What's Happening November 30 - December 6, 2015

Join us Sunday, December 6 at 10:30 am for Creativity and Creation with Rev. Diane Rollert and Jim Scott who joins us to share his music and thoughts about imagination, creativity and ecology.  He has long been an active UU, and was the Co-Chair of the ecological/spiritual activist group the UU "Seventh Principle Project.”  Many of Jim’s songs and arrangements are included in our songbooks, including Gather the Spirit and Let This Be a House of Peace.

The first Sunday of every month UCM collects items for the NDG Food Depot. Dry pasta, canned fish, and disposable diapers are urgently needed, as well as pouches of baby food, infant formula (consider individual servings, which can be shared among families) and feminine hygiene products.

After the service, SECC will hold a letter writing session in honour of Human Rights Day. From noon to 1:30 pm, Rev. Diane Rollert and Margot Hovey Ritter will be leading the Sunday Explorations Group to introduce the month’s theme.  Based on our Exploration Group model of respectful listening, these sessions are open to anyone

Creativity and Creation
Jim Scott with Rev. Diane Rollert with music by Jim Scott
Jim Scott joins us to share his music and thoughts about imagination, creativity and ecology.  As composer and singer-song writer, Jim’s travels have taken him around the world.  Formerly of the Paul Winter Consort, he has performed with Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, the Griffith Singers, Paul Horn, Holly Near and others.

Human Rights Letter Writing (Amnesty International), after the service, Phoenix Hall
The Social and Environmental Concerns Committee will hold a letter writing session in honour of Human Rights Day. We will supply pens, paper, envelopes and stamps. We hope to have a good turn out of letter writers for cases supplied by Amnesty International. You will find us, as usual, at the corner table in Phoenix Hall after the service. One letter can make a great difference in a prisoner's situation, showing authorities that he/she is not forgotten and that the world is watching what is happening in their country. Please come and write a letter for freedom of thought! All are welcome!
