Unitarian Universalist Ministers of Canada
The Canadian chapter of the
Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association
The confluence lectures were conceived during discussions of the Moose Creek Group in a small cabin off in the deep woods west of Ottawa. It was a meeting without an agenda, filled with walks, sitting on an old castaway couch in the middle of the woods, and vacuuming up a host of wasps which invaded our meeting space. The kitchen was too small for us all to fit, yet we all took part in making the meals. From Halifax to just west of Ottawa we gathered to see what could happen, where would we find the fertile ground, what could be born.
So the idea of the Confluence Lecture was born and brought to the next gathering of the Unitarian Universalist Ministers of Canada. The idea now has a life of its own. It has been blessed by us all and has been sent on its way.
A deep thank you goes to each minister who labours over this work so that we might be nourished each year with a challenge to our spirit as a group and our spirits as individuals.
