Past Events

Here are some of the Sunday Services we've had in the past - to give you an idea of the neat places we've been and special things that we do!

September 24th 2017: Amanda Tarling “Mindfulness in difficult times”

The theme for our fall services is “Spiritual practices for these times” and we will start by looking at how we can find ways to be deeply mindful and grounded despite being constantly bombarded by harrowing news. Come join us as we investigate together ways to strengthen our spiritual response to trauma and become more resilient and connected.

October 1st, 2017: Amanda Tarling: “Finding a Sustaining Spiritual Practice”

Continuing the theme of “Spiritual practices for these times” we will investigate the Japanese practice of “naikan.” The word naikan means “looking inside” or “seeing oneself” with the mind’s eye.” This spiritual practice is based on asking three questions;

What did I receive today?
What did I give?
What troubles did I cause?

Join us as we deepen our awareness and resilience.

September 10th, 2017: A Message of Love by Dar Levy

In a world where those who are different are still bullied,  still  made to feel less than the rest, where many Transgender Youth still feel that suicide is the only option they have to escape that hurt and ridicule, we of the Unitarian-Universalist faith continue to stand on the side of love and confirm the inherent worth and dignity of all.  Please join us as we take a closer look at what it’s like to be queer, and celebrate how our message of love and radical acceptance can change the world, one queer at a time. 

September 11th, 2016: Our Annual Pride Service with Amanda Tarling, “Pride of Place.”

That old British phrase “Pride of place” is how we at the Unitarian Fellowship feel about Pride. We are a LGBTQ sanctuary that is united in our horror of the Orlando mass shooting and yet thrilled when Prime Minister Trudeau marched in Toronto Pride. Come and celebrate Pride morning with some spiritual time amongst a welcoming community that revels in music, community and all things rainbow.

September 18th, 2016: Fall Fair this weekend. NO SERVICE.

September 4th, 2016: Water Communion Service

September 25th, 2016: Our Monthly Unitarian Singing Service with Barbara Slater

Uplifting 🙂 Don’t miss it!

October 2nd, 2016: Tradition by Amanda Tarling

Tradition has often been seen as a threat. And that’s certainly how it’s felt to many of us at times. We know what it is like to be bound tight by tradition. Suffocated by rules and rituals that limit what we can think or who we can love. So, rightfully, our Unitarian message has long been: “Don’t be afraid to throw tradition out!” But we also know it’s more complex than that. We are not always perfect at it, but for a while now, we’ve also recognized that tradition can be a gift, not just a threat. We’re more and more likely to agree with W. Somerset Maugham, who wrote, “Tradition is a guide and not a jailer.” And not just a guide, but a connection to the wisdom and wonder of the past.
