Art and Spirituality: When Imagination Runs Wild

Sunday, January 24, 2021 @ 10:30am

By DuPage UU Church member, Dr. Kerry Freedman, Professor of Art and Design Education, Northern Illinois University

Since the early days of human beings, art has been used to visualize, investigate, and reify the idea of spiritual forces.  From cave paintings to church architecture, the visual arts have helped people to embody spirituality in order to worship, embrace, and sometimes control the intangible.  The theme this month is Imagination, and few human endeavors reveal imagination more than the arts.  This service will explore some of the ways the visual arts have supported spirituality historically and how they can act to support us now in our everyday lives.

Thinking Outside the Box to Let Everyone In

Sunday, January 31, 2021 @ 10:30am

By Steve Cooper, DRE & members of DUUC’s Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry Task Force

Necessity being the mother of invention has rarely felt more true than during the pandemic as we’ve sought alternative ways to enjoy Sunday services, do the work of the church, and connect with members of our beloved community. Similarly, people with disabilities and their allies often have to think outside the box to overcome the obstacles that keep them from fully participating in their communities. Please join Steve Cooper and members of DUUC’s Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry Task Force for an interactive live-streamed service where we’ll explore what the pandemic has taught us about accessibility. A discussion via Zoom will follow the service.
