Fire Communion: Starting a Year off with Integrity
Rev. Danielle Webber & Worship Associate Keith Germaine
Welcoming Board Member – Wayne Broughton
We create rituals in our lives to find meaning, to give balance, and to seek familiarity. As time passes and another year comes and goes, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Resolutions become a symbol of these rituals and a time for new beginnings. Fire Communion helps us to take time to reflect on the year that has passed, and the one that is upon us. How have you let integrity guide you this past year, and how do you intend it to lead you through the new year? As we settle into this new year we will be reflecting on how integrity plays an important role in our personal lives and how we can keep it in focus as we begin a new year.
January 12th: Questioning Integrity
Rev. Danielle Webber & Worship Associate Linda Guebert
Welcoming Board Member – Rob Sebo
How do we hold the multitude of a human being when they have done something that shows their humanity, and implies their lack of integrity. Have you ever wondered about the integrity of a loved idol, a character history suggests we adore, when a nasty truth comes forth. This morning we will be exploring the truth of the simple statement “nobody’s perfect.”
January 19th: What if our First Principle could be The Inherent Worth and Dignity of Every Being?
Worship Associates: Kim Dawson & Keith Germain
Welcoming Board Member – Sheldon Reddekopp
Historically, Universalists were Christians who believed that a loving God would not condemn any person to eternal torment. In 1935, the Universalist Church adopted an avowal of faith in “the supreme worth of every human personality.” The UUA eventually adopted the first principle as we know it today, “The inherent worth and dignity of every person”. But is every person worth the same? Do mass murderers, abusers, or white supremacists have more worth and dignity than you? Do humans have more worth and dignity than other life forms? How might erasing the line between those with and without worth and dignity help us connect with and care for others who are different from ourselves? Please join us in an exploration of our first principle.
January 26th: A Community of Integrity
Rev. Danielle Webber & Worship Associate Rob Sebo
Welcoming Board Member – Linda Easton
What does it mean to be part of a community that holds integrity as one of its highest aspirations? What would Kelowna Unitarians look like if we sought to be a community of integrity? This morning we will be looking at work that we have done this last year, since Joan Carolyn visited to helped us to explore what Ministry at Kelowna Unitarians could look like if we focused on Roots, Wings & Spirit, and what this ministry could hold for our future.
