November Service Schedule

Monthly Theme: Courage

Sunday, November 4, 10:30 am: Courage Spirit Jam

Spirit Jam services are multigenerational with time all together and time to explore the theme in a smaller focus group.

  • Courage to Speak Up! – Wickenden Hall A conversation and inquiry of why we do, do not do and what stops us.
  • Courage to Act! – Experience Improv Drama led by members of our Youth in the Bird and Stone Theatre downstairs.
  • Courage to Create! – Join us in Room 1 as we create an amazing collaborative Unitarian art piece, using tissue paper collage.
  • Courage to Sing Out – So many have had the experience of being told they can’t sing, oh yes you can, take a courageous leap and try in the safe space of our sanctuary.

Sunday, November 11, 10:30 am: The Courage to Wage Peace

This is the annual day set aside to honour veterans, their courage and sacrifice, and we will do that; it is also a day that recalls and heart the presence of war. Can we have the courage to wage peace?
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk and Cathy Welburn
Music: Music Director Jane Perry with Chor Vida

Sunday, November 18, 10:30 am: Differently Abled, Courageous?

This morning’s service is inspired by Ian Clipperton and will include his new member ceremony. Ian has numerous ability concerns and welcoming him as a full member has required us to confront some interesting issues. While he has inspired this service, it is about more than just him. The service will be filled with music and celebration as well as some challenges.
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk, Penny Clipperton, Barbara Lane and Mitch Graham
Music: Music Director Jane Perry, Unitarian Choirs and musical guests.

Sunday, November 25, 10:30 am: Faces of Courage

The term courage may conjure up the idea of acts of bravery or daring, but there are many faces of courage and acts of bravery. Some of us can be less than daring, perhaps even downright ordinary, yet we are every bit as courageous.
Service Facilitators: Jeb Gaudet and Rev Debra Faulk
Music: TBC

What to Wear

We tend to be an informal group.  Basically, no one really concerns themselves with what others are wearing. As long as you are comfortable and respectful to self and others, it really does not make any difference how dressed “up” or dressed “down” you are.
We are striving to be a scent-free space. Please refrain from wearing perfume, after-shave or other scented products.
