Our worship service on Sunday, May 6, will be The Blessing of Welcome Across the Generations - New Member Sunday with Asha Philar and Rev. Diane Rollert, and music by Sandra Hunt and the Yellow Door Choir directed by Roxanne Martel.
A community of all ages is a wonderful blessing, but it isn't always easy to navigate generational differences. How can we become as welcoming and inclusive as we aspire to be? What are young adults looking for in Unitarian Universalist communities? For that matter, what are ALL the generations looking for? Asha Philar will share insights from her research and work with congregations over the past year, and reflections from Unitarian Universalist young adults across Canada. On this day, we welcome the newest members joining our congregation. 
Asha Philar works for the Canadian Unitarian Council supporting youth and young adult ministries, including local programs and regional and national events.

Lunch to Honour the Nakhla Family: Everyone is invited to join us after the service for a
special celebratory lunch in honour of the Nakhla family. This is the one-year anniversary of their arrival as refugees from Syria and our sponsorship.

Earlier in the week, Seeking the Sacred in Stories, facilitated by Rev. Diane Rollert, will meet on Tuesday, May 1 at noon. The Caring Network meets on Thursday at 3:00 pm.
