Question Box (Sun. 8 Apr, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton & Rev. Lynn Harrison Join us this Sunday, as Rev. Lynn Harrison and I will engage the congregation in a time of “Q&A” during the service. In lieu of a traditional sermon, Lynn and I will respond to as many questions as we can, in as meaningful a way as possible. Earlier in the service, everyone wishing to lift up a question will be invited to do so by writing it on an index card. We will then endeavour to group similar questions together and provide our reflections on the topics raised. So, between now and Sunday, listen for the question that’s on your heart—about, perhaps, what it means to be Unitarian, or about some pressing theological question, or some aspect of our shared life as a community. While there will likely be more questions than we can get to—and the very real possibility that there are questions that cannot be easily addressed without more time or deeper thought—we are looking forward to spending this time together in a more improvisational way. Any rest assured that the questions we may not be able to get to will inform sermons in the future. See you on Sunday. In faith and love, Shawn View the Order of Service.

Peace and Quiet (Sun. 8 Apr, 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. 12 Apr, 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)
