The Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga (UCM) is a religious community of individuals who are guided by compassion, reason and love on an individual search for truth and meaning.
We are a growing and diverse congregation. We find meaning and value in the rich and deep history of Unitarianism because our religious tradition draws inspiration from many sources including the wisdom of the world's faith traditions, nature, science, and contemporary thought.
The diversity of our religious beliefs resonates with the multicultural community in which we are located. UCM serves Peel (Brampton, Mississauga), Halton (Oakville, Burlington and Milton) and Etobicoke.
Tickets available by calling the church office at 905-278-5622 (weekdays between 10 am and 3 pm), from choir members or at the door
Art in the Hall - Mari Adams
For Mari art has been a lifetime passion, first as a classically trained pianist and violist, and later in the visual arts. She has worked in sculpting, weaving, quilting, needlework, and photography, in New Zealand, USA and Canada, and has been selected for juried shows. Her painting/drawing/arts background in Canada includes studies at Sheridan, Springbank Centre for the Arts, Visual Arts, Mississauga, Oakville Art Society, the Spillane Studio of Fine Arts, Port Credit; Haliburton's Fleming School of the Arts, and Sunbury Shores Arts Centre in St. Andrews, NB. She works in pastel, watercolour, pen and ink, acrylic, and multi-media, depending on the subject matter. She prefers a realistic approach to portraiture, and especially loves the vibrancy of coloured pencil for laying down up to 70 layers of finely graded tones to capture the beauty and essence of the human face.
ABOUT the ART
All materials used are archival: acid-free papers, preservation mats and backings, low reflection and UV protected museum glass in most cases, and high quality and complementary framing. Media is likewise of the highest standards: UV rated and acid-free.
Most originals are available via high quality GICLE copies. This reproduction technology is the most precise replication possible for fine art and not discernibly different from the original. You may then mat or frame the pieces to your specifications.
We, the member congregations of the Canadian Unitarian Council, covenant to affirm and promote:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations;
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Sunday November 30, 2014 - Invincible Kindness
The Dalai Lama says his true religion is kindness. He is not the only one; kindness is encouraged by people as varied as Kurt Vonnegut to Mr. Rogers to Amelia Earhart. Today we’ll explore the value of being kind.
