Confluence Lecture SeriesCandles in a heart shape

Canadian-Unitarian-Liturgical-Calendar The Confluence Lecture Series is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Ministers of Canada (UUMOC), and presented by a chosen minister at the CUC’s National Conferences. The lecture topics are often provocative, always thoughtful, and usually aligned with the theme of the conference at which is was delivered.
