August 22 “The Inherent Worth and Dignity of Every Person” (via Zoom)


In the words of Emerita Anne Treadwell, Minister of Kitchener, Ontario UU Church, “There’s no challenge or moral stretch involved in acknowledging that our favourite people are worthwhile, but there’s a big challenge in recognizing the worth of people who we may find anything from mildly unattractive to morally repulsive.” Ingrid Holcomb invites you to revisit the 1st UU Principle through words, music, and meditation, and to either recommit or revise your relationship to it.

10AM
Outdoors and via Zoom

September 5 “Indigenous Land Acknowledgement: It Matters Every Day” (Outdoors and via Zoom)

Academics of colonialism point out that when Europeans came to North America, the Indigenous people had “commerce, economics, permanency, stewardship, inheritances, artistry, drama, ceremony, mourning, health care, politics, justice, penance, peacekeeping, and still do.” As UUs, it is necessary for us to acknowledge the stolen land we stand on every time we come together. This is in keeping with many of our principles. Join Aimee Ledwell as she details those connections and discusses how to respectfully address the injustice of our colonial history.
