The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and henceforth the first week of February will be observed as a World Interfaith Harmony Week. The City of Calgary is proclaiming February 1-7, 2017 to be World Interfaith Harmony Week in Calgary.
The Calgary Interfaith Council is sponsoring a week of events, including site visits (one to our own church) and even a Habitat for Humanity build. Check out what’s happening!
This year, instead of a one evening event, we are going to hold bidding on your wonderful offerings after the service on 3 Sundays, February 26th, March 5th and March 12th. Bidding sheets will be laid out at church on these Sundays, outlining details on each item offered. (And for those unable to be at church those days, you will be able to submit your bids from a distance.) Then from March 13th – 26th, the winners will be notified and money collected for items won.
This is a silent auction of goods and services donated and bid on by YOU, members and friends of the congregation. It is a great opportunity for members to interact with one another on a more personal level while contributing to our community. During January and February, we will collect donations from members and friends of the congregation–anything from food and non- food items to hosted activities, and a multitude of services. Guess what! You most likely have a service or talent you that would be valued by someone else. Think about it. Let’s get creative here, in keeping with our month’s theme.
Please fill out a Bidding Sheet and submit to the Time and Talent Team.
Yes, Leslie Buckle will be the recipient of the Panabaker Award for 2016-17, which will be given out at the January 29th lunch. Leslie is a great musician: a long time member of the church choir and a
participant in TriUU, and the backup accompanist for those Sunday services when Jane Perry is off duty. She is a past Board member and Treasurer, and is the chair of the Membership committee. Currently she is co-chair of the Refugee Support Committee, with Marsha Haug.
Please plan to attend church on Sunday January 29th and the lunch following, to join in the celebrations of this award.
The 2016 William Irvine Social Justice Award Recipients are Chantal Stormsong Chagnon and Cheryle Greyeyes Chagnon. This mother-daughter activist team and founders of the drum group, Sisters from Another Mother, are regular participants and organizers of many social justice events in Calgary, especially one focusing on women’s and indigenous justice.
Please share in honouring these women during the service on December 11.
Rev Debra Faulk has issued a challenge to the congregation to read the full Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Report Summary!
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.
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.
