Modern Judaism @ 10:00am
By Reverend Tom Capo
Judaism today is quite diverse, from Orthodox, to Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist.  And Rabbinical literature is based upon the Oral Law, its traditions and methodology in its different periods, its changing languages, and its varied forms.   We will consider the changes that have occurred in Judaism over time and how it is practiced today.  (This is a repeat of the sermon given in February, when there was a blizzard and most people were unable to attend the service). A special collection will be held for Family Shelter Service.

The Art of Living:  The Life and Faith of Joseph Campbell  @10:00am
By Reverend Denise Tracy
Familiar to many UU's because of the Bill Moyers interviews, Joseph Campbell has much to say to us about life and living fully.
Rev Denise Tracy was ordained in 1974.  She has had ministries on campus, in the parish, as a UUA Denominational Executive and as a Church Consultant.  She lives in Elgin with her husband, Bill Decker.  She is a Chaplain with the Elgin Police Department, is a partner in the church consulting firm, Insight Facilitators and received the MLK Jr Humanitarian Award from the Human Relations Commission of the City of Elgin for her work in the Elgin City of Peace movement.  She recently retired after 41 years of service as a UU minister.  Retired is just a word, it does not describe her life, whatsoever.
