This Changes Everything
Are you interested in participating in a Common Read? A Common Read hopes to build community within our congregation by providing a shared experience, common language, and a platform for meaningful conversation and reflection.
Please read Naomi Klein's book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.
Synopsis: "Klein argues that climate change isn't just another issue to be neatly filed between taxes and health care. It's an alarm that calls us to fix an economic system that is already failing us in many ways. Klein builds the case for how massively reducing our greenhouse emissions is our best chance to simultaneously reduce gaping inequalities, re-imagine our broken democracies, and rebuild our gutted local economies"
This Changes Everything is available through the Winnipeg Library digitally, and in book form. Please let us know if you have a copy to share.

Adult Programming Committee
Formed in 2010, the Adult Programming Committee encourages the development of members’ UU faith and promotes adult learning. Our goal is to enhance individuals’ physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being within our shared UU principles.
The Adult Programming Committee is comprised of volunteers, generally meeting at noon the first Sunday of the month. Current APC members are:
- Anne Belanger (Co-Chair)
- Sonya Watson (Co-Chair)
- Shannon Breckman
- Lynn Campbell
- Heather Emberley
- Kathleen Hays
- Ivor Lockhart
We welcome new Committee members with an interest in adult learning. This is a creative ministry, where you will deepen relationships, grow, and have fun!
Program facilitators are church members or friends who donate their time on a volunteer basis. We seek volunteer facilitators with knowledge of the subject matter, facilitation skills, and attitudes congruent with UU principles.
