Women and Wisdom: International Women’s Day

The ages-long experience of the Great Mother is the foundation of cultures all over the world: she was nature, she was the earth and she was the unseen dimension of soul or spirit. In the Hebrew Scriptures, wisdom is portrayed as a woman and as the tree of life, representing all women—discerning what goes on in day to day life and as wisdom-carriers of all humanity.  Join us for this celebration of International Women’s Day and our journey with wisdom.

Mother’s Day and Flower Communion

The Flower Communion is a central rite for Unitarians around the world. At UCV it coincides with Mother’s Day, celebrating how our individual contributions to mentoring/parenting/mothering enable our children and young people to grow up and flourish as adults.
Please bring some flowers to share! (We’ll also hear something about the phenomenon of emotional/interpretive labour.)
Helen Hansen vocals and Michael Creber piano and the Chalice Choir sings.
