What's Happening On Sunday?

Is Class a Religious Issue? @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Myriam Renaud, Community Minister
Economics and power play important roles in class issues. The service will focus on class inside UU congregations. Class is often invisible and, given the down-turn in the economy, we may be making inaccurate assumptions about "who is in the church." Let's explore what's going on, and play with some possible answers to the question of whether class is a religious issue.

What the Heck is Spiritual Growth? @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Reverend Tom Capo
We say that we affirm and promote encouragement to spiritual growth within our congregations.  Are we talking about developing a supernatural connection or are we affirming some sort of psychological development?  What does spiritual growth mean anyway?  There will be a time for spoken joys and concerns during the service. A special collection will be held for Light of the Hearth.

Sunday Morning Forum - 9:30am in the Learning Center
SCIENCE SUNDAY - Judy Cameron spent a great deal of her professional career as a food inspector in DuPage County.  Judy will talk about the science behind food inspection.  What causes food-borne illnesses and how does a government entity combat them?  How effective are food safety experts in keeping our restaurants and supermarkets safe?  Will increases in population create new challenges and will our current means of oversight stand up to these challenges?  Come, listen, and discuss the safety of our food supply!

Spiritual Practices @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Reverend Tom Capo                         
Many people can identify some spiritual practice.  Prayer or meditation might quickly come to mind as spiritual practices.  What is a spiritual practice and what purpose does it serve?  The DUUC Choir will be performing during the service.

What Is On My Heart? @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Reverend Tom Capo 
Reverend Tom has been preaching on themes since he arrived.  This service will not relate to the theme, but instead to what Reverend Tom has been thinking about recently.  What’s on his heart this month is ISIS and the Middle East.  There will be a time for spoken joys and concerns during the service. Art Freedman’s string ensemble will perform in the service and we will recognize our newest members. A fire drill will be held during both services.

Bread Sharing—Religious Traditions and Food  @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Reverend Tom Capo
Food is used in many religious traditions to celebrate, to remember, to bring attention to values.  How does food fit into Unitarian Universalist ritual and tradition?  We will break bread together in this service and consider its meaning.  This will be a multi-generational service—all ages are invited to attend the service.

YOUTH RE
Thanksgiving service for all ages.  No religious education classes. Everyone attends the service.

Sunday Morning Forum - 9:30am in the Learning Center
Worship Associate forum. Who are those people helping Rev. Tom during the services? How did they get to do that?  Worship associates are lay members of a church who work with the minister to plan and put on Sunday morning service. Currently, the worship associates at DUUC are members of the Sunday Services committee, but around January we will be asking for volunteers from our congregation who would like to join the team. If you would like to know more about what a worship associate does or have other questions, please come to the forum at 9:30am on November 23. We hope to see you there!

Sunday Morning Forum - 9:30am in the Learning Center 
Free screening of  STONE COLD JUSTICE (45 minutes), the Australian Broadcast Corporation’s groundbreaking investigative documentary about the Israeli government’s systematic strategy of threats, arrests, and detention of Palestinian youth in the West Bank, occupied territory.  Is this, as many Israelis suggest, simply part of the drive to maintain security? Or is it, as Palestinians claim, part of a much wider plan to make life in the West Bank intolerable for them? There will be a question and answer period afterwards with Virginia Wisdom, who traveled to Israel and Palestine several years ago as part of a fact-finding team.  This program is presented in conjunction with our UU's for Justice in the Middle East.
