The only constant in existence is change. Thich Nhat Hahn said: If you suffer, it is not because things are impermanent. It is because you believe things are or should be permanent. We should therefore endeavor to accept and embrace Impermanence. Acceptance of impermanence will lead to the equanimity of our mind and to our inner peace.
The extraordinariness of my daily walk
the adventure begins when I follow
the trail through the woods
to the shoreline
where the water is navy blue or azure or turquoise
or at times slate grey
with no distinction between earth and sky
and on those days I float on the mist
this day while walking
I was so enchanted by the moss
the exuberance of new life
so seduced was I
by the thick lush carpet
beneath my feet
that I did not notice
the old White Pine
her arms stretched out to greet me
my eyes cast down
not seeing her
I clumsily shoved passed
but she did not scold or take offence
instead, appreciating my child-like wonder
she gently brushed my cheek
with a soft-needled hand
and I felt blessed and loved and grateful.

The towering Elm, so like an umbrella in the distance. You are young and not as mighty as your ancestors.
Laid low by one of the first invasive: Dutch they called it. Now there’s Emerald Ash Borer, spruce bud worm and Longhorn beetle.
We settlers got to see you for awhile.
But, you were like a canary in a coal mine and died for our comfort. How long? How long?

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.
