Sorting Through our Ancestral Baggage

Rev. Melora Lynngood with Worship Associate Shelley Motz —

This month, we’ve been considering our ancestry, and holding up the people and traditions we wish to honour.  What happens when we find parts of our heritage that we don’t necessarily want to pass on as part of our own legacy?

Generations in the Making

Rev. Shana Lynngood with Worship Associate Samantha Magnus —

We rarely stop to think about the fact that our very existence and particular life circumstances were set in motion by a line of ancestors. The life we live now was made possible by lives that went before us. What have we inherited from them? How well do we honour their memory? What can we learn from the cultures and traditions that place a high value on honouring our ancestors?

Rituals and Peace

Presenters: Kjerstin Mackie, Anne Vaasjo, Oceanna Hall with Worship Associate Liz Graham —

Your Lay Chaplains are presenting a two-fold service. They will discuss their work in offering rites of passage to the greater community and how it affects their lives. They will also lead us in co-creating a short participatory ritual of rededication for our congregation’s Peace Pole immediately after the service. Those who are interested in participating are invited to bring something meaningful: a tablespoon of earth, water from a special source, a special flower or a stone.

Honouring Our Ancestors

Rev. Melora Lynngood & Co. with Worship Associate Anna Isaacs —

Some people celebrate All Souls Day and the Day of the Dead around this time of year. Join us for this special Unitarian Universalist service in which we honour our own ancestors – our genetic ancestors as well as our ‘spiritual ancestors;’ the people whose legacy we choose to carry within us. All ages welcome at this service. Child-minding available for those who prefer more room to wiggle and play.

Please bring photos and/or mementos of your ancestors to set alongside our chalice and candles of remembrance.

Better Together

Rev. Shana Lynngood with Worship Associate Larry Boldt –

Our North American mindset frequently leads us to turn toward individualism. We go it alone all too often.

How different would our world be if instead we were inclined toward seeing our selves and our lives as richer in meaning by finding the ways and places where we connect. What if we go it together?

To view by livestream on your computer or tablet please email the office or phone 250-744-2665.


All are invited to an Intergenerational Walk with Rev. Melora after the service at Todd Inlet.

Healing in the Hard, Hard Times

Christopher Wulff, Ministerial Intern, with Worship Associate Madelaine Clarke –

“Upon the table she lay. We spoke words. We sang songs. We wrapped her and we wept over her. In this place and in this time, we were not alone.”

In the hardest times, we need one another the most and yet we often struggle to know what to do. How do we learn to sit in the space of sorrow and hold another, to offer healing when loss is most profound?

How will we choose to heal the world?
