As the story is told, each Easter morning, the stone has been rolled away from the tomb. Each of the Gospels have a different story about how that happened, and yet there is significance to the fact that it did. This service will reflect on what this means for us as Unitarian Universalists.
Speaker: Rev. Samaya Oakley
Rev. Samaya Oakley has been the Minister of the South Fraser Unitarians since August 2016. She received her Masters of Divinity from the Vancouver School of Theology and has worked with Unitarian Universalist communities at the local, national and continental levels for the past twenty years.

As many faith traditions begin to examine who they are in a constantly changing world, many are turning to the practice of Buddhism to see their way through. This service reflects on who the Buddha was, is, and can be for us as Unitarian Universalists.
In this congregation we come together to be nourished, energized, and warmed by the spark that lives between us. How do we tend to that spark knowing that we each come broken and perfectly whole? Join us for a service that illuminates who we are and what we do.

This service explores how we can find meaning and purpose with an open heart working for love and justice in the world.

For thousands of years people have gathered on the eve of the winter solstice to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Today we gather to be nurtured and held during the longest night and begin to look forward to the light returning. From out of the darkness and cold, light and hope return. Join us as we slow down, sit in silence together and rest when the wheel turns. We’ll gather to walk the labyrinth and join in ritual to honour the gifts of the night and to celebrate the return of the light.
We welcome everyone to our service. This year we will be holding the event at Sanford Hall, Kwomais Point Regional Park, 1367 – 128 Street, South Surrey (near Ocean Park Shopping Center). We’ll start the labyrinth walk at 4pm. The annual Solstice Ritual led by Rev. Samaya will begin at 5pm.
