Call for William Irvine Award Nominations

This annual award honours a person, persons or organization for extraordinary services that contribute to social and/or environmental justice in the Calgary community. It is intended to recognize those who carry on the legacy of William Irvine in championing justice in Calgary, Alberta and Canada. The award recipient has not normally been a member of our congregation. The names of past recipients are on a plaque in the Barker Room and here.
UCC members are invited to send a nomination in writing to Penney Kome, Social Justice Committee Chair, including reasons for the nomination, by October 17. Considerations might include benefits to the Calgary community, personal sacrifice or effort involved in providing service and the degree to which the service reflects Unitarian Universalist values. The SJC will recommend one nominee to the Board of Trustees.

Unitarians Climb for Wilderness

Eleven sturdy UCC – identified folks climbed the stairs in the tallest building in Calgary on Earth Day to raise funds for the Alberta Wilderness Association: Robin Cockett and Polly Knowlton Cockett (who climbed twice), Doug Engh, Ray Giroux, Randy Henderson, Pam Rickey, David and Camilla Romero, Alex and Val Schumacher and OJ Zawalsky. Our RE children climbed stairs in church the next day and collected $183.
Bow Tower climbers ranged in age from 5 to 80. Top UU fundraiser was Doug Engh, who was third highest of all Bow climbers. Total UCC funds contributed to AWA: $5372. Climbers appreciate their donors.
Pictured are those who made it to church the next day sporting the
tee-shirts that all climbers collected as trophies.

Calgary Wins First Prize for World Interfaith Harmony Week! 

The Calgary Interfaith Council (of which our own Rev Debra is a member) has won the HM King Abdullah II of Jordan First Prize for World Interfaith Harmony Week 2017!

In September, Debra brought the idea for a World Interfaith Harmony Week here in Calgary to the newly formed Calgary Interfaith Council, and passion was ignited. A small steering committee guided the idea to actualization: the City of Calgary proclaimed the first week of February 2017 the first ever UN Interfaith Harmony week. The events were coordinated during the first week of February (and slightly beyond) and included performances, visits to houses of worship, Habitat for Humanity build days, lectures and shared meals. The report of what was done was sent to the global organization.

The judges received 79 applications for the prize from over 1054 events held in total – and Calgary won first prize! This includes a cash award which will provide needed seed money as well as the invitation for a delegation to go to Amman, Jordan to receive the award. Debra is incredibly honoured to have been chosen as a member of that delegation.

Congratulations!! [Photo is of the Habitat for Humanity Clergy Build – Debra is in the green T-shirt]

Unitarians Stand Up for Trans People

When 11 year old Anthony heard "stand up, stand up, people of grace” in an anti-trans rap from an Alberta mom, he was offended. This is not, in his opinion, what religion is for. He invited Unitarians from across Canada to join with him in sending messages to trans kids. And they did!

And here are the folks at the Unitarian Church of Calgary showing their support.

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.
