Oct. 6 Rev. Rod ESQ Scary Stuff (RE Downstairs) – The Halloween merchandise is already out, giving us plenty of time to consider the deeper meanings of those things that scare us. And with this space for contemplation, we can also confront our sources of fear, confront them, consider what we can do about them, and maybe even find that they’re not always as scary as they seem. Toni Janik
Oct. 13 Rev. Rod ESQ Recognising the Land – Thanksgiving (Intergenerational) – The land that we live on, and live from, has a rich story to tell. When we listen to it, we have an opportunity to connect with it more fully – to find cause for celebration, respect, and… gratitude.
Baylis-Stone Trio
Oct. 20 Jane Innerd The Early Christian Church (RE downstairs)
– An attempt to understand why the Nicene code was necessary.

Oct. 27 Joe McParland UNO talk – Equity in Action: Gender in an Intersecting World. (RE downstairs) Toni Janik
Nov. 3 Rev. Rod ESQ The Trail of Petals (RE Downstairs) – Last year, we introduced the tradition of honouring our dead in the style of the Mexican Day of the Dead.  This year we continue this tradition by bringing in photos or mementos of our dearly departed.
Toni Janik
Nov. 10 John Upcott Why This Church is Important to You (RE downstairs) Baylis-Stone Trio
Nov. 17 Rev. Rod ESQ Frank Appeal (RE Downstairs) – When Jimmy Wales began Wikipedia, people were skeptical that an open, free encyclopedia would work. Somehow, it panned out – with the work of millions of volunteers…and a little something else. Indian Village Quartet
Nov. 24 Rev. Rod ESQ Eating the Chair (RE downstairs) –Sometimes an all or nothing attitude gets in the way of achieving anything at all. But consistent and persistent discipline can really add up on the way to achieving unbelievable goals… even eating a chair.
Toni Janik
Dec. 1 Rev. Rod ESQ Counting Thoughts (RE downstairs) – The adage that it’s the thought that counts opens up the question how exactly are thoughts valuable… and what do they count for?
Baylis-Stone Trio
