The CUC board is promoting and celebrating our new Vision Statement with a couple of interesting contests.
For details see: http://cuc.ca/vision-and-mission/
A. Interconnected Faith Sermon Contest: Write a new sermon/homily of 1,800 to 2,500 words on any aspect of the Vision Statement and its five attached Aspirations. Deliver that sermon to a Unitarian congregation sometime between today and the contest deadline of Feb. 2, 2018.
Participants can be ministers or lay people and must be connected to a Canadian UU congregation. The winner will receive a $150 prize, plus an invitation to present their sermon during the CUC 2018 ACM held in Hamilton.
B. Canadian Unitarian Art Contest: Create a piece of art that celebrates our new Vision Statement – the statement itself, not the five attached Aspirations. The art can be in any medium – painting, sculpture, songs, videos, poems. Participants should submit their original work or, if the work can’t be mailed, send photographs of the work.
There will be three categories, based on the creator’s age range: age 12 and under; age 13-17; and age 18 and older. Group projects, such as from an RE group, are welcome. Prizes of $50 will go to the winning piece in each category.
Deadline for submissions: Oct. 1, 2017.
Participants must be connected to a Canadian UU congregation. The winning pieces will be shared online with Canadian Unitarian Universalists.
