Non-Traditional Multi-Faith Services
Are your spiritual needs being met by your current religious practices? Do you question the relevance of certain religious observances when expressing your faith? Are you feeling “dogged by dogma,” even though you know some ancient traditions survive because they tap universal truths still relevant today?
If you and your family are interested in a path that features sincere, non-judgmental dialogue addressing spiritual life in the modern age, you need look no farther – Universal Oneness United Faith Canada will be offering non-traditional multi-faith services on Fridays weekly online and at other regularly scheduled events/online and in-person gatherings.
These services will include participation by the congregation and provide a forum for you to make a meaningful spiritual connection in a supportive setting that promotes tolerance and understanding.
Services will draw from various ancient and modern spiritual scriptures and involve the congregation. This will be enhanced with spirit-based music.
Do explore with us the interfaith path to spiritual living. It may be just what you need to revitalize and put a fresh spark in your heart. We embrace people of all faiths, and even those of no faith, certain that this journey will create more light in our world.
As in any congregation, we need and welcome volunteers. For more information or to volunteer, contact Rev. Alex at email@example.com.

THE GRIEF JOURNEY—IN TWO WORKSHOPS.
Two workshops will discuss this painful journey, which often has no time limit, the seasons/realizations, and coping mechanisms. This is not a restructuring of our former Grief Support Group. However, we may launch this for interested participants and meet remotely.
The first week will deal with Phases 1 and 2: Grief, numbness, shock, and yearning. The second week will examine confrontation, adjustment/re-organization, and re-entry.
