THE WORTH OF OUR FIRST PRINCIPLE
Rev. Lori Kyle

October 22 - The Worth of Our First Principle

Speaker - Rev. Lori Kyle

Service Leader - Janice Canning

There has never been a time in world history where it has been so easy to question the worth of our First Principle.  Literally daily we learn of horrific acts of violence around the globe that challenge our faith in the tenet that all people have worth and dignity.  On this Sunday we will explore the nature of these challenges as we strive to remain faithful to this important UU guidepost.

We are looking forward to welcoming Lori Kyle back to our congregation. Lori completed her Master of Divinity degree and was ordained in 2014. She has been the half-time minister at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Durham for two years.

SAMHAIN - SUMMER'S END
Janice Canning, Earth Based Spirituality Council

October 29 - Samhain - Summer's End

Service Facilitator - Janice Canning, Earth Based Spirituality Council

Samhain, meaning "summer's end," is a celebration of the end of the harvest, halfway between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. Halloween, All Saints' Day, All Souls Day and Día de los Muertos are all related.

This season we have been gifted with a spectacular. multicoloured reminder of the very present cycle of life and death as the fall colours transform our outer landscape from vibrant green to frigid browns and blacks. This service of Samhain (Sowhen) invites us to honour those who have passed from our lives this year and to celebrate the ways that knowing them has transformed our inner landscape. You may choose to bring a photo or memento to acknowledge and honour your beloved dead.
