Sermon: "A Face in the Crowd"
When we see people with disabilities, we know to treat them with compassion. But what happens when disabilities are invisible?
You can believe in Santa on this magical day when we welcome the larger community for this favorite, annual FUNdraiser that fills our sanctuary with smiles. Yes, it is that time of year ALREADY. Comfort yourself, friends and family with hot food, good coffee and friendly faces all for a $5/person donation. You can also browse the White Elephant Holiday Boutique to find the perfect decoration to fill in that one empty spot in your home. Our 1st Floor is Wheel Chair Accessible.
Beverly Unitarian is opening its doors for anyone who might be in need. In the wake of injustice, we gather to know we are not alone. In the face of fear, we stand together stronger and more resolved. Instead of spreading hate we will continue to work for change. There will be music/conversation, perhaps planning and organizing, definitely community for whomever is here.
BUC is proud to have Lanetta Turner, Ex Dir, Cook County Justice Advisory Council, at 6:00 PM, here at the castle. This council makes needed funds available to support projects for equal justice. She will speak to us regarding the council’s goals, functions, achievements and future directions.
We’ve all been shocked and saddened by the number of young black men killed by the police in recent months. Another aspect of racial injustice is the mass incarceration of African-Americans. There will be a workshop on the prison industrial complex, of which mass incarceration is an integral part. The workshop is sponsored by the Social Action Committee. Please mark your calendars! This workshop is an introduction to the prison industrial complex (PIC) from an abolitionist perspective. Abolition means the replacement of the current, unjust system with a system that is just and equitable. We'll examine the PIC's roots, reach, and impact on our lives, as well as our ability to transform it. It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of the racial injustice in our society. This is an opportunity to learn and reflect on what we can do to change it.
Childcare for our youngest is available during services.
All children are welcome!
Reverend Marcia Curtis invites you to participate in a Buddhism-based meditation in a group setting. Join us Sundays at 7:30pm in the church sanctuary. Newcomers welcome.
