SUNDAY MAY 22 ~ 10:30 AM

Guest Member in the Pulpit: Rev. Marcia Curtis
Sermon: "Radical Hospitality"
Jesus was a social revolutionary in his practice of radical hospitality. He ate with & healed the social outcasts -- prostitutes, tax collectors, lepers. The root word for hospitality means generous, caring, sustaining. Our first principle, respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every individual, calls us to a practice of radical hospitality today.

SPRING DINNER CONCERT ~ SATURDAY MAY 7

Event: 
May 7, 2016 - 7:00pm

Chicago's only castle offers the perfect setting for celebrating our long awaited Spring. No, we won't be hosting the lively auction that attracted so many because we had to acknowledge that these are days of scaling down on "stuff" in favor of experiences. With that in mind, planning a fundraiser to support the maintenance of our landmark building brought out our creativity. We decided to tap into the talent found within our community..

The Beverly Unitarian Church is rich with talented musicians, including Madeleine Walsh, Maria Moser, Kassie and Tristan Brown, Hank Jirousek and others. May 7th promises to be a memorable event, filled with good neighbors, delicious food and wonderful music throughout the evening. The event planners are hoping that people will gladly show their support and consider May 7th as the perfect time to invite friends who would love to "see" the inside of the Irish Castle without bringing home more things to dust.

You can purchase your tickets for the event by clicking on "Donate" at the top left of this page, by calling 773.233.7080 during office hours or from volunteers selling tickets.

MARCH 27, 2016 Thou Shalt Not Murder, A Hopeful Campaign

“Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now rise up,” says the Lord; “I will place them in the safety ​for which they long.”
Psalm 12:6
What would our world look like if each one of us actually had the courage to say the murder rate in Chicago makes life less for all of us - less rich, less full, less possible. We know that change will not happen unless we all change. As an act of public witness we are speaking out against the violence in our city. Do we have the courage to say no more murder?

That’s the question a coalition of faith and community leaders are asking. Can we create one day, in the city of Chicago, with every voice calling for no more murder? We believe that it can be done – and that it begins with one day, one clear dream, one achievable vision. It begins when people of every race, creed, and class agree together that the current levels of murder are not acceptable.

We stand together because we know that it doesn’t matter where someone is murdered. It does not matter if I knew them, or knew a friend of theirs, or even knew their name. When someone is killed there is something wrong with MY community – and I have the moral obligation to say no more.

It begins with one voice saying, "No;" it begins with you.
