Next Sunday Service, May 22, 10:30 am, led by the Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed
“While Jogging through Life and Running from Fear.”
In Mark’s words: Shawanaga Road is a sandy lane that winds its way down to Georgian Bay. Over the years this road has taught me many things. Because I might always find a black bear around the next bend, and have, I find myself struggling with fear. Given the bombings in Paris, Brussels, Lahore and elsewhere it seems fear is something each of us is going to need to learn to live with.
If you don’t yet know Mark, he is the UUA Ambassador to 5 fellowships in Europe that he visits annually. Previously he served for 26 years as co-minitster with his wife, Donna, in Rochester, New York and Toronto and is a former president of the Canadian Unitarian Council. Currently he is an affiliated faculty member at Leadville-Lombard Theological School in Chicago and coordinator of its Sankofa Archive – a collection of materials about the people of color who were Unitarian Universalist.

Maintaining and Deepening Connections – Card Making as a Spiritual Practice
Tuesday, May 10th, at 7:45pm, led by Karen Frey
A friend of mine regularly sits down and creates greeting cards that she will later send to people in her world. She has told me that both the creativity of the practice and the intent of connection are important parts of her spiritual, intentional, meaningful life.
Inspired by this muse of mine, I’ll bring materials for card-making, will show some of her creations and we will make some of our own cards, plus discuss and meditate on spiritual practices, both conventional and ‘unconventional’.
Bring ideas: people in our community or your personal sphere who you would like to create cards for. (Materials will be provided, but if you would like, feel free to bring any materials you think would be suitable.)
