The Good Books: Celebrating Our Congregation’s Library
Rev. Jess, Lynda MacLeod, Maca Suazo, Peggy Hagen

Albert Einstein said: “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.” Today we celebrate the tenth anniversary of GRU’s library.
Join us downstairs for a Youth SOUPer fundraiser lunch followed by our Annual General Meeting.

March is Social Justice Month at GRU

March 3, 2019. “A Woman's Place.” 
Janis Collins and The Spirit of Life Choir directed by Rich Hrytzak.  
A Unitarian Universalist service about women's rights seems, at first glance, an exercise in "preaching to the choir." But, is there something left for us to learn? Is there a call to action we can answer? What is the place of women in Unitarian Universalism, Canada, and the world? With the help of Rich Hrytzak and the Spirit of Life Choir (who will do some preaching to us!), let's consider these questions and our responsibility to act.

March 10, 2019.   “The Workings of the Working Centre.” 
Today our Social Action Committee will host Joe Mancini of The Working Centre, followed by a Take 40 session where you can ask questions and learn more about making a difference.  *Don’t forget to reset your clocks for Daylight Savings Time this morning!*

March 17, 2019.   “Discovery Sunday:  To Save or Savour?” 
Rev. J. P. Rodela.
Today’s interactive service invites you to examine your commitments and explore your passion.   After the service, visit volunteers and activists at our Social Justice Fair for information and conversations about how to take action within our community and beyond.  

March 24, 2019.   “Water Justice in Water-Rich Ontario.” 
Rev. Jess with Rob Case
and special music by Jay Moore.  The Canadian Unitarian Council has issued a Call to Action to join other Unitarian Universalists to start ripples of change by becoming water activists.   Today’s guest will speak about what communities in SW Ontario are doing to challenge destructive development processes, extractive industry, and other threats to water justice in the context of climate change.  Rob will convene a  Q & A after the service. 

The Wellington Water Watchers is a non-profit, non-governmental citizens' group based in Guelph  that facilitates local grassroots advocacy on water issues of all kinds. Robert Case is the Chair of the Wellington Water Watchers, and an Associate Professor in Social Development Studies, at Renison University College, Waterloo.

March 31, 2019.   “A Mile in Moccasins.” 
Rev. J. P. Rodela
Last year I visited a collaborative art exhibit commemorating the 1200+ missing and murdered Indigenous women.  The challenge of “Walking with Our Sisters” reminds us of the commitment to engage in the ongoing process of Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation.
