First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, 603 Wellington Cres., Aug. 31, 10:30 a.m. It is said that prayer is at the heart of religion; some say it is the oldest religious experience in the world. But what might this mean for Unitarian Universalists, or anyone who doesn't necessarily believe in God? Who, or what, would we be praying to, after all? This service explores the premise that prayer is a natural, universal and even helpful impulse, whether or not we profess a belief in a deity. Reverend Millie admits to some surprise this is the winner of the Time Machine survey.
