An Unselfish World?
By Reverend Tom Capo

Would you say that we live in a unselfish world?  Sometimes people share their time, their resources, their energy, their worldview with others without any expectation of getting anything in return.  And sometimes, people cut in line, steal from another person, yell impatiently at someone, are unwilling to give even a penny to another person.  Are humans an unselfish bunch or not? There will be a Special Collection for Ecumenical Adult Day Care during the service.

SUNDAY MORNING FORUM - 9:30am in Learning Center.
Science Sunday and Bob Bahrey will take an in depth look at gyroscopes and gyroscopic motion.  One of the most common area that gyroscopes play a part is in steering a bicycle or a motorcycle.  Bob has some interesting demonstrations to introduce us to some of the counterintuitive aspects of this topic.  You will come out knowing which way to lean next time you are taking the turns at the Tail of the Dragon on the back of a friend's Harley, or riding your bike on the Prairie Path!

Generous Love: A Brief History
By Reverend Myriam Renaud  
What more fitting day to talk about love—understood in the West as the most generous of sentiments—than on Valentine’s Day. Many believe that love is the key to a meaningful life, unconditional acceptance, and happiness. But love cannot be commanded. Nor can it be taught or earned. Where then is it to be found? Rev. Myriam will explore several answers to this question.

How do I live a Generous Life?
By Reverend Tom Capo &
Steve Cooper, Director of Religious Education
This is a very good question?  How can each of us live a generous life?  Many of us give of our time, treasure and talent to help others.  How do we make decisions about what to give and how much?  How do we set priorities that include taking care of ourselves, and still live a generous life? This Sunday’s Service will also include the Outstanding Volunteer Recognition Ceremony and performances by the DuPage UU Choir.
