January 17 – The Day I Stood Alone – Journey of an Activist
What courage! Photographer Boniface Mwangi wanted to protest against corruption in his home country of Kenya. So he made a plan: He and some friends would stand up and heckle during a public mass meeting. But when the moment came … he stood alone. What happened next, he says, showed him who he truly was. As he says, “There are two most powerful days in your life. The day you are born, and the day you discover why.” (graphic image warning)
January 24 – HERITAGE BUILDINGS in Regina: Why are they important?
Guest Speaker: John Robinson
John Robinson has a keen interest in heritage architecture and buildings for many years in Regina. He’ll talk about the value and beauty in architecture and what it means for us to preserve and promote historical buildings. As an example of a Greek Revival building, our Unitarian Centre is one of a kind and a heritage building of interest. Other styles in our neighborhood include various Revival styles and Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired designs.
January 31 – Sask UU Shared Sunday: Lessons From My Year of Living Spiritually
Guest Speaker: Anne Bokma
Anne Bokma is a member of the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton. She is an award-winning journalist and author of the new memoir, My Year of Living Spiritually: One Woman’s Secular Quest for a More Soulful Life. Anne’s memoir documents her journey away from the fundamentalist church of her youth to finding a home among Unitarians in midlife. She shares insights from her whirlwind year of experimenting with 24 spiritual practices—from singing to solitude to going to a witch camp and heading out on a pilgrimage—and how they taught her to live more attentively and authentically in the world.

December 6 – Amnesty International in Canada – An Update
Guest Speaker: Gord Barnes
Amnesty is well known around the world and in Canada for conducting research and generating action to protect human rights. Gord Barnes of the Regina Amnesty group will give us an update on some changes at Amnesty in Canada, as well as some of the current Amnesty campaigns. We’ll learn about the new Secretary General at Amnesty Canada, Ketty Nivyabandi and how the Write for Rights campaigns are being conducted during Covid. Two of the important campaigns at present are climate change (Amnesty is an intervenor in the carbon tax challenge) and the mining of lithium which is used in batteries. There will be time for questions and answers after the service.
