Sunday, July 31 at 11:00 a.m. – Free the Fjallkona! – This year marks the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in Manitoba. Both the United States and the Unitarian Universalist Association are having elections that could result in the first female president. On Icelandic Festival weekend, when we celebrate the Fjallkona as a symbolic representation of Mother Iceland, can we also reframe, forgive, and free this symbol for the 21st century? Rev. Kathleen C. Rolenz and Rev. Dr. Wayne B. Arnason
Services are in the Gimli Unitarian Church's landmark building at 76 Second Avenue, near Centre Street. Dress is casual — after all, it's summer!
