How Sweet Is a Life with Purpose? Very!

How Sweet Is a Life with Purpose? Very!

Stefa Katamay with Worship Associate Samantha Magnus –

Pulpit swap: Rev. Melora Lynngood preaches at Capital Unitarian Universalist Congregation and Capital UU member Stefa Katamay, preaches for us.

The personal and community disruption and losses arising from COVID-19 has led many of us to reflect on what is important. By extension, questions about purpose and meaning arise. 

Although the subject of streams of philosophy, these are questions for all of us to answer for ourselves.

Transition and retirement coach Stefa Katamay will explore some of the pillars of life purpose – our values and what drives and energizes us – and why having a life purpose matters. How can we support one another in our journeys towards purpose and meaning?

—————

After a career mainly in public health nutrition policy Stefa Katamay left the paid work force to pursue nothing in particular. This led to a four-year sailing learning journey which eventually brought Stefa to Victoria.

As a Certified Executive Coach and a Certified Retirement Coach, Stefa writes about “the places we travel within our own emotional, intellectual and spiritual landscapes” and supports people through their journeys of transition.

Living as a Work of Art 

Living as a Work of Art 

 Rev. Shana Lynngood with Worship Associate Lynne Bonner –

Museums are some of Shana’s favourite places on the planet. She says she can spend hours lost in the images of people and places and stories. 

During these Covid times we may find we are having to be creative, even artistic, in how we chart the course of our days which have suddenly become more circumscribed. How have you added colour and texture to your days? 

In the work in progress that is your life what do you most need to observe? Do? Be? What can art teach us about life and vice versa?

Send an email after 9 a.m. Sunday to obtain the entry code. Then join us online at 10:15 a.m. for the Sunday worship service.
