April 30 – Dwelling in the Space Between


Guest Speaker: Rev. Linda Weaver Horton

One dimension of the current UU Principles is the pairing of complementary values that are in some tension with each other.

A both/and worldview, rather than an either/or is one way to step away from Euro cultural dominance.  Spirit arising in the “between” spaces is a core part of Rev Horton’s theology.  Are there times when you have found wisdom in the between spaces?

Her Name Was Margaret: Life and Death on the Streets


Speaker: Denise Davy

Ms. Davy met Margaret while on assignment one cold winter night.  Margaret was a sweet-natured young girl who played the accordion and had dreams of becoming a teacher until she had a psychotic break in her teens, which sent her down a much darker path. Homelessness is a huge crisis in communities across North America. Denise’s talk is aimed at dispelling some of the myths around who the homeless are, and talking about what we, as Unitarians, can do to help solve the problem.

Ms. Davy is a nationally recognized award-winning journalist who worked at the Hamilton Spectator for 26 years. She is the founder of Purses for Margaret which provides toiletries to homeless women. She is also a long standing member of the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton.
