We are a Unitarian Universalist Congregation

Serving Southwest Chicagoland

October 2021

Services: Attend the outdoor services in person or join the livestream on Zoom (check the weekly email for the link).


October 3 - "What's Love Got to Do with It?"      

Rev. Allen Harden

First Corinthians is one of the earliest Christian documents, written by the Apostle Paul even before any of the Gospels were codified. I will look at 1 Corinthians 13, the famous paean to love. (Love is patient; love is kind; …love never ends) as a way to approach the world and

thought of Paul and early Christians. There is much to learn about Church history here, and relevant lessons about how worldview influences what we see and know.


October 10 - Living Into Our Wildest Dreams

Rev. Elizabeth A. Harding

The 8th Principle calls us into conversation with our history and our future as Unitarian Universalists. Offering some history for us to think and feel about as we explore our proposed 8th Principle. Videos from GA and guiding questions for your congregation to keep the conversation going will be offered. Love guides us on and we have a great opportunity to talk about who we want to be in the future.


October 17- Our Cathedral of Everything                                                                       Rev. Allen Harden

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?


October 24 - Why? (The Power of Purpose)                                                                    Pat Hofmann

We often find ourselves living our lives focused on What? When? How? and Who? But Why? is their leader, to guide us toward Purpose. As a spiritual guru, Purpose offers meaning to the past and present, a buffer for the ups and downs of life and guidance for the future, employing What, When, How and Who as support staff.


October 31

Radical Kin                            Rev. Marcia Curtis 

Radical kinship is extending unconditional love to everyone, as if they were close family. Father Gregory Boyle's work with gang members in Los Angeles provides an inspiring example. What changes would we have to make to exemplify radical kinship at BUC?
