So What’s Happening in Ottawa?
Matt Meyer will be our featured guest at Friday’s opening ceremony, where we will celebrate the role of music in justice-centered community. What does the experience of music tell us about how we live out our faith in the world? What does it tell us about the community we build together? Join us for a multi-generational service of story and song, rhythm and reflection, and an experience of the holy in music.
Then after the Friday night opening, Tony Turner hosts an open mic Circle of Song night, where you can share your talents.
Saturday will offer a diversity of streams connected by our social justice theme. Children of all ages are invited to join us in celebrating the interdependent web of all existence, while youth “ToUUch the Earth” at CanUUdle.
On Saturday evening, the Host Committee from the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa invites you to their Saturday Night Dance Party, where two bands will play toe-tapping tunes from the 1920s and 1930s, and more recent pop favourites. Bring your dancing spirit!
Our multi-generational day on Sunday, has been thoughtfully planned to bring us back together at an engaging worship service, a multi-generational lunch where all-ages will get to know each other, with workshops aimed at folks of all ages, and shared space to relax, reflect, and recharge.
