Nov 2 What is Zen?
Presenter: Harriet Vu

Zen is a way of living that is focused on being awake, finding joy, happiness, and enlightenment in the present moment. It is a practice that measures its success by the degree of peace one expects in life.
Children's Program: Special Lesson - All Saints' Day
Nov 9 Imagist Poetry: Fragmentation and the Wish for Wholeness
Presenter: Alex MacDonald

This illustrated talk was read in February of this year as part of the University of Regina lecture series commemorating the centenary of the start of World War I in 1914. The talk begins with the observation made in many histories of the period, that the Great War was a cultural watershed, and that a characteristic feature of this watershed was the fragmentation of old ways of seeing the world. While fragmentation is certainly evident in Imagist poetry of the years from about 1910 to 1918, the other side of the binary is also present -- the wish for wholeness

Children's Program: Special Lesson - Remembrance Day
Nov 16 By their agreements you shall know them
Visiting Minister: Karen Fraser-Gitlitz

What are the principles that support healthy, inclusive communities? What guidelines or ground rules do you follow in your family and your friendships? The bonds of friendship and association provide us with some of the greatest joy and satisfaction in human life . . . and, every now and then, they provide us with some of our trickiest challenges. This morning we will explore some wisdom (aka painfully learned lessons!) from within our own tradition and beyond.
Children's Program: Session #8 - Life Giving Plants
Nov 23 Conflict between Human Rights & Canadian Mining in Guatemala
Presenters: Robbi Humble

Canadian mining companies are leading the field in international mining concessions, and unfortunately, also in human rights complaints in mineral-rich developing countries far away from Canadian eyes. The Indigenous Peoples of Guatemala, their way of life and livelihoods, are particularly threatened and are rising up against these violations of their rights and of their spiritual beliefs in the centrality of life and Mother Earth. How is this happening? What can we, as Canadians, do to take responsibility for our part in these global systems that perpetuate injustice in the name of profits on our behalf?
Children's Program: Session #9 - Creativity is Nature
Nov 30 Famous Unitarians Series: Bruce Hyer Unitarian Universalist & Green Party M.P.
Presenters: Victor Lau

A presentation on Canada's second Green Party Member of Parliament. Bruce's life as a Unitarian Universalist and his timely politics will be explored and discussed.
Children's Program: Session #10 - Joy In Nature (Animal Play)

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.
