Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples. During our region’s rich indigenous history, these lands have been home to the Chonnonton peoples (or Attawandaron), the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Métis. We express gratitude for the sharing of these lands. We also acknowledge the tragic history between first peoples and newcomers. We strive to be accountable by acknowledging this history and cultivating respect in our relationships with indigenous peoples and the land.

    Commitment and Failure

    Brought to you by the Blue Team 

    At the last service that we (The Blue Team) put together on September 6th, we encountered various snags and technical problems, which left us musing about the nature of failure and questioning our commitment to this new process! What happens when failure happens within a community? 

     How does our response to failure, both ours and others, affect our commitment/covenant to acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.

     Join us this Sunday as we think about the connections between commitment and failure.

( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    Samhain
  • Rebekah Jamieson. Linda Reith & Lauren Stein
  • On line: This will be a virtual offering
  • We will celebrate Samhain and connections to our ancestors and descendants. In particular, we will use this time to explore the relationship between grief, love and action in our lives. In a recent talk, Robin Wall Kimmerer (author of “Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants”) discussed how grief, whether for a person or the planet, is a mirror of our love. She suggests that grief helps to remind us of what we love, and from that love, we can act to give back - to our families, communities, and even to Mother Earth herself.

    Join us to hear UCG members sharing their personal experiences.
