The River of Dreams

September 10 at 10:30 a.m.

The Rev. Meghann Robern, DLFD Andrea James, and Service Coordinator Roger York

We celebrate the power of community and give thanks for each other in our annual multigenerational Water Communion and Ingathering. Please bring water from a source that is meaningful for you, whether it is from close to home or from far away.

Please stay after the service for a congregational potluck!

Gratitude and Generosity

September 17, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.

The Rev. Meghann Robern and Service Coordinator Laurie Marcella

What is the connection between gratitude and generosity? How does living into our UU principles and our shared values lead us to be a truly caring and giving community?

Resilience

September 24, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.

Service Coordinator Steve Lennon

Resilience can mean "the capacity to endure." How can we use resilience creatively, actively, as a tool for doing more than merely enduring? How can being a part of this Unitarian Universalist community help you become resilient in all aspects of your life?

We will be meeting every month to discuss the theme in the living room from 6:30 to 8:00.  All are welcome - you don't have to have been to this discussion before, or have attended the services this month.

Theme-Based Ministry

What is it?

Theme-based ministry is a new way of doing church and faith development that brings Unitarian Universalists together across differences of life experience, age, or beliefs. It’s a way of helping us focus and deepen, both in our spiritual lives, and in our connections to one another.

Each month, we look at a new monthly theme – past themes have included Hospitality, for example, or Compassion. A monthly theme packet is made available with questions for reflection, links to books or film clips to explore, spiritual exercises to try out, and ideas for integrating aspects of the theme into parenting, justice work, personal study, and so on. Some people like to consider each theme in relation to the question, “What would it mean to live a life of … ?”

Throughout the month, the entire community explores dimensions of this theme though aspects of our common life at the church, such as music, meditation, and reflections from the pulpit. There is also a monthly theme discussion group that meets from September through June. Please see https://www.facebook.com/groups/uuwinnipegthemediscuss/ for more information.

Monthly Theme Discussion Group

The discussion group will be taking the summer off, except for one meeting in July when we meet to discuss Evil (big topic, I know!)  We will start meeting monthly again in September once the themes for the year have been decided. If you would prefer a different day of the month than the last Wednesday, this would be the time to let me know.

The next meeting is July 31st at 6:30 at the church to discuss Evil. 

Join us for our once-per-month discussion group on the monthly theme. We meet at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg at 603 Wellington Crescent, in the Dining Room. Bring a snack or come as you are. Also visit our Facebook page here.

For more information or to RSVP, contact the church office at 204-474-1261, or email Teresa Klostriech.

No child care is provided.
