If I Can't Dance, It's Not My Revolution? (Sun. 5 Jun, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Chris Wulff.

As we take up June's theme of "Revelry," we will have the pleasure this Sunday of hearing from our Seminarian Chris Wulff before he and Ariel Hunt-Brondwin move to Victoria, where Chris will serve as the Intern Minister for the next two years. Before they leave, it will be my honour to lead the congregation in dedicating their new son Rowan on Sunday morning during the service.

Later Sunday afternoon, we'll celebrate the tremendous accomplishment thus far of our Syrian Refugee Project, which has now brought five families to the safety and stability of a new life in Canada. It is right that we pause to revel this powerful work we, as a congregation, have done over the past year.

Finally, it was such a great joy to welcome Rev. Lynn Harrison to First Unitarian last Sunday, when it was announced that she will serve, starting in mid-August, as our new Minister of Community Engagement. Lynn brings wonderful gifts to us, and I am truly thrilled at the opportunity we have to work together as a ministry team. My deepest thanks to everyone who raised their financial commitment to help make this effort to increase First's impact possible.

In faith and love,
Shawn

On this Friends of NVT Sunday donations may be made to that social justice project.

Issues and Ideas (Sun. 5 Jun, 2016 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm)

You are invited to a mildly bibulous Season's Grand Finale of our book discussion circle on this month's topic, “Revelry”.

Fred Lautenschlaeger will present Between Heaven and Mirth by James Martin, and Bill Belfontaine will demonstrate Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul by Stuart Brown.

Come and join the revels and be prepared to share your own takes on the topic. And please gird your loins to be one of our reviewers in the 2016-17 season - as soon as the topics are announced I'll send out a mailing.

Cheers,
Gerta

Save A Family from Syria (Sun. 5 Jun, 2016 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

You are invited to an afternoon feast of Middle Eastern cuisine along with a special Syrian cultural performance.

While we often celebrate the closing of the year with a picnic in Eglinton Park, it wasn't in the cards for us to obtain the needed permit for our preferred date.

One of the things we most want to celebrate this year is the generosity and commitment of so many in our congregation and beyond who have helped to welcome five newcomer families from Syria. Whether you made direct or indirect contributions to the effort or held good thoughts in your heart for the well-being of our newcomers - you're invited to join the celebration.

Join us on in Sunderland Hall.
