April 6 Giving a Voice to Trans* People in Saskatchewan
Presenter: Mikayla Schultz

As awareness of the trans* community grows so does the need for us to recognize the many barriers that trans* people face in today's society. Although there still exists a lot of stigma behind identifying outside of the gender binary, trans* people are slowly finding their voice and speaking out about their experiences. Mikayla will share with us an overview of some of those barriers, how, as an oppressed group, the trans* community has addressed them so far; but more importantly, she will show us how we, as allies, can help to expand the voice of trans* people in Saskatchewan.
Children's Program: Sara - FIESTA!!!!
April 13 Welcoming Spring - An Intergenerational Service
Presenter: Jane Knox

April 20 Unitarians look at Easter
Presenter: Joanne Green

Unitarians and traditional Christian beliefs about Easter are sometimes an uncomfortable combination in today's Unitarian congregations. We're never sure how to celebrate, or if we should celebrate. Over the past 180 years Unitarian Universalists have grown from a primarily Christian belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ to the variety of beliefs we have today. Join us as we explore the history of Unitarians and Easter, with excerpts from a talk by Rev. Phillip Hewitt of Vancouver.
Children's Program: Shannon - Easter Origins (Pagan and Christian)
April 27 Tolerance & Relativism
Presenter: Eldon Soifer

Tolerance is an odd virtue, because you can really tolerate only things you don't like or don't approve of. Nevertheless, people often think it's very important to tolerate others' beliefs. Sometimes the claim that we should tolerate others is grounded in the observation that, in the past, people who were confident that they knew the truth about things such as ethics and religion, ended up doing a lot of terrible things. It is suggested that we should take a more modest approach to our beliefs, and this is often taken to mean that we should accept that our beliefs are no better or worse than anybody else's, they're just the ones we happen to have. On this view, there are no objective truths about morals, only relative ones. Yet it turns out that such "relativism" is a philosophical view that stands in need of defense just as much as any other--and there are important reasons for thinking that it might not be right. Furthermore, relativism in any case might not be able to provide the justification for tolerance that drew many people to it in the first place.
Children's Program: Sara - Session 14: Love surrounds Us in Nature

The Regina Unitarian Fellowship affirms and promotes the following principles:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.
The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence or which we are a part.
The living tradition we share draws from many sources:
Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life
Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.
Widsom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.
Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbours as ourselves.
Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the findings of reason and results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Our Fellowship

Welcoming Congregation

The Unitarian Fellowship of Regina is a caring community promoting spiritual, intellectual, and ethical growth for all. Our Sunday Services bring together people who share an interest in liberal religion to hear presentation on moral issues, ethics, spirituality, religion, social questions and humanism. Lively discussions are encouraged and often carry over into coffee time. Our Sunday program for children teaches aspects of many religions and cultural traditions through stories, as well as providing interesting crafts, music and other activities children enjoy. Intergenerational services are held about four times per year.
