 “Refuge” - Sunday, May 1st at 7 pm

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” – Rumi

Our culture is obsessed with ideas, and with deciding which ones are right and which ones are wrong. Since Descartes declared us “thinking things”, deconstruction has become the way to truly know. Yet throughout the ages, from every corner of the world, wise voices have spoken of another way of being and another way of knowing. Join us on May 1st at 7 pm in the sanctuary as we seek that other way through music, poetry and contemplation. All are welcome.


On Sunday, May 8, at 7:30 pm MacKay United’s 2015-16 Concert Series concludes with an exciting and unusual program, entitled “the Tree of Life,” featuring the Silflay String Quartet and guitarist Roddy Ellias.


Music will include Mozart’s String Quartet No. 19 (nicknamed “Dissonance”), String quartet No. 3 by Gavan Bryars, Tom Hoffman’s “Tree of Life”, and Roddy Ellias performing “Emptying,” his own guitar sonata. 


Tickets (adults $25, seniors $20 and students $15) – are available at Books on Beechwood, the Leading Note on Elgin Street, or at the door (39 Dufferin at MacKay).
