Sunday, August 6, 10:30 am
Tim Byrnes will be exploring the concept of love beyond a feeling or karma and as an energy. As energy requires a source and cannot be stored - so too for love. In realizing love as an energy, we seek to discover our own personal source and the infinite power of giving all our love to everything in every moment. The music will be by Gabie Allain and Martine Savard.
Sunday, August 13, 10:30 am

Worship Service Sunday
Listen to the voice of a witness to the forgotten, valiant Spanish anti-fascists, from their revolution beginning on 19th of July, 1936 to their liberation of Paris, the 24th of August 1944.

Search for Meaning
Search for Meaning will be presented by Hari Thakur. The musician will be Basil Vandervort-Charbonneau.
Our search for meaning can be a two-fold challenge: It can be an existential issue, where each person seeks to live a life that is meaningful to him or her. There can also be a search for meaning at the global level. Understanding why the sky is blue; the four seasons we experience or the place of nature in our lives.
Victor Frankl, the well-known author of “Man’s Search for Meaning”, addresses the issue of the personal search. As for the search for meaning at the global level, we have Charles Taylor, a well-known author and philosopher from Montreal, as our guide. The presentation will be followed by a period of questions and comments from members of the congregation.
