Sermon: "The Moral Demands of Climate Change"
This sermon was written by Rev. Marilyn Seward, 1st Unitarian of Portland, OR, and adapted for this service to include specific action we can take to create the social and political will to address this most pressing problem. "At its core, global climate change is not about economic theory or political platforms, nor about partisan advantage or interest group pressures. It is about the future of God's creation and the one human family." - US Catholic Bishops, Global Climate Change: A Plea for Dialogue, Prudence and the Common Good, 2001.
Music: The BUC Choir
The ABC Committee and Southsiders for Peace will host this Friday evening event. After dinner, we will view "The Happy Film," a feature-length documentary in which graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister undergoes a series of self-experiments outlined by popular psychology to test once and for all if it’s possible for a person to have a meaningful impact on their own happiness.
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.
“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.”
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.
