SUNDAY Morning Service ~ Oct 17 10:30 AM

Sunday Service IN PERSON & LIVE STREAMED on Zoom (link below)
We are meeting in person in the church parking lot. If you are unable to bring your own chair, we will provide one for you.

Rev. Allen Harden
Sermon: "Our Cathedral of Everything"
Wonder, awe, and mind-blowing mystery. The natural order and process of our universe is the greatest religious story. We constantly engage what is sacred – in us and around us – and we can benefit by holding the presence of nature, and our presence in nature, in reverence. How can we not feel humility, respect, and graciousness for the privilege of being alive?

BUC Spotlight

Movie: Blue Gold

Friday November 5th, 7:00pm at BUC:  BLUE GOLD (movie)
 Narrated by Malcolm McDowell, this award-winning documentary posits that we're moving closer to a world in which the scramble for water, an increasingly precious commodity, could actually incite war.  Ninety minutes (film) followed by discussion of questions such as Should the supply of water be handled by private companies? Do we pay too little for water in Chicago?  Should we allow other states or other nations to export water from the Great Lakes?  Is water worth fighting a war over and what might prevent that from happening?
