Sermon delivered by Rev. Darrick Jackson on July 29, 2018. How do we survive in this changing world? What gives us the strength to keep going, to fight for justice, to be better human beings?

Rev. Darrick Jackson is the Director of Education of the UU Ministers Association. He is also an adjunct faculty member at Meadville Lombard Theological School and one of the authors in the book “Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity and Power in Ministry.”

Darrick is active in DRUUMM (the UU ministry for people of color). He is also the treasurer and Workshop Leader for Healing Moments (a ministry for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s).
 
In his free time, Darrick likes to knit and to be involved in theatre. He is married to James Olson, a United Church of Christ minister and lives with their two cats, Merlin and Morgana.

Jul 22, 2018

Sermon delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on July 22, 2018. Rev. Gage shares that if you’re paying attention at all to the news these days, it’s hard not to feel disoriented. To me, anyway, it feels like so much is in question. So much is up in the air. Sometimes I get overwhelmed. And sometimes I try and remind myself of that Sun Tzu saying about how in the midst of chaos, there is opportunity.

Jul 15, 2018

Reflections offered by congregants Emma Farrell and Alice Ocrey and Rev. Kellie Kelly on July 15, 2018. As part of this Unity Temple Mental Health Awareness Team (MyHAT) service, Emma, Alice and Kellie share how mental illness has touched their lives in the hopes that sharing their stories will help reduce the stigma, increase our understanding and encourage support.

Jul 8, 2018

Sermon delivered by Rev. Meg Riley on July 8, 2018. Some stories comfort us with familiarity; others surprise us as they evolve before our eyes. Improvisation, which may appear to go "anywhere" is governed by consistent guidelines which allow evolving stories to be strong, focussed and interesting. How could those practices serve us in everyday life?

Meg Riley currently serves as Senior Minister of the Church of the Larger Fellowship, a Unitarian Universalist congregation that began as an outreach to UU soldiers in World War II and continues to reach out to farflung UUs, including almost 900 people who are currently incarcerated. Riley has served the movement in a variety of other capacities. She lives in Minneapolis, where she has been studying improv for about 5 years.
