Sermon: Care for the Soul
Rev. Karen Mooney
Every day we get the opportunity to resurrect our intuition. Every day we get a chance to care in the here and now, not for some far off tomorrow. We pay attention to so many things in life that are in obvious need: the car, dinner, homework, reports... When we set aside time to care for our inner lives we ensure that the rest of the more obvious needs are met with appropriate regard. Caring for soul is remembering what matters most today and why.
Music: Jean Hardy Robinson
March is Women's History Month and we will do our celebrating at Fat Tommy's restaurant located at 3031 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood.
Our activity for the evening will be a lively game of Trivia that focuses on women and their contributions throughout history. So bring your smart self and your smart friends for a fun and informative evening of laughter, brain wracking and friendship. If you don't win first place you might still go home with... a grand booby prize. Second place winners get their money back and first place winners get half of what is left.
Order from the menu available for viewing at...
$7 per person ~ We will organize teams when everyone arrives or "stack the cards" and bring your own team.

The decision of the St. Louis grand jury is expected tonight. Since before the 1964 Selma march, UU's have always stood against racism and for justice. In that tradition, here are two venues where we can express whatever sadness, disappointment or anger we might feel after the grand jury decision. On the day of the grand jury announcement there will be two gatherings:
1) State and Jackson, at 5 pm, organized by Stop Mass Incarceration.
2) 3510 S Michigan (CPD headquarters) at 6:30 pm, organized by the NIA project and the Chicago Light Brigade.
3) There will be an interfaith vigil this evening at 7pm, at First Unitarian Church in Hyde Park, 57th St & Woodlawn.
This is an important turn of events for our community and our brothers and sisters who suffer from ongoing police brutality, black, Hispanic, and white. It's an opportunity to to proclaim that Black Lives Matter.
Saturday, November 15th ~ 7 PM
Fun spirited and lively, our trivia MC, Nikki Isleb, never disappoints. Her fun and challenging questions make this a night of head scratching and laughter for the whole family. You can bring your own team of up to six people or come on your own and join others. Six heads are usually better than one... unless you think you are a real smarty!

On Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11th. the Religious Education group did a fine job of showing their support for the walkers in the 15th Annual Beverly Breast Cancer Walk. Trees were decorated with pink bows and pompoms and the children provided jovial cheers and cold water! We used 1,200 paper cups and could have used more because there were more than 12,000 participants!
Last year, $540,000 was raised via the 3-mile walk. The proceeds help the Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park. Since its inception, the event has raised $3.4 million, which has built the suburban hospital's cancer center and its Comprehensive Breast Health Center as well as paid for upgrades to the mammography department.
This year, funds raised from the walk will be directed toward clinical services. This includes a designated breast nurse navigator, who will offer individualized assistance to patients and families facing the disease as well as provide survivorship plans. The money raised in 2014 will also be used to hire a research coordinator who will identify patients eligible to participate in clinical trials at the hospital.
It was great to see our children working hard to support such a worthwhile endeavor. We can be very proud of our kids and the grown-ups who participated.
Childcare and religious education is available during services.
All children are welcome!
