Time and Talent Auction

It’s time to start thinking about our winter 2019 silent auction – what time or talent can you donate?
The annual Time and Talent Auction is a fundraiser for our community that invites members to share what they have with others in the community through a silent auction.
Last year, there were fantastic art lessons, beautiful handmade objects, delicious meals, adventurous outings, and many other great opportunities to get to know members of our community.
What can you offer for the Winter 2019 Time and Talent silent auction?
You most likely have a service or talent you have not considered, but that would be valued by someone else. What about donating chess or bridge lessons, or a learn to knit session? What about delicious baked goods (and maybe even the recipe)? Or dog-, house-, or baby-sitting services?
Blank Bidding Sheets are available in Wickenden on the bulletin board and here in Word and PDF formats. Just complete the upper section and put it in the auction mailbox in the church office. Bidding for this year’s auction will be held on three consecutive Sundays: January 27, February 3, and February 10.
Questions, ideas, donations, or interested in volunteering with the auction?
Talk to Lisa Hurrle or Jeb Gaudet.

Multi-Faith Calendars are Here!

The theme for the 2019 edition is Coming Together: Exploring New Connections. All the artists’ submitted works based on this rich theme and the variety of subjects and techniques is no less than inspirational!
Every month offers a chance to learn more about world religions, gain awareness and understanding of your friends’, neighbours’ and colleagues’ faith traditions and observances. The calendars demonstrate a commitment to equity, diversity, human rights and multiculturalism and are a great way to support UU Youth! Purchasing a calendar helps Youth attend great events like Youth Con and CanUUdle. Look for the Youth selling the calendars during coffee time on Sundays; get yours for only $20!

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.
