MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM) The life of the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, was a life of grand success. In his high moral qualities, his spiritual power, his high resolve, the excellence and perfection of his teaching, his perfect example and the acceptance of his prayers, in short, in every aspect of his life, he exhibited such bright signs that even a person of low intelligence, provided he is not inspired by unreasonable rancour and enmity, is forced to confess that he was a perfect example of the manifestation of Divine qualities and was a perfect man. (Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah & Imam Mahdi)

“Journey to the Planet of the Senses” invites children on a journey through outer space to discover intriguing aliens in a neon clad world while learning about sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. In our story, a very special boy-turned-space-explorer befriends a robot fueled by touch, a giant nose with a naughty booger, a curiously cute space dog and more non-“sense”-ical creatures from this strange planet. Ballet meets a “Tron” like atmosphere with upbeat tunes both futuristic and memorable. The “Journey to the Planet of the Senses” inspires the discovery of science through whimsical imagery creating an exciting opportunity for early learners and their families.

Ride for Refuge. 91 Commercial Court. Saturday, October 4, 2014. Free
This year on October 4, 2014 in Calgary (and in select cities all around North America), bicyclers will have the chance to participate in Ride for Refuge, a fantastically fun, family-friendly bike-a-thon supporting charities serving the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited. Bikers can choose to ride alone, or make a team to support a charity of their choosing. HART (Humanitarian Aid Response Teams) is encouraging riders to join a team in support of Ukrainian refugees. HART has been working over the past several months to evacuate orphans from the war zones in the Eastern part of Ukraine. HART has assisted in evacuating over 400 orphans and relocating them to safe facilities in Central and Western Ukraine. An orphanage HART evacuated recently was bombed the day after the children were removed. Many of them will not be able to return to their orphanage for up to a year even if or when the fighting stops. Their facilities have been damaged by the war and are in need of repairs. Hart is now challenged with the task of housing, feeding, clothing, and providing medical and dental assistance for hundreds of displaced children.
