Comox Valley Unitarians celebrate 50 years

This Sunday, the Comox Valley Unitarians will celebrate their 50th anniversary in this community.

All are welcome to celebrate and look towards the future of such an unconventional spiritual community.

How has a spiritual community that has no creed or set of beliefs, welcomes people of different beliefs, and encourages members and visitors to find their own spiritual truth, persevered?

The service at 4 p.m. will explore these questions, looking at the history of such a group which had its roots in the 1960s.

If there’s one aspect of Unitarians that has been consistent, it is the idea that it is more important how we live our lives, especially in these times, than what our beliefs are. The service will be celebratory but challenging when one thinks about the idea that spirituality represents a ‘radical ethical life.’

The regular service will occur at 4 p.m. and from 2:30 to 3:30, people are invited to a display of photos and news clippings that show the 50-year story of the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship. Members and friends, places of worship, picnics and camps, denominational activities will be pictured.

Discussion from elders will enrich the history. Light refreshments will be served. A non–perishable donation to the food bank will be welcomed.

All are welcome to attend these activities at 250 Beach Ave. (Comox United Church) and after the service, enjoy a potluck dinner. For the service, there is both free childcare and programs for children and youth.

For more information, call 250-890-9262 or visit the Unitarian website at www.cvuf.ca.
