Please join Peter as he speaks about his service entitled, “From Stonewall to Pride.” Gays and lesbians were widely feared and openly persecuted in North America until recent historical times. How did a riot outside a gay bar, and an international medical crisis, lead Canadians of all affections to openly celebrate their GLBT neighbours in Pride parades?
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!
Go enjoy our annual island Fall Fair this weekend as we will not be having a regular service. See you next week for our monthly Unitarian singing service.
Our first singing service of the new season!
In our family-friendly sacred song circles, Barbara Slater teaches us chants from around the world, as well as a few simple songs from the Unitarian tradition. Any fan of Barbara’s Ubuntu song circles around the island are certainly welcome.
Uplifting Don’t miss it!
This Sunday we will not be having a service as the BC Fall Gathering will be happening in Nanaimo this year.
You’re invited to spend the weekend in Nanaimo, B.C. Save the date! Hosted by the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo and Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship.
Please email Katie at email@example.com if you are interested in carpooling or attending the gathering in Nanaimo.
Have we as Unitarians left the theological idea of grace behind? Should we reclaim the concept of grace? Grace invites us to be open to wonder but perhaps we have discarded grace because it has too much religious baggage. Could grace flow in our lives? How do humility and grace inform our spirituality?
No service this Sunday, but please join us next week for our monthly service with Amanda Tarling.
This morning I would like to explore the word “Pride” and why it was the word that was chosen to represent a movement. Wikipedia says “Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. How do we wear our Pride personally, socially, politically, and how does Pride help define our Spirituality.
Come join us for a Pride-filled Sunday service. Everyone is welcome.
