Sermon delivered by Chris Nemeth on June 26, 2011. Chris has been a UTUUC member since 2010 and lives in Oak Park with his wife, Tara, and their two girls, Marie and Vivienne. Chris speaks to how our popular society --a society wedded to the notion that we should ultimately be able to "have it all"-- seems increasingly fearful of and unprepared for the inevitability of disappointment, tragedy and, ultimately, death and loss.
