Led by: Anton Pickard of the Huronia Unitarian Fellowship
“The more freedom we enjoy, the greater the responsibility we bear, toward others as well as ourselves.”
This month’s meeting we will explore the topic of “freedom and responsibility”. What it means and the role it plays in our lives.
For this meeting, kindly bring a short quote or reading that speaks to you about either “freedom” or “responsibility” or both, you will be invited to share this if you are comfortable doing so.
“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility,
and most people are frightened of responsibility.”

Freedom & Responsibility
Knowing the Dark led by Luci Dilkus
with guest speaker Ewa Bednarczuk
Ewa Bednarczuk is an ecologist at Lower Trent Conservation - the conservation authority caring for lands and waters along the Trent River on its journey from Rice Lake to the Bay of Quinte.
Ewa studied at the University of Guelph where she completed her Masters of Science degree in biological science.
At Lower Trent Conservation, Ewa provides guidance on natural heritage protection and stewardship projects. She also delivers engaging environmental outreach programs.
Prior to her current position, Ewa worked on conservation projects across Ontario and abroad like monitoring flying squirrels reintroduced to Point Pelee National Park, and managing a population of endangered parrots on Mauritius in the Indian Ocean (home of the extinct Dodo bird).
Some of her current favourite projects include the wildly popular Native Plant Sale, the Lower Trent Adventure audio-tour and connecting in the virtual dimension with people who love nature.

We are Canadian Unitarians
As Canadian Unitarian Universalists, we envision a world in which our interdependence calls us to love and justice.
Unitarian-Universalism honours both the social justice needs of the wider community, and also the integrity of the individual conscience. We look forward to hearing your individual ideas and aspirations and look forward to meeting you soon to form a supportive community of free-thinking individuals.
We are a lay led group. A typical service includes opening words, a chalice lighting, an opportunity to share joys and concerns, music, a period of silence, an informative and inspirational presentation given by one of our members and friends followed by open discussion. There's more music and closing words.
Light refreshments are available and lively discussion continues on an informal basis.
Come to watch and listen or to participate actively. You are more than welcome.
