So if you are searching for a spiritual community where there is freedom of religious thought, spiritual growth, hope and inspiration, welcome!



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.

    RAINBOW CHORUS
  • Many members of the LGBTQ+ community face struggles as they come out to themselves and those they love. It’s not uncommon to experience discrimination due to transphobia or homophobia. For 25 years now, the Rainbow Chorus of Waterloo Wellington has been a place of belonging that welcomes members of all genders, sexualities, and gender expressions, as well as allies of the LGBTQ+ community. The chorus strives to be a safe place where compassion and solidarity are experienced, as people come together in song. We hope you’ll join us for this popular service during which members of the chorus will share stories of compassion as well as some of their songs

( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    A FINGER POINTING TO THE MOON
  • Rev Linda Thomson
  • More than a few of us react negatively to language that is deemed too traditionally religious. Some argue that its use will misrepresent Unitarian Universalism. In response, some congregations have rejected it altogether. Is the impulse to 'do away with it' helpful?  Does it mean we fail to meet the needs of some, even as we meet those of others? What's a UU congregation to do? 

Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019
( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    WINTER SOLSTICE
  • Earth Based Spirituality Council
  • Come celebrate the return of hope, as the days begin to grow longer and the nights shorter.  We are vulnerable to hardship, disillusion and indifference getting us stuck, so let us come together and gather hope and joy in community and the strengthening sun.
