Service Facilitators: Joan Rentoul & Norah Menzies

Why do congregation members Joan Rentoul and Norah Menzies believe in the power of grandmothers to succeed in social justice work?  

Come and find out how they are putting the 5th Unitarian Principle—the goal of world community, with peace, liberty and justice for all—into action.

Joan has been involved with social justice issues all her life and is involved with an organization that honours the role of elders in the family.

CANADIAN UNITARIANS - CENTRAL REGION FALL GATHERING

The Unitarian Congregation of Guelph welcomes you to the Central Region Fall Gathering 2018 – “Creating Theology Together”

This ‘Creating Theology Together’ program provides an opportunity to explore questions that humans have always asked. In our congregations it has, at times, been challenging to discuss theological questions, because our love of individualism has made it seem as if conflict would be the inevitable result. Yet, if our congregations are to help us explore questions of meaning we must learn to listen to others and to share our own ideas. 

If our congregations are to understand who they are, and how they matter, they must be able to be the place where this work is not only possible, but celebrated. The program will draw on the work of Dr. Michael Hogue, of Meadville Lombard Theological School and will introduce participants to the practice of creating theology together.

SAMHAIN: SUMMER'S END
Earth Based Spirituality Council

October 28 - Samhain

Service Facilitator - Earth Based Spirituality Council

Samhain, meaning "summer's end," is a celebration of the end of the harvest, halfway between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. Halloween, All Saints' Day, All Souls Day and Día de los Muertos are all related.

This season we have been gifted with a spectacular, multicoloured reminder of the cycle of life and death as the fall colours transform our outer landscape from vibrant green to frigid browns and blacks.

This service of Samhain invites us to honour our loved ones who have passed from our lives this year and to celebrate the ways that knowing them has transformed our inner landscape. You may choose to bring a photo or memento to acknowledge and honour your beloved dead.
