Feb 23 – Stoicism for our Times, Speaker: Ann Coxworth; Service Leader: Jan Norris

Ann Coxworth

In popular usage the Stoics have been given a bad rap, often being portrayed as unfeeling, cold-hearted, stiff-upper-lip kind of people. William B. Irvine in his book “A Guide to the Good Life (the ancient art of stoic joy)” shows how this classic philosophy can in fact form the basis for a calm and fulfilling life in the 21st century. Maybe this could work for some of us.

Second Hour: You’ve heard about a philosophical framework that has been helpful to Ann… What about you? What are the approaches to the big questions that have been useful to you in your life? Join us for a lively conversation.

Borderlands, the places where ecological and cultural systems overlap, are often places of intense diversity and fertility as well as being places of conflict and chaos. What if we looked at our changing times and changing climate as its own form of borderland — a borderland in time as well as space. What tools might we find useful?

*This is the fourth in a series of services focussed on interdependence. Watch for us on Facebook live this morning.

 

Second Hour: Finger food potluck (Saskatoon Unitarians orientation lunch in main floor meeting room)

 

Mar 8 – The Most Dangerous Woman in America, Speaker: Janice Braden; Service Leader: Heather Musgrove

Mary Harris Jones

By the time she was 34, she had survived the Irish potato famines, a yellow fever epidemic and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. She went on to become one of the most famous and dedicated union organizers of history…. She’ll Be Comin’ Round The Mountain was written for her. When she was arrested, 50,000 letters of support called for her release. This Sunday, Janice Braden will be telling the story of the life of this woman whose story has profoundly touched and inspired her.

Second Hour: Discover the joy and sense of connection that comes from singing and dancing with others. Wayne will teach us some simple, multicultural chants honouring the Divine Feminine, accompanied by meditative circle dances. No special singing or dancing skills required–just an open heart and willingness to learn.

The last time she put focussed time into diversity studies was over a decade ago, and both theory and practiced have transformed considerably!
