Unitarian Universalism at home and around the world
In the previous blog we shared a few resources about Unitarian Universalism (click here if you missed it). Here are a few additional resources to explore:
In North America our movement is congregationalist, which means that each congregation is self-governing and self-funding. The best way to start learning about us is to participate: If you haven’t already seen it, our Welcome brochure is a great way to learn more about us and there is a list of ideas for getting involved. Click here to view (printed copies are available in our lobby).
As a self-governing congregation, we belong to our national association of UU congregations, the Canadian Unitarian Council. Click here to find out more about the CUC
Through the Canadian Unitarian Council, we participate in the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists. This group supports the unique development of the UU spirit in each cultural context. One of the ICUU’s most popular program is their global chalice lighting – click here to check out recent contributions. You can also sign up to receive a monthly email with a chalice lighting submitted by one of our international member congregations (an English translation is always available).
Our own community minister, Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana is leading a project to gather up existing francophone UU materials and create new materials, in concert with the efforts of other Canadian UU congregations in Ottawa and Montreal. Read more about it on our website, here. Contact Rev. Fulgence if you’d like to get involved! Fulgence.firstname.lastname@example.org
