please support our congregation with a donation known as dana.
