Sermon delivered by Rob Breymaier on June 26, 2016. Rob has been working on fair housing policy for over 20 years. As Executive Director of the Oak Park Regional Housing Center, he leads the nation's most successful effort to promote integration and fair housing in the private housing market. Through the efforts of the Housing Center, Oak Park has established and sustained a racially integrated community that has produced multiple benefits for residents. Rob also served as the past President of the Chicago Area Fair Housing Alliance. In 2006, Rob led a successful effort to ensure that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac wouldn't implement policies akin to redlining that would have added down payment barriers for mortgages based on zip codes. Rob has been interviewed for a variety of media outlets including Marketplace, The Washington Post, The New York Times, NPR and the Chicago Tribune. He also writes the Fair Housing Futurist blog, discussing topics on how to promote more integrated and inclusive communities.

Sermon delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on June 11, 2016. A homily for Flower Communion Sunday: What happens here every week is just this: we come together, bringing whatever gifts we have to share with one another. (Sometimes even when we feel like we don’t have any to share.) And we leave, having been changed by being here. The flowers are only a concrete reminder of that.
