World peace must develop from inner peace.   Peace is not just mere absence
of violence.  Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.

The Right Stuff

Speaker
: Lynn Harrison

Unitarian minister Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “Character is higher than intellect,” and in January, “character” is our theme for reflection.  What is “the right stuff” within that leads to ethical and courageous living?  Emerson offers us some clues in his famous “Divinity School Address” which is required reading for all UU candidates for ministry. On January 4th we’ll consider what character means today.  


Lynn Harrison is a Candidate for Unitarian Universalist ministry.  She was the Intern Minister at First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto in 2013-14 and will complete her Master of Divinity studies at Emmanuel College (University of Toronto) in 2015.

The Last Laugh

Speaker
: Curtis Murphy

On occasion, someone will comment that something we do or say is “out of character.” What does that mean? What does it mean to be “in character?” How can we be playful even as we search for authenticity? 


Curtis Murphy grew up UU at the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa, and most recently lived in Montreal, where he attended seminary at the Montreal School of Theology. He is currently serving as intern minister at the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto.
