Upcoming Sunday Services
What Does It Mean To Be People of Vision?
Soul Matters – the intriguing name for a group of people in the US that provide worship resources for ministers, RE staff, Sunday Service committees, and music people. Last year the Sunday Services committee used three themes in our ‘church year’. This year we will be using three more new themes and have purchased resources from Soul Matters. We hope you find that the themes and reflections provide deep meaningful services.
Our first theme will be in the month of November. The question is “What does it mean to be a people of VISION”?
November 4 – Ethical Consumption
Panel Discussion with Guests Jenine Kozey, Ingrid Alesich and Wybo Ottenbreit Born
As Unitarians, our Seventh Principle urges us to respect the interdependent web of all existence. How do we walk the talk when it comes to ethical consumption? What responsibility do we have to avoid buying from companies that use bad labour practices? Do we grow our own food, or only buy second-hand, or stop driving gasoline-fueled cars? Our panel of three will share their ideas and actions on ethical consumption. Then share your own ideas with us too.
November 11 – Being A People of Vision When It’s Cloudy,
Guest Speaker Liz James
What does it mean to be a people of vision when it’s cloudy? Especially, when those clouds are thunderclouds? When we feel surrounded on all sides by hostile forces and there is an exhausting amount of work ahead, how do we live with joy and purpose?
Potluck Sunday – Join us for food and fellowship after the service
November 18 – Reflections on the Theme of Vision
On November 11th, Liz James talked about maintaining our vision when times are hard. Today, we’ll have a chance to share our ideas and reflections about the monthly theme and last week’s talk.
Vision can mean many things to each of us. Today we’ll be using three questions to start the discussion. Please keep the comments to reflections on the theme.
How do you see your Self as a person of vision? What person of vision has influenced you? How do we nurture a personal or collective vision?
November 25 –The Climate Crisis: Threats, Solutions and the Need for Leadership
Guest Speaker Jared Clark
In October 2017, Jared Clarke travelled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to attend the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training. During the three-day workshop, he learned from 7 world class scientists, as well as former Vice President Al Gore about the climate crisis. Now back in Saskatchewan, he has been sharing the message with hundreds of people that we need to act!
Join Jared for a presentation that looks at recent events across the globe being caused by climate change and what it means for Saskatchewan’s future. From intensifying storms, increased flooding events, more severe droughts, dwindling glaciers and arctic sea ice, the evidence of climate change is overwhelming. Learn about the solutions at hand and what we as individuals can do.
