International Women’s Day (March 8) draws attention to women’s issues and achievements.
The 2016 theme asks everyone to “Pledge for Parity”.
On Sunday, March 13, the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship service will honour gifted women who provide spiritual leadership.
The focus of the March 13 alternative service is on women’s contributions to the spiritual aspect of life.
It is an invitation to share an example of how a woman inspired you to be more “spiritually literate”.
How have women (family, writers, musicians, goddesses, activists, and Mother Earth herself) been spiritual mentors in your spiritual development?
The format is simple and based upon the Quaker tradition: as you are ready to share a spiritual practice or ritual you have learned from a woman, you may do so. The service is 4–5 p.m. at the Comox United Church on Beach Street.
Betty Donaldson is service leader, assisted by Jane Fox, Joanna Finch and Bev Sparks. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
