These reflections were given by Senior Minister Rev. Alan Taylor on August 27, 2017, the official first Sunday of the 2017-18 church year. In a worship for all ages celebrating Homecoming Sunday, Rev. Taylor shares his love of the water communion and his growing awareness of how to live into the question: "Who are you to think that you can change the world?”

During the '16-'17 program year, our congregation was part of a program entitled Beloved Conversations: Meditations on Race and Ethnicity. In this podcast from the August 20, 2017 service, some of those participants share their reflections on participating and what they learned. Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage first gives a brief overview of the program. This is followed by reflections from Clara Lewis, Betsy Davis, Shirley Lundin, Elizabeth Freeland and Sybil Madison-Boyd with additional remarks from Rev. Gage.

Reflections offered by congregant David Llull and Intern Minister Kellie Kelly on August 13, 2017.

Sermon delivered by Rev. Brian Chenowith on August 6, 2017. Brian is a lifelong Chicagoan with roots in the South Side. His spiritual upbringing was Catholic and Anglican though he came to Unitarian Universalism in middle school. It was there, in that UU church where he spent his formative years, that he heard the call to ministry most clearly. He earned his degree in Theology & Religion from Elmhurst College in 2008. From there he entered seminary in 2011 after a period of discernment and preparation for theological education and graduated from Meadville Lombard in Chicago in 2014. Brian served two congregations as a ministerial intern for three years. Two of those years were spent at Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois and the remaining year was at First Parish in Concord, MA. Through these two congregations, the real learning in ministry happened. He is currently the minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, Kentucky.
