Rev. John Smith
Sermon: "Affirmation in Action"
UU's are not always inclusive and affirming. Affirmations are read in many churches and have repetitions of words that are not always embraced by all. Many UU’s aspire to be loving and caring and peaceful but we are not always welcoming or affirming. Find out how you can choose to put our affirming words and thoughts into action.

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.
