World events e-discussion for Canadian UUs

November 14th, 2016 . by William Baylis

The CUC’s April Hope announced another teleconference at 3 PM on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, for Canadian UUs wanting some reasoned community time after the world events of last week. She wrote:

“If you are still feeling the impact of recent world events, gather with other Canadian UU’s for reflection and support. After the US election results this week, we gathered as a community online, to share and listen to one another’s feelings and concerns. People appreciated this and have asked for another time to come together. CUC staff will once again provide questions and readings to facilitate this time of reflection.
“We will gather, next Wednesday, November 16 at 3pm Eastern, please see Zoom link below.  You do not need to have been on the previous call to join in this time. Please share widely.
“We share common principles, may they help ground us during this time of change.

Petition to release UU Minister in Burundi

November 20th, 2015 . by William Baylis

The Unitarian Church of Burundi has been targeted by violent forces and its minister has been arrested and detained by the police. We believe he is being persecuted because of his Unitarian faith and the good work he and his congregation have done for their surrounding community. Please join this petition to demand Rev. Fulgence’s immediate release.

Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana is a member-at-large of the Executive Committee of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists. Here’s a link to the petition.

Update on Nov. 27, 2015, from the ICUU: Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana has been released from custody and is currently in another country. The charges against him are still under investigation.

Update on May 21, 2015, from the CUC AGM in Vancouver. Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana has just become a landed immigrant in Canada. He managed to get out of Burundi with his passport, even though the government there had tried to seize his passport. He is at the conference here and is in the process of getting his ministerial status recognized. He plans to join the congregation in Saskatoon. In his talk about the UU-UNO (Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office) and  the ICUU (International Council of Unitarians and Universalists), he described the Hutu government’s violence against many in the Tutsi minority including some members of the Unitarian church there. Here is a photo of Rev. Fulgence, as he is called here, with Bobbye and Bill Baylis, taken this evening.
