Thank GOD it's Thursday!

Every Thursday in Rooms A & B

A series of informative, interesting and engaging discussions on a variety of complex and dynamic issues that affect us on a daily basis. Come for information, education, fellowship and FUN!

Thursday February 1: World Cafe - Medical Assistance in Dying

You are invited to a World Café where you’ll have the opportunity to discuss the highly controversial topic of medical assisted death. What happens when there are no clinicians in small communities to provide the service? Hear information from the government of Canada, the views of the United Church of Canada, and consider a case close to home. Then consider your own views after you reflect upon your faith. Is it right to take control of our time of death? Is it right to ask a doctor or nurse practitioner to give us the fatal needle since they have taken a vow not to harm others? Is it right to let people suffer a long-term illness when their suffering could
end sooner? How does God and faith fit into this scenario? 

Thursday February 8: Youth Confirmation Session 3 of 4 - JESUS

The first two TGIT Youth Confirmation sessions were held in January. All Youth are invited to join in discussing Jesus at this session.

Lenten Faith in Action: February 14 - March 29

This year the people of Woodlawn United Church are challenged to “Give it up for the Earth!”

“Give it up for Earth!” is a national faith-in-action campaign to increase Canada’s contribution to climate justice. It is focused on the global crisis and offers people opportunity to be part of the solution. We, as a congregation, have this accessible, tangible, and powerful way to respond to this critical issue. During Lent, you are invited to pledge and call our government to action. We can be a sign that Canadians are prepared to make lifestyle changes to reduce our GHG emissions. And, that we want our government to match and exceed these actions with policy changes that will move us further and faster towards international climate change goals. Together we CAN make a difference!
