A Deeper Dive into 6 questions of our time

Date: February 11, 2024

Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship is participating in a ground-breaking collaboration with 16 other Unitarian Universalist congregations across Canada.

Called “Meaning Making in Liminal Times,” this project invites Canadian Unitarian Universalists to reflect on six questions for our time, one each during the months of October, November, January, February, March, and April.

Each month, participating congregations will receive a service crafted by a Canadian UU minister (or two). Then on the third or fourth Saturday of the month, there will be an opportunity to join that month’s preacher for a deeper dive into the topic.
The October service was: Can we give what we get?
With Rev. Debra Faulk and Rev. Danielle Webber
The November service was: In this polarized world . . . can we just talk?
With Rev. Brian Kiely
The January 14 service was: To be or not to be and Chat GPT: How is AI shaping our understanding of what it means to be human?
Deeper dive Saturday, January 20: The art of ethical relationships
With Rev. Karen Fraser Gitlitz

The February 11 services was: What Sustains and Inspires Us in this Climate Emergency?
Speaker: Rev. Meg Roberts
Description: In this time, we are facing multiple climate crises. It can be frightening and
dispiriting. How can our values and practices sustain and inspire us – as individuals and as a
Unitarian community? How can we get from despair to hope?

The March 10 service was:
Topic: In times of great change, what can the wisdom of our bodies offer us?’
Speaker: Arran Morton
Description: Our bodies gain information from and engage with the human and non human
world in ways our conscious mind is often unaware of. Let’s explore how developing a deeper
relationship with our bodies’ wisdom can support us in navigating challenging transitions.

Upcoming and final service – April 14
Topic: Who do we choose to be?
Speaker: Rev. Samaya Oakley
Description: That we live in unprecedented times is a refrain we often hear too often these
days. All the ways of living and being in the world have fallen away. As we begin to make our
way forward into who knows what, how is it that we can love ourselves, our congregations, and
our communities into a new wholeness. What do we want to be remembered for? Who do we
choose to be in these times.
