Sunday, September 16 - Ancestral Surprises: What's In Your Closet?

Sunday, September 16 at 11:00 a.m. — ANCESTRAL SURPRISES: WHAT'S IN YOUR CLOSET?  I've sometimes quipped that ancestor reverence is my real religion and, like many others, I've spent considerable time and effort seeking to discover what I could about my ancestors, whether genetic, social or spiritual. Genealogy is one of society's favourite pastimes and, when pursued carefully and honestly, it can reveal as much about us as it does about our forebears. Sometimes we stumble upon surprises, which, when fully considered, might lead us to look at ourselves and the world in new ways.

Arborg Unitarian Church is located at the corner of Ingolf Street and River Road. Dress is informal and all are welcome. Light refreshments are served following the service.

Sunday, September 2 - Priceless: What Money Can't Buy

Sunday, September 2 at 11:00 a.m.  PRICELESS: WHAT MONEY CAN'T BUY – It was the apostle Paul who wrote that “the love of money is the root of all evil” and, over the course of two millennia, age after age has supplied evidence to support his assertion, although I personally think it’s actually second to the love of power. But money can’t buy you love, as The Beatles sang, and notwithstanding the present idolatries of the market economy, money can’t buy us most of what we treasure in life.  Rev. Stefan Jonasson

Gimli Unitarian Church is located on Second Avenue, just north of Centre Street. Dress is "summer season casual" and light refreshments are served following the service.
