Although Meeting for Business is held on the second Sunday of each month for most of the year, we will do businesson the third Sunday (July 24th) in July and there will be no Meeting for Business in August.
·Sunday Meeting Warm-Ups, 9:00am until 10:15, Sundays at OMM .These warm ups are for our spirits, heart, mind and body, to help build community as expansion of our 2016 “Quake Up” retreat theme.
The following future sessions are planned:
June 26 - Something is planned, but the webminder can't remember the topic. No doubt it will be good.
July 3 - Singing with our Burundian friends
August 7 - Singing with our Burundian friends
Check back frequently--we'll try to keep this list up-to-date. But--1st Sunday only singing during July and August!
We've posted the slides below for the March 20th session “Sunny reflections: solar energy and electric cars: a spiritual and practical peek into the future.” (If you want a clearer version, send us an e-mail at webminder.ottawafriends with a gmail.com extension. This version has been compacted.)
The OMM Refugee Committee is very pleased to have submitted our sponsorship application for our chosen family of 6 to the Canadian Unitarian Council staff. We realize that there are still many steps to be accomplished before we are likely to see them arriving in Ottawa but we count on the government to continue to provide the staffing needed in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon to help expedite the work done by Canadian citizens like ourselves.
We recently explored whether we could accept Interac e-mail money transfers to facilitate donations to either our general or our refugee funds. We can do this, however it is not an automated process so it's best to check first with the treasurer to make sure she's in-town and ready to accept it. (E-mail address is treasurer.ottawafriends with a gmail.com extension.) We believe the steps are:
True Godliness don't turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavours to mend it: not hide their candle under a bushel, but set it upon a table in a candlestick.
