December 4, 2016: The Poetry of Our Faith
Service starts at 10:30 a.m.

Invitation to the 2016 Winter Solstice and Feast
In an ancient time, in a time before the written word, a time of story and bard a time when you couldn’t be sure you would ever see the sun again in the dark long winter...
The time has come to enjoy a Family Winter Solstice in the Celtic Tradition, Wednesday evening, December 21, 2016 at 5:30pm in the house living room as the tales of old are told, the returning of light and life. We invite you to bring a pot of stew, cooked root vegetables, berry pies, ancient grain breads, mulled wine or ciders.
Celebrating 125 Years
We have much to be proud of as 2016 marks 125 years of our Unitarian Universalist presence in Winnipeg with free minds and open hearts.
From who we were to who we are now, throughout 2016 we will create opportunities to celebrate our rich historical roots and we look forward to what we are building together now in our community of faith.
The Bridge - December 2016
“Oft expectation fails, and most oft there where most it promises …”
- William Shakespeare
I’ve been getting a head start on the season. December’s monthly theme is Expectation. I’d fully expected to prepare a monthly theme packet, as I do every month. I’m sure you’d expected to read one. Instead, I’ll be offering you a few provocative questions. And for this month’s column, some words of wisdom that just about sum it all up, with gratitude to my colleague the Rev. Jessica Purple Rodela for the inspiration.
