For centuries, meditative art has been a way of calming the mind and restoring the senses. Spend some time with this ancient practice, making beautiful things out of pattern, gesture and materials and take something home with you. There will be several activities to try, some individual and some cooperative.

 

Second Hour: Finger food potluck

 

Feb 9 – Missing, Murdered, and Locked Away, Panelists: Bev Fullerton (E Fry); Darlene Rose Okemaysim; Service Leader: Erica Bird

Please join us on February 9th as we welcome guests Beverly Fullerton and Darlene Rose Okemaysim-Sicotte who will speak about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit (MMIWG2S), along with the over-incarceration of Indigenous women in the prison system. In 2019 the Elizabeth Fry Society made 105 Faceless Dolls to send to the Canadian Senate. The Faceless Dolls are part of a project initiated by the Native Women’s Association of Canada to raise awareness of the MMIWG2S. We will participate in a workshop in the second hour to make these dolls to raise awareness in our own community.

Second Hour: The Reconciliation team will lead us in the Faceless Dolls activity… and immersive, hands on learning experience.

Chet Neufeld, executive director of the Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan will illustration the potential of native plants to

strengthen our connection with the natural environment.

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.

 

2nd Hour

11:45 AM – 12:45 PM

After tea & coffee join in one of the after-service activities. This time is a great way to get to know people and to explore topics in more depth.
