April’s theme is WISDOM.

April 5, 2015 10:30 AM   “On Easter:  Heart of Paradox.”

Rev. Jessica P. Rodela and the Spirit of Life Choir directed by Curtis Dueck.  

Parker Palmer writes: “we live in a tragic gap -- a gap between the way things are and the way we know they might be. It is a gap that never has been and never will be closed. If we want to live nonviolent lives, we must learn to stand in the tragic gap, faithfully holding the tension between reality and possibility.”

April 26, 2015 10:30 AM  “Mood More Than Logic.” 

Rev. Fred Cappuccino with Service Leader Rev. Jess. 

The talk is inspired by a truism from Jean Chretien: “The public is moved more by mood than logic, by instinct more than reason, and that is something every politician must make use of or guard against.”  Fred will also touch on Alice Munro, Al Franken, and Peter Morales, current president of the Unitarian Universalist Association.            
Rev. Fred is a co-founder of Child Haven International. 

 

Welcome to our Congregation!

Photo by John SmirniosWe are a liberal religious community that draws inspiration from its Judeo-Christian heritage as well as the wisdom of world religions, our direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder, the words and deeds of prophetic women and men, humanist teachings, and the spiritual teachings of Earth-centred traditions. We include believers, doubters, and seekers; those who pray, those who meditate, and those who pour their souls out in song. We pledge to support one another in our individual searches for truth and meaning. Will you join us?

We gather for our regular Sunday services at 10:30 AM. Located in Kitchener, we draw people from all over the Waterloo region. Visitors are warmly welcomed. Please follow us on Facebook to be notified of additional updates. 

On October 12, 2014, two fibre art pieces were installed on the chancel wall. Artist Karen Cummings, a member of the congregation, introduced the pieces.

 


In 2001 our congregation voted to become part of the Welcoming Congregation Program. This is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take intentional steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We consider this to be important because of the specifically religious prejudices that have made LGBTQ people unwelcome in so many houses of worship. Please see Rev. Jessica P. Rodela’s powerful sermon on LGBTQ bullying, “When Rainbows Fade.”
