Speaker: Rev. Meg Roberts

Rev. Meg Roberts will be starting her seventh year as quarter-time consulting minister with the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship. She lives here in Vancouver, is a member of this congregation, and also does a community ministry using the arts in spiritual exploration.

‘You Want Me to Feel Curious and Compassionate About Them?!’

‘You Want Me to Feel Curious and Compassionate About Them?!’

One aspect of the “Loving Kindness” meditation is to cultivate compassion for a difficult person. That’s not always easy. I find becoming curious helps me access compassion in a way that has integrity. Come find out how.

Rev. Meg Roberts will be starting her eighth year as part-time consulting minister with the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship. This fall, Meg starts a 1/2-time consulting ministry with the Beacon Unitarian Church as well. She lives here in Vancouver, is a member of this congregation, and also does a community ministry using creativity and the arts in spiritual exploration and community and social transformation.

Am I Welcome Here, Just as I Am?

Canadian Unitarians and Universalists strive to be radically inclusive of people with various social identities. Please join me to reflect on our own social identities and consider the challenges we face to be truly welcoming of others who are similar and different than we are.

What a Questioning Theist Learned from Atheism

I will share some of my reflections about how my life journey has taken me from growing up a liberal Christian to someone who believed in Spirit, to then doubt to the point of atheism, and now land where I am today.

Whatever sources of inspiration you draw from, I hope my story invites you to reflect on your journey.
