    November 23, 2014: Living Our Faith

    Guest speaker: Vyda Ng, Executive Director of the Canadian Unitarian Council

    The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU0 UNO) had long been an independent entity comprised of both Canadians and Americans. But with the merger of the American component with the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), Canadians formed a separate CUC UU UNO, now partnered with the UUA UU UNO. Our CUC Execu­tive Director Vyda Ng will talk about the forming of our own independent CUC UNO, our partnership with UUA UU UNO, and the vital role of our CUC UNO both within Canada and with our UU UNO Office.

    Rev. Millie Rochester

    The British scholar and author Karen Armstrong has adopted compassion as a focal point of her work, calling it “the heart of all religion,” and devoting her efforts toward helping to create Charters of Compassion all over the world. This morning we explore what compassion looks like. In practical terms, what does it mean to live a life of compassion?

    Rev. Millie Rochester; Director of Religious Exploration, Andrea James; Music Director, PJ Buchan

    The traditional Christmas Story resonates for many Christian Unitarian Universalists – how is it relevant for those of us who are not? This year’s all-church pageant, which includes our Choir, addresses the richness of these perspectives, and our long-standing custom of decorating a Mitten Tree. Your donations of mittens, scarves and toques will add to its beauty.

  • Covenant of Right Relations

    Covenant of Right Relations

    We, the members of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, confirm our Covenant of Right Relations.  As members, we seek to make our church a safe space for everyone.

    We acknowledge that we are different from each other.  We recognize that we are enriched by our diversity and that our differences will sometimes be a source of conflict.  We acknowledge that we are all responsible for our own words and actions.

    In this light, we covenant to:

    • Nurture a safe and welcoming community.
    • Honour each other’s inherent worth.
    • Assume good will on the part of each other.
    • Listen to each other with care.
    • Speak to and about each other with respect.
    • Be honest with each other.
    • Talk directly to each other even if differences exist.
    • Ask for help when conflict is too difficult to handle alone.

    From September 2014 through June 2015, we will explore a specific value each month, and consider how we are inspired to embody that value as religious people. Our overarching theme for the year is a challenge to ask ourselves, "What does it mean to live a life of...?"  Each month we'll provide a packet full of resources on the monthly theme. Included in the packet are exercises, inspiration, external resources (books, videos, music etc.), and "Questions To Live With".

    Themes for 2014-2015

    Most of the engagement with the packet will happen on your own. The resources are there to allow you to explore a topic through an entire month, at your convenience and to whatever depth you choose. Sermons during the month will app
