What's Happening September 21 -27, 2015

Join us this Sunday, September 27 at 10:30 am for Don’t Take Care, Take Risk with Rev. Diane Rollert with music by Sandra Hunt. We can have some pretty inaccurate notions about what is dangerous and what is safe.  When it comes to understanding risk, our emotions can either lead us to be too cautions or too foolish. But what if we told each other “take risk” instead of “take care”?  This Sunday morning, we’ll actually take a few risks together as we explore the rational, emotional and spiritual side of boldly (but wisely!) taking more risks.

The Social and Environmental Concerns Committee is starting a documentary film series this fall in honour of our Ruth di Giovanni. Sunday, September 27th at noon, the first film in the Ruth di Giovanni Documentaries Film Series will be Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret. It is a ground-breaking feature length environmental documentary.

Les activités en français

Nous avons réservé les quatrième vendredis pour les soupers communautaires où chacun(e) apporte un repas à partager. Vers 19h30 nous nous organiserons pour recevoir des conférenciers, ou visionner des films toujours suivis d’une discussion. Amenez vos ami(e)s, c’est une façon de leur faire partager les valeurs de notre communauté unitarienne universaliste en français. Si vous avez des suggestions pour des conférenciers et des films, laissez-le-moi savoir pour mieux organiser les soirées. Hannelore Poncelet au 450-653-5694

Sunday, September 27, Noon - Thomas Room
The Social and Environmental Concerns Committee is starting a documentary film series this fall in honour of our Ruth di Giovanni, a longtime social activist who died two years ago. Her sons donated money from her estate for this purpose.

The first film in the Ruth di Giovanni Documentaries Film Series will be Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret. It is a ground-breaking feature length environmental documentary following the filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. This film has been shown only twice before in Montreal.
