The service on Sunday, July 9 at 10:30 am, will be Finding Our Place in the World Through Beauty and Compassion. Community artist Brenda Cleary explores the humanitarian and deeper existential significance of learning to tune into beauty in our environment, ourselves and one another. In the words of Dostoyevsky "beauty will save the world". Arguably creating beauty is what we must do to our world to make our place within it. Join us to explore ways in which aesthetics open our hearts through the doors of our senses and help us make sense of it all. The music will be performed by Louise Halperin. 

After the service, join Derdre McCay from 1:30-3:30 pm at Westmount park (weather permitting). The group will meet at the front door of the library for free Drop-in Art Classes: Drawing and Painting Enjoy an afternoon outside in nature trying something new! Member of the congregation and art teacher, Deirdre McCay, is offering free outdoor art classes for the first three Sundays of July. This course will be a chance to explore either drawing or colour media (watercolour, oil pastel, etc.) with guided instruction as needed (more info).
