Upcoming Sunday Services
The Global Ethic
Sunday, March 25, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Vaclav Havel - Czech statesman, writer and dissident - once said that a world commonwealth required a transcendent global ethos founded on a sense of shared responsibility. This ethos could be found, he said, somewhere “in the primeval foundations of all the world’s religions.” There exists a document that captures this ethos. Come find out what it is and why it might matter to you! Mary McGinty will be performing on cello in this service.
The Joy of Creation
Sunday, April 1, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
As Easter and Eostre approach, we all are noticing the signs of new life. We see the beauty blooming around us and feel the joy of creation. Come and join us as we celebrate the spring equinox. The children will join us for this service. (There will not be Joys and Concerns during this service.)
Spirituality of Art
Sunday, April 8, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
How is it that a piece of art seen by many is seen differently by each person? Art can touch us mentally, emotionally, spiritually, if we allow ourselves to be open to it. Come and let us explore the spirituality inherent in art. Music will be performed by the West Wind Quartet: Colin Tang, oboe, Dane Engman, clarinet, Claire Zhang, horn and Andrew Li, bassoon. There will be a time for sharing Joys and Concerns during the service.
Spirituality of Music
Sunday, April 15, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Music is said to touch something ineffable, something deep, something emotional or spiritual inside us. When we open our ears to a piece of music, something resonates inside us. It's been said that a person’s life can be transformed by a piece of music. Come, listen through your ears and your heart. The DuPage UU Rock Band will perform. (There will be a time in the service to share Joys and Concerns.)
Earth Day for All Beings, a Multi-Species Justice
Sunday, April 22, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Nerma Frieden will share her life story as a survivor of the Bosnian War in the 1990s. She came to the US as a refugee and joined a UU church, where she began to connect the suffering she experienced to the violence that humanity commits against animals and the Earth. We will explore our own relationships to our human family and all of the Earth. The choir will share the gift of their voices, and our Special Collection will benefit Green Earth Institute in south Naperville, founded by DuPage UU member Steve Tiwald. GEI is a 60-acre organic farm that sells shares of its harvest directly to the community and offers educational programs year round, including summer children’s camps. It also donates its fresh produce to area food pantries.
Coming of Age
Sunday, April 29, 2018 @ 9:30am & 11:15am
The Coming of Age Service is the culmination of many months of thought, action, and learning for our 7th & 8th graders. The youth plan and present the service to share their accomplishments and experiences. This is an important passage for them and the congregation. Please join us to welcome these smart, funny, talented young people into the larger fellowship of the congregation.
