Do you have thoughts and ideas about adult programs in which you would like to participate in the future? The Adult Religious Exploration (ARE) Committee is seeking your opinions on what programs you would love to see offered. Please answer this short, five-question Survey.

We strongly support using online surveys over paper but if you prefer paper, please contact the ARE Committee and they will arrange to have you to receive one. We look forward to receiving everyone’s feedback by Tuesday May 19th.

church_chair_655New Chair Campaign

Come and join the growing group of sponsors for the new Panabaker chairs. Come out any Sunday in May at coffee time and try out the sample chair we have borrowed.  Then you can become a chair sponsor too.  Each chair costs a total of $81, but any donation would be gratefully received.

On May 24 we will begin our colour poll. We will display the two finalists in the running for the fabric to cover our new chairs, and you will all have a chance to place your dot next to the one you prefer.

Your chair team: Duff Bond, Lynn Nugent, Jane Perry

A Unitarian Universalist and Evangelical Christian on a Plane

What do Unitarians believe if we don't follow one set of doctrines or religious teachings? Here is a simple, heartwarming, and eloquent story that will open your eyes to the Unitarian Universalist tradition - a religion that is spiritual, principled, and welcoming to all beliefs, colours, creeds, and gender orientations. Courtesy of Rev. Tandi Rogers on the occasion of Samaya Oakley's ordination in Vancouver, BC. Samaya was our intern minister here in Calgary in 2012-2013.
