The Long Road Ahead: Preparation and Self Care
By Reverend Tom Capo
As a new chapter in America begins, there will be challenges as we work to support those who will be marginalized, to keep the rights we have gained, and to manage the bullying that is escalating. We each must prepare for the journey and remember to take care of our minds, hearts, and souls as we live our values. The DuPage Unitarian Universalist Choir will perform during the service. There also will be a time to share Joys and Concerns.

Sex, Death, and Rock-and-Roll
By Reverend Tom Capo and Steve Cooper, Director of Religious Education
Sex - not sexuality or gender, but sex - is with us all, on our minds, and reflected in our behavior and relationships until we die. How we approach sex, what we think about it, and the decisions we make regarding it change through our lifetime. Let’s consider sex, death, and rock-and-roll together. A DUUC Rock-and-Roll band performs during the service; come to enjoy the music as well as the message. Membership anniversaries will be recognized during this service.

Building Community through Giving and Receiving 
By Reverend Tom Capo 
We are all part of a Beloved Community. We build on our individual experiences with Beloved Community each time we interact with someone within and beyond our walls. How are our lives enhanced by Beloved Community? How do our personal efforts to give and receive play a part? There will a time in the service to share Joys and Concerns.

Sunday Morning Forum—9:30am, Learning Center
SCIENCE SUNDAY will explore The Making of the Fittest, DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution.  Come learn about IMMORTAL GENES and FOSSIL GENES and the role each of them plays in life.  DNA and genes prove that random chance and natural selection is the true explanation of how life has advanced on this planet.  Darwin was never exposed to Mendelian genetics or the code hidden in the nuclei of our cells, but the tale they tell is of utmost importance and completely support his amazing Theory of Evolution!  This will be fun!

Power and Outreach
By Reverend Tom Capo
In the work that we do to  help marginalized groups, there are many things to consider.  One of the most important is the difference in power between us and those we help. After we help them, what do we expect from them?  When they want to give back to us, how do we respond? There will be a special collection for PADS during this service.

Sunday Morning Forum—9:30am, Learning Center
Social Justice  - Our guest this month is Monica Cosby.  Monica is part of the Chicago UU Prison Ministry of Illinois (UUPMI) that fosters connections between UU congregations and Illinois prisoners.  Monica grew up in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, she was previously incarcerated for twenty years of her life, but now is dedicated to the work and struggle of others who are coming home from incarceration.  She will speak to us about her work with UUPMI, and how our UU principles correspond to the ideals of restorative justice.  UUPMI advocates for policy changes related to prisons, it offers a liberal religious ministry inside prisons, and it works to build welcoming congregations open to sharing fellowship and resources with people who have been previously incarcerated.  Please join us in welcoming Monica Cosby at 9:30am in the Learning Center.

How do We Receive?
By Reverend Tom Capo
Someone gives you a flower or a loan or kiss. How do you respond to these gifts? Let us explore how we receive from one another and ponder if personal changes could deepen our relationships. This is a multi-generational service.  The DUUC Choir will be performing during the service.  There will be time in the service to share Joys and Concerns.
