Easter 2015 Sunrise Service
present: UKUTHULA (oo-koo-too-la). From the Zulu word for peace, UKUTHULA
will reflect on the effects of fear in society – as commented on by members
of Halifax’s queer community – and call on the public to keep working
towards a more inclusive, peaceful society. The event will feature a wide
range of music, from South African protest songs to arrangements of Joni
Mitchell and Kate Bush, to complement the words of the speakers and explore
past and present struggles for equality. UKUTHULA will sensitively connect
the efforts of various pro-equality movements, weaving together individual
struggles, to create a stronger, more unified society. This event is not to
be missed!SPEAKERS: Yvonne Diggs, Krista Lane, Hugo Dann, Scott Jones

A family that prays together derives strength, solace, and inspiration from that act of worship. A prayer group will gather in the minister’s study at 10 a.m each Sunday. All are welcome to join in this special time of fellowship. If you have any requests for prayers, please pass them along to Rev. Stright or Valerie Macdonald.
The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle website.
