Message from the Ministerial Search Committee
Dear members and friends,
We successfully interviewed three pre-candidates in Winnipeg over the past few months. We toured the church and the city, had interviews and Q&As, attended sermonds/services they delivered, and learned more about how this partnership could work. They had great things to say about our church and city. Thankfully our Winnipeg winter did not scare off any of our pre-candidates!
This process of pre-candidating has taught us so much about our religion and ourselves. The candidates opened our eyes to new knowledge and possibilities. One thing we learned was just how diverse the role of the minister is.
Our next step in the process is to invite one of the candidates to candidating week. We are looking forward to introducing you to each other. Our tentative candidating week is May 6-14. Stay tuned for a schedule! We look forward to your input for and assistance with this week.

The Bridge – March 2017
March, already. In my journey with you as Interim Minister, this time feels almost like an interlude: an unlikely moment of hesitation. Because while now and again I catch glimpses of the day this coming June when we’ll all say goodbye, there’s still time enough for a few remaining detours.
March means another step forward along this bridge we’ve been travelling along together. It feels far from the time of saying “goodbye” to Millie, and quite close to saying “hello” to a new, settled minister. It’s a time of mixed emotions that to me, at least, seems both real, and unreal. It also seems like the perfect time to explore the monthly theme of Journey.
Where Do We Come From?
March 26, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.
The journey to becoming a Unitarian Universalist (or a Unitarian, as members of this congregation used to say) has looked quite different from one era to another. In the 21st century, we have YouTube and the Internet. But once upon a time, Winnipeg Unitarians could do some of their learning via ... Unitarian TV. Come prepared to be surprised!
Service Leader: Rev. Nicoline Guerrier, with Shirley Kitchen
Service Coordinator: Laurie Marcella
