Just wanted to let people know that DuPage United is looking for a paid part time admin. Here is the job description.
Hello everyone! My name is Liza and I’m a member of People’s Church of Kalamazoo. I would like to invite all young adults ages 18-35 to join us for CONscientious, our annual young adult con. It will take place from January 17-19 at our church in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The focus of the weekend will be climate change; we will hear from climate activists and be empowered to reduce our carbon footprint. We will have numerous workshops to choose from, including guided meditation, a book-club, and making your own body oils! We hope you’ll join us for a wonderful weekend of connection and renewal. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. See you there! Registration link -

Helpful practices from Joanna Macy as we face a world that seems to be coming apart. Breathe. Find gratitude. Respect your pain for the world. Engage with benevolence. Expand your vision of time. Today and always - ground yourself in love and connection~
The Space Between Birdsong and new yellow blossoms, rain-filled air; spring emerging at long last from winter’s embrace. Can I drop into this moment, find what us hidden in clear sight? Eternity, the spaces between what science can find and measure? Each atom, proton, neutron, electron, more space than not, where creativity and possibility endure. Breathing in, I know connection. Breathing out, I remember emptiness. Out of winter, spring. Out of nothing, something. Birdsong, yellow blossoms, rain-filled air. And the world goes on… Pamela Rumancik 5-3-18

From the Magazine: ‘It Is Time for Reparations’

“A truly great country does not ignore or excuse its sins. It confronts them and then works to make them right,” Nikole Hannah-Jones wrote in The Times Magazine in her case for reparations. “If we are to be redeemed, if we are to live up to the magnificent ideals upon which we were founded, we must do what is just.”

nytimes.com Nikole Hannah-Jones explains the history of economic injustice and argues that if black lives are to truly matter in America, the nation must finally pay its debts.

Your Money: A Hub for Help During the Coronavirus Crisis

nytimes.com If your income has fallen or been cut off completely, we’re here to help. This guide will connect you to the basic information you’ll need to get through this, including on government benefits, free services and financial strategies.

Here we are in a somewhat indescribable moment in movement history and time.
We are witnessing the reclaiming of human dignity across the country. We are witnessing our siblings plead with America’s hearts and minds to understand that Black life is also sacred and worth living. We are witnessing communities across the country asking for the disinvestment in brutality and violence but the investment in services that will help communities and people thrive.
We are witnessing siblings willing to risk their lives in the midst of a pandemic take to the streets to say, “Enough is Enough!” and yes, enough is enough!
Unitarian Universalism tells us that everyone has the right to live with dignity and respect. Everyone has a right to thrive in a vibrant democratic society that meets the people’s needs and encourages all of us to shine.
Our UU faith, our commitment to Side with Love in action and deed, is a critical part of this moment and the overall movement. Let’s show up and bring the best of ourselves.
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that we are all radically interdependent, and when any of our communities suffer, we all suffer. In this moment, we need the leadership of those who know that while we must protect one another in the present, we must also build toward a future in which all of us are truly free.
Our 30 Days of Generosity during June is meant to highlight the UUA’s work in 2020 and how programs are shifting to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We must also be nimble and responsive to the uprisings happening now all over the country.
We’re committed to our congregations and movement organizations weathering this storm. Black and Latinx grassroots organizations are leading us to build in the present in a way that honors our collective futures. Please support these organizations or others like them:
• Trans Justice Funding Project
• National Bail Out!
• Mijente
Pamela, if you are able to make a gift to Side with Love in addition to that support, please do so. Your support for Side with Love is how we can bring the amazing collective power of UUs to the fight for justice. We can make an enormous difference as we seek to build beloved community on earth.
However you decide to Side with Love, I invite you to #SayHerName and say their names collectively; it is no mystery that Black lives have been lost by police violence.
I cry as I remember the names of someone’s baby—we are all someone’s baby—who was murdered never to return home again. I close with these names: Emmett Till, Amadou Diallo, Sandra Bland, Oscar Cain, Korryn Gaines, Reika Boyd, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and the list goes on.
As the pain and grief of centuries of violence without justice find their expression, let us remember the words of Dr. Gwendolyn Brooks:
"We each other’s harvest, we are each other’s business; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
May we live into these words. May we stretch ourselves to see the dignity of others outside ourselves and be in the business of dignity for each of us. May our bond be one that lifts up humanity and build a world where we never have to question one’s inherent worth.
I continue to extend this invitation to be on this journey together. May it be so!
Choose Love,
Everette R. H. Thompson
Campaign Manager, Side with Love

Our Story

Founded in 1887, The Unitarian Church of Hinsdale is now well into its second century of service to Chicago’s western suburbs. Our 200 members are drawn from many communities and represent a broad mix of men, women, children and teens with a common spiritual bond–the freedom to pursue a liberal and humanistic religious life based on individual freedom of belief. Our religious education, Coming of Age, and Youth Groups stress tolerance and inclusion and help our children develop their own beliefs and ethics, in an environment free of dogma and fear. Our church is a Welcoming Congregation, dedicated to inclusiveness towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people. The UU Ministry for Earth has certified our church as a Green Sanctuary in recognition of our programs and achievements in fostering sustainability for our faith community and our members. Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry has certified us as a Reverence for Life Congregation, the first in the world. To learn more go to: www.hinsdaleunitarian.org
