SHOWING UP!
Ben Robins

Title: Showing Up

Humans are social beings. We come together in times of need, and we come together in times of celebration. We weave our lives together. Being in relationship can be hard, but somehow we keep showing up. Together, we'll explore ways in which our interdependence calls us to show up for ourselves, show up for each other, and show up for the larger world.

Ben Robins is training to be a UU minister. He is the Program Director on the Board of Unicamp, and he just completed a term on the Nominating Committee of the Canadian Unitarian Council. He enjoys community living, conversation structures, and improv spirituality.

CAN YOU IMAGINE?
Lynn Hancock

June 3 - Can you Imagine?

Speaker: Lynn Hancock

Service Leader: Mel Horvath-Lucid

Come experience the wonder of giant bubbles! Five years ago, Lynn Hancock was introduced to something called “bubbling”. Fascinated, she decided to further explore this new phenomenon of  “bubbling” in the parks of Toronto. Inspired by the reactions of others, she discovered the benefits of setting an intention of letting go. This is an opportunity for connection and community, as well as a reminder to make room for play and creativity in our lives.

GENDER IDENTITY: A SHARING OF DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES

June 17 - Gender Identity: A Sharing of Different Experiences

Service Leader: Matt Lucid

Speakers: Panel of Guests

It can be hard to keep up with the ever growing list of terms used to explain and express gender: cis-gender, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, transgender, and agender are but a few. As more and more people today are challenging gender stereotypes and norms, and are becoming increasingly comfortable expressing their gender identities, a wider vocabulary is being used. Join us a panel of gender non-conforming folks and/or their parents share some of their experiences and connections within the community.

FLOWER COMMUNION AND NEW MEMBER SERVICE
Janice Canning

June 24 - Flower Communion and New member Service

Service Leader: Janice Canning

 

The Flower Communion is a Unitarian Universalist ritual, where we each bring a blossom to add to a communal bouquet and each choose a bloom to take with us. These flowers represent the diverse beauty found within our congregation and the natural world, and together they are united to create a wonderful bouquet. This service is also an opportunity to celebrate our community, by welcoming new members and babies, and by recognizing the amazing efforts of our dedicated volunteers and staff. Please join us at this final service of the 2017/2018 congregational year.


If you have a baby or a child/children you would like to be welcomed by the congregation, or if you would like to become a member of the congregation, please contact Mel Horvath-Lucid, our Director of Congregational Life & Learning: DCLLGuelphUnitarians@gmail.com
