airport-welcomeRefugee Sponsorship Update

A welcome party of 16 was at the airport Thursday evening, September 15, to welcome Desalegnn and Workenesh to Calgary. They were extremely tired after two days of travel, and were glad to be finally here. For the next couple of weeks they will be busy with a variety of appointments to get set up for living in Calgary, as well as working with the housing subgroup of the Refugee Sponsorship Committee to find a permanent home.

cookbookCookbook Fundraiser

Have you ever wondered how to make Dean’s Second Sunday Supper meatloaf, Joan’s liver pate or Bev’s gluten-free bread? We know that nowadays all you have to do is Google to find a recipe, however it will not be something that you have eaten at a Second Sunday Supper, the Service Auction Dinner, or one of the many luncheons that we have shared together. This cookbook will included many of these recipes plus your favorite ones. We are asking you to send us your top two favorite recipes; perhaps you have brought it to one of the many potlucks we have hosted over the years. The recipes need to be sent to us no later than October 16/2016. They must be sent to us by email, unless you don’t use email. Please give us a short description of why this is your favorite. We will try to use all the recipes that we receive, however due to space that might not be possible.
Our plan is to have the cookbooks ready for the Christmas season. We are still looking for volunteers to help with the collecting, sorting, typing and other small jobs. Please contact Bev Webber to submit your recipes or to offer help.

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. Check out the names of past recipients and award guidelines.
UCC members are invited to send a nomination in writing to Penney Kome, Social Justice Committee Chair, including reasons for the nomination. 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 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. 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.
