Glebe faith communities gather to support Anna Maranta following hate crime

The Ottawa Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) has invited all faith communities represented in the Glebe and environs to come together and show support for Anna Maranta.

Anna Maranta, who leads the Glebe Minyan faith community and lives in the Glebe, woke up on November 15 to find a swastika and a racial slur spray painted on the door of her house. We feel that we cannot let such acts pass unchallenged. We feel the need to respond as a neighbourhood against hate crime and for safety, for community and reaching out across difference. We hope that this neighbourhood action will begin to give us a direction forward to understand these events in our city.

We will meet from 3:00- 4:30 pm on Saturday November 26, at the Quaker Meetinghouse at 91A Fourth Avenue. Anna Maranta will speak about her experience, and brief contributions from the neighbourhood faith communities represented will be heard. Refreshments and informal discussions will follow.

All members of the Glebe neighbourhood and wider community are welcome. Please note that seating is limited.  RSVP by contacting Manuela Popovici, Resident Friend, at residentfriendottawa@gmail.com or 613 232 9923.

January Schedule

New Year's Day is on a Sunday this year, which throws off our usual schedule.  Meeting for Worship will occur every Sunday, as usual, however:

  • potluck is moved to the 2nd Sunday (the 8th), with a session on poetry and prayer to follow
  • Meeting for Worship for Business is moved to the 3rd Sunday (the 15th)

We'll be back to the usual schedule (potluck on the 1st Sunday, MfWfB on the 2nd Sunday) in February.

Meeting Warm Ups

·        Sunday "Meeting Warm-Ups," 9:00am until 10:00, Sundays at OMM, but irregular during the summer.  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 current plan is:

  • First Sunday of the month - Singing with our Burundian Friends
  • Remaining Sundays of the month - Discussions about sections of our Canadian Faith and Practice

Everyone is welcome.

Check back frequently--we'll try to keep this list up-to-date.  If you have ideas or feedback, contact the Adult Religious Education Committee.

 

Refugee Committee Update

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.
