Canadian Unitarian Events

Connect and Deepen – Virtual Gathering, Monthly – January 12 & February 9 (2nd Sunday of the month), 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. ET

Join us for the opportunity to discuss matters of spiritual and theological significance in small groups and connect with people across the country.

What’s In a Name, February 22, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET , Online

A recent discussion on the CUC Leaders list focused on the language we use to describe our Unitarian Universalist communities.  A summary of the conversation was compiled and distributed.  This Roundtable is an opportunity for us to consider the summary, to review some additional materials and then to share our questions about when renaming would be appropriate and to then learn a bit about what the renaming process might entail.  Registration deadline: February 13.
