We are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

Next UUG Gathering
Sunday, 19 June, 2016, 5:30pm (17h30)
@ The Quaker House, 13 Ave. du Mervelet, 1209 Petit Saconnex
Theme: "While Jogging Through Life I Found Myself Running from Fear"
Presenter: Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed, UU Association (Boston) Ambassador to European UU fellowships.
"Shawanaga Road is a sandy lane that winds its way down to Georgian Bay. Over the years this road has taught me many things. Because I might always find a black bear around the next bend, and have, I have had to struggling with fear. Given the bombings in Orlando, Paris, Brussels, Lahore and elsewhere it seems fear is something each of us is going to need to learn to live with while not letting it control our lives."
Mark Morrison-Reed is well-known to many at UUG. As the UUA Ambassador to 5 fellowships in Europe he visits annually. Previously he served for 26 years as co-minister with his wife, Donna, in Rochester, New York, and Toronto and is a former president of the Canadian Unitarian Council. Currently he is an affiliated faculty member at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago and coordinator of its Sankofa Archive - a collection of materials about the people of color who were Unitarian Universalist. As a historian of the African-American presence in UUism, he is author/editor of nine meditation manuals, curricula and books. A new book, entitled Ménage á Trois: The UUA, GAUFCC and IARF and the Birth of the ICUU, will be released this summer. In it he also tells the history of the EUU which, in 1995, was a founding member of International Council of Unitarians and Universalist (ICUU).
Enjoy the social hour after the gathering on Sunday, sharing potluck apèros and beverages of choice!
