Each Sunday we meet together at 10:30 a.m.
Each Sunday we join together as a room full of doubters, dreamers, theists, atheists, non-theists, liberals and conservatives, Buddhists, meditators, mystics, lovers of reason and lovers of life. While our perspectives often differ, we all share the desire to express our gratitude for life and to reconnect with who we most want to be.
Thus “Sunday Service” is a time of expressing thanks, finding peace and listening to our souls. We often hear from one another and from our minister, challenges to live our lives with depth, boldness, passion, generosity and risk.
Services include music, meditation, ritual and sharing. If you are searching for a time of reflection and inspiration, or if you just need a “spiritual jolt,” we’d love to have you join us.
Children are present during the beginning of our Service. After the Children’s Story, they go to their own programs. Visitors are always welcome. Services last for approx 75 minutes. Coffee and light snacks are served afterward, and we hope you will stay and have a chat with our members. Limited parking is available in our lot off Ashdale Avenue directly behind our building. Street parking is available on Hiawatha and Ashdale, as well as on Gerrard Avenue.
10:30 am – noon

From the time we are born it is believed that we arrive from the spirit world with natural gifts that are meant to be used as part of a greater purpose in contributing to our individual and collective roles and responsibilities within the community. We have lost our way by believing work and education alone are the factors that shape us. We need to look deep into ourselves, to find and get to know what those gifts are – in order to effectively use them as part of our life’s purpose and journey in this physical experience as were originally intended to. Lindsay will share her story on her own natural gifts and how she learned to use them toward community building and advocacy. This talk is sure to inspire and awake the natural gifts within all of us.
Speaker: Lindsay Kretschmer (Swooping Hawk) is German, Mohawk – Wolf Clan and her Family comes from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. She is a social justice advocate and the executive director of the Toronto Aboriginal Support Services Council where she works across the city with other ED’s of native serving organizations on policy, research, training and advocacy issues.
