Finding What's True
April 30, 2017 AT 10:30 a.m.
Our fourth principle urges us toward a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning." As we've moved in recent years from questing after "truth" to "truths," some surprising discoveries have been made along the way.
The fourth in our series lifting up stories from the heritage of this religious community.
Service Leader: Rev. Nicoline Guerrier
Service Coordinator: Marlene Schellenberg
Announcing Our Ministerial Candidate, Meghann Robern
The Ministerial Search Committee is proud and excited to announce our ministerial candidate, Meghann Robern!
Meghann hails from California but has most recently been ministering at the First Unitarian Univeralist Church of Nashville. If you missed it at our service this week (April 9), we shared with you some of the things we found most exciting about Meghann, and how she meets the criteria set out by you. This includes her ability to minister to a wide range of beliefs, her great communication skills, her excitement to work with our youth and young adults, and her interest in social and environmental justice.
We are excited to bring Meghann and her family to Winnipeg in May for candidating week. Meghann and her family will be here from Saturday, May 6 to Sunday, May 14th. Soon we will be putting together the schedule for candidating week, and will be asking for our congregation's participation.
Check out the video Meghann's family put together for us: http://bodilyintegrity.com
Deepening through …
Our monthly theme for April 2017
Theme-Based Ministry Resources from the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg
Of all the themes we’re looking into this year, Blessing is the most explicitly religious. One of the reasons why non-members traditionally looked to our movement’s Lay Chaplains or ministers at times of birth, death, and marriage, has been the search for blessing.

The Bridge – April 2017
Someone asked me recently, “What will you miss the most about Winnipeg when you leave?”
It wasn’t hard to answer.“The people, of course.” And by that I meant, you: the people I have come to know through my two years among you as Interim Minister.
I will miss you. I am starting to miss you already, not because I’m quite ready to leave, but because I’m beginning – just a little - to let my imagination reach toward how it will be when I leave at the end of June.
And so, as I think back over these past 20 months, it feels like just the right timing for April’s theme: Blessing.
