Feb 25 - Nurturing Our Spiritual Growth Through Music

Service Leaders: Unitunz Musical Band

Throughout our lives we encounter many opportunities for growth. Many of us are fortunate that we have opportunities to share this path with an incredibly diverse group of companions. The Unitunz music ensemble has been making music together for over ten years, challenging each other to create spiritually inspiring services built on a musical platform. Today we will present some of our favourite highlights from the past and share with you some of our stories from being part of this group… how its has both challenged and nurtured our spiritual growth. Come prepared to sing along, clap your hands and stomp your feet… we’ll be sure to warm your hearts and, hopefully, inspire your growth!

COPING AND COMPASSION
Martha Savage

March 11: Coping and Compassion

Speaker: Martha Savage

We all cope with the stresses and strains of life in our own ways. Take time to consider how we come by those strategies and how we choose which to use in a given situation. By understanding how this decision process is impacted by issues like socio-economic factors, mental health and addictions we can cultivate greater compassion for ourselves and others.

Martha Savage, a member of our congregation, combines personal experience with mental illness with a professional perspective as a psychiatrist (medical doctor specializing in mental health) to provide compassionate, respectful and hopeful insight into the lived experience of mental illness.
