Risking it All (Sun. 25 Mar, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison. Throughout the month of March, we’ve been exploring the theme of “Risk” in our Sunday services and discussions—taking the risk of vulnerability as we’ve shared stories of risks we've taken (and not taken) in our lives. This Sunday's Message of Inspiration is titled “Risking it All”—but as ordinary human beings, we can be remarkably cautious even in our risk-taking, and that has consequences for the Whole and for our personal lives as well. With a change in outlook, could we dare to fly a little closer to our brightest hopes? What might happen if we did? On Sunday, we’ll hear a classic story of risk-taking in the Time for All Ages, along with beautiful poetry and music to inspire us. Now that Spring is here and new possibilities are budding, may we come together in the shared desire to take the risks worth taking—to build a better world. Blessings, Rev. Lynn View the Order of Service.

Amnesty International (Sun. 25 Mar, 2018 11:30 am - 12:30 pm)

During coffee hour in Workman Hall we will sign letters urging the Canadian government to work closely with its provincial and territorial counterparts and Indigenous organizations to close the gap in supports for Indigenous women and girls escaping violence.

Issues & Ideas: Risk (Sun. 25 Mar, 2018 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm)

Please join us in the Library (next to Workman Hall) for two special book reports on the March theme, Risk. Leslie Solomonian presents Daring Greatly by Brene Brown (Leslie is a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine), and Allan Randall reviews Risk: Why We Fear the Things We Shouldn't -- and Put Ourselves in Greater Danger by Dan Gardner (Allan is Professor of Information and Communications Technology at Seneca College). Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion - you are not expected to have read the book.

Peace and Quiet (Sun. 25 Mar, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

The chalice will be lit, ambient music will be played, opening words will be offered, and there will be a lengthy and deep shared silence during which you may simply be. The service will end after almost an hour with closing words and the extinguishing of the chalice.

Womynspirit Course (Thu. 29 Mar, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Calling the Barge – An Introduction to the Sisterhood of Avalon Join this exploration of the teachings of the Sisterhood of Avalon, a spiritual community of women (inclusively defined) on a journey to cultivate self-determination and personal sovereignty through the five-fold cycle of healing, while building relationships with five Welsh goddesses known through the tales of the Mabinogi: Rhiannon, Ceridwen, Blodeuwedd, Arianhrod, and Branwen. Centred on an exploration of the book “Avalon Within: A Sacred Journey of Myth, Mystery and Inner Wisdom” by Jhenah Telyndru, the founder of the Sisterhood of Avalon. Together we will explore the cycle of healing through the cycle of the moon and the wheel of the year, and explore the stories of each of the goddesses. Co-facilitated by Angela Lytle & Kia LaFey. The facilitators will guide sessions, and the group will function as a gathering of peers to co-explore the work. Note: You will need to borrow or purchase the book Avalon Within. It is also helpful to have a copy of The Avalonian Oracle deck to support our explorations. This six-session series will take place two Thursdays per month: March 8, March 22, April 12, April 26, May 10, May 24. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. To register, please send an email message to Angela Lytle and Kate Chung (with “Avalon Course registration” in the subject line), and with your name, email and phone number. Cost: $20 (sliding scale)

Healing In Action (Thu. 29 Mar, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Is your goal to read, to listen, to speak, to meditate, to contribute, to vote, to heal, to work toward a healthy, just community? Maybe you’re tired? You’re frustrated? You’re looking for a “way in”? You’re looking for that, “GO TEAMMATE, YOU CAN DO IT!” feeling? If you’re in your 20s or 30s, we are reaching out to connect with you. We want to share a place to begin; we want to offer a calm, caring place to take a break. Join us for a night of heartful practices for supporting ourselves and our community. It’s a perfect place to meet new friends who are working right along with you! Together, we’ll explore a range of low-stress practices for writing, speaking, moving— even eating— meant to boost physical energy, diffuse anxious feelings, and help you feel more in harmony with the people around you. Perhaps you’ll encounter a listening/breathing/stretching/reading/reflecting practice that fits beautifully in your regular routine? Healing In Action is hosted by Mairin Smit, Angela Klassen, and Jason Burton. We’ll meet in Workman Hall, the gathering space at the top of the stairs where Coffee Hour gathers after Sunday Services. We’ll be serving light refreshments. Please RSVP by filling out this online form.
