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.
·Sunday Meeting Warm-Ups, 9:00am until 10:15, Sundays at OMM (usually downstairs).These warm ups are for our spirits, heart, mind and body, to help build community as expansion of our 2016 “Quake Up” retreat theme. 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 following future sessions are planned:
May 22: No warm-up
May 29: Haiku writing as a spiritual/literatry practice.
June 5: "Make a joyful noise" (singing with our Burundian friends)
June 12: A member will discuss his grandfather's paintings and papers
Check back frequently--we'll try to keep this list up-to-date.
OMM members and attenders have participated in the Great Glebe Garage Sale for years. It's a chance to both raise money for some of our projects and to get to know our neighbours. The GGGS will be May 28th this year. The committee is currently planning to sell plants and food and provide an opportunity to visit our building.
If you'd like to be part of the GGGS team, listen for the announcement after Meeting.
The humble, meek, merciful, just, pious, and devout souls are everywhere of one religion; and when death has taken off the mask they will know one another, though the divers liveries they wear here makes them strangers.
