June 16 – Flower Communion, Rev. Karen Fraser Gitlitz & Peter Slade
Bring a flower to the flower communion and take home a different one. In between, we will admire the beautiful bouquet that is created when all our flowers are joined together. Yup, it’s a metaphor!
This is an intergenerational service, with children joining us at the beginning and the end for the flower communion. While they do their own thing, we’ll remember the Čapeks, the originator (Norbert) and promoter (Maja) of this distinctly Unitarian ritual and the values and ideals they promoted.
Please bring a flower to the service.
2nd Hour – Choose between coffee hour and Pride bicycle decoration – Our theme for our participation in this year’s pride parade is “Pride on wheels.” Make decorations for your own or another’s bike, trike or other wheeled conveyance! Sponsored by the Children’s Program

Our summer services, tend to be smaller, more conversational and a great opportunity to get to know others in a relaxed environment. There is no dedicated children or youth programming in July & Aug.
July 7 – Come and Sing, with Kathryn Green
July 14 – Story Circle, with storyteller – Chris Lindgren
Take a look at any art discipline these days, and it seems that many artists are identifying as “storytellers”. The practice of storytelling is either hugely important, or else the word itself has lost meaning. At the same time, look at how people use the word “myth”: it is either a story of great cultural significance or it is an untruth that needs to be constantly dispelled. Knowing this, where do we begin if we yearn to tell and listen to stories? In this service we will explore stories and the art of storytelling together in a welcoming circle.
July 21 – The Courage to Be Disliked – Sage & Glen Baxter
Do you want to determine the direction of your own life, free from the shackles of past traumas and the expectations of others? In their book, Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga discuss the theories of Alfred Adler through a series of dialogues between a philosopher and his young student. Come join Sage and Glen Baxter as we role play and discuss key passages from this life-changing book.
July 28 – Writing as a Spiritual Practice – Kathie Cram
Aug 4 – NO Service
Aug 11 – Fun at the Farm of Ken & Pat Crush
Come to rural Saskatchewan, to the farm/ranch, walk our trails, or take a horse drawn wagon ride, listen to the birds, sit around a bonfire roasting hotdogs/marshmallows, walk in the tall grass (we will tick you off before you leave), come for moments of spiritual reflection, all ages, come! For directions to Pat & Ken’s farm, email the office or Ken.
