John Klein, President of the Regina Car Share Co-operative, and a person who bikes year-round in
Regina, speaks on EVs (Electric Vehicles) – How can we switch from gas vehicles and why? Save money! Reduce pollution!

Over the past 9 months our Fellowship has explored what the 8th Principle means, with book discussions, services and written articles. We’re continuing to educate ourselves about racism and barriers to inclusion both as individuals and as a congregation. Today, Joan Carolyn and others reflect on what it means, as a Fellowship, to be anti-racist and inclusive.

Speaker: Karen Dunk-Green

Karen is a long-time member of the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto and currently its President and a Lay Chaplain.  She is also part of a 20-year polyamorous foursome.  In this sermon, she’ll share about her experiences of entering into such a relationship, keeping it a secret, and coming out to others.

Speaker:  Denise Davy
Ms. Davy met Margaret while on assignment one cold winter night. Margaret was a sweet-
natured young girl who played the accordion and had dreams of becoming a teacher until
she had a psychotic break in her teens, which sent her down a much darker path. Homelessness is a huge crisis in communities across North America. Denise’s talk is aimed at dispelling some of the myths around who the homeless are, and talking about what we, as Unitarians, can do to help solve the problem

 

Speaker: Donovan Hayden

Donovan’s talk discusses how Unitarians can remain committed to anti-racist work and put the 8th principle into action. He speaks with honesty and insight about his experience as an activist for racial justice. Donovan recently completed a MA in Theatre and Performance Studies at York University. In Canada, he continues to raise his voice as a young adult Black Unitarian and has continued to be involved with a number of Black and Indigenous protests since returning to Toronto.  Donovan brings a fresh perspective which attracts other young adults.

Speaker: Jamie Struthers

 Jamie examines our relationships with others and those we consider to be “others” with reference to the story of Peter and Cornelius in Acts 10.  What does “radical hospitality” mean to each of us and to us as a community and urge that we all periodically ‘have a look in the mirror’.

Speaker: Liz James

We’re taught about the power of follow through and discipline from an early age… But that doesn’t mean never giving up.  How do you know when it’s time to let something go?  And once you’ve decided… How do you let it go?

Speaker: Rabbi Jeremy Parnes 

Rabbi Jeremy Parnes, who is the rabbi at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Regina, speaks on peace. Is peace, as it is discussed today, a good thing?

Is it in fact productive or does it achieve the opposite effect?

Is there a better process?

Speaker: Francine Proulx-Kenzle

We are celebrating Pride Month and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. The Fellowship’s vision is to be more inclusive. What does that mean?  Listen as Francine Proulx-Kenzle joins us in open conversation about building inclusive environments. Pflag Regina will help us explore what it takes, what behaviours we might use to be truly welcoming. Curious about Pflag Regina? Check out their new bilingual website!

 

Speaker: Jockie Loomer-Kruger

Jockie Loomer-Kruger and her husband, the late Herb Kruger, were involved-friends of the Unitarian Fellowship of Regina when they lived some of their retirement years here, from 1995 – 2002. Now, Jockie is back in her home province of Nova Scotia, and at 85, has just had her debut novel, Until the Day We Die, published. Drawing on the Krugers’ own long affiliation with Unitarianism, Humanism, Agnosticism and Atheism, Jockie shares excerpts from the novel which highlight these religious views—or absence thereof—in fictional form.

Jockie's website is www.jockie.ca
