Sunday service recordings from the UU Church of Urbana-Champaign, Illinois (UUCUC).

Unitarian Universalism is a progressive, liberal religion that embraces theological diversity. Unitarian Universalist congregations include atheists, agnostics, and believers, and do not share a creed, but are unified by a shared search for truth and meaning in our lives. The roots of Unitarian Universalism are in liberal Christianity, specifically Unitarianism and Christian Universalism. From these traditions comes a deep regard for intellectual freedom and inclusive love. UU congregations and members today seek inspiration in and derive spiritual practices from all major world religions, and also from secular teachings.

We welcome different beliefs, and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

    #2034: The Life and Teachings of Congressman John R. Lewis (08-23-2020)

    Recorded live, Sunday August 23, 2020, The Life and Teachings of Congressman John R. Lewis, Rev. Florence Caplow. 
    “I believe that you see something that you want to get done, you cannot give up, and you cannot give in.” This summer we lost Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights hero, a man of towering moral integrity, and member of Congress for 33 years. When he died the whole nation mourned, and four former presidents offered words of gratitude and admiration at his funeral service. In this service we will celebrate, learn from, and be inspired by his life and word.

    #2033: Back to School in Fall 2020—The Long and Winding Road (08-16-2020)

    Recorded live, Sunday August 16, 2020, Back to School in Fall 2020—The Long and Winding Road, Janet Revell Barrett and Sam Beshers. 
    For many, the start of the school year welcomes new beginnings. This fall, however, we arrive at this point after the most unusual summer in memory—in which the isolation of the pandemic, the turning point of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the uncertainty surrounding school openings have left us wondering about the road ahead. This service, inspired by a Beatles’ tune, will look to the past to reflect on the school desegregation movement of the 1950s; the present, through the challenges of public service as a school board member; and the future, as secondary school teachers look ahead to the coming year.

    Recorded live, Sunday August 9, 2020, Souls Matter, Sam Beshers and Sherry Bohlen. 
    Soul Matters small groups have added a new and vital dimension to church life and our community. Soul Matters groups work with a different theme each month, and meet to share their experiences and insights from the theme. A key feature of Soul Matters is deep listening, in which the group members commit to giving every member the space to articulate and to share their thoughts. Soul Matters is better experienced than described. In this service we will share a Soul Matters group meeting, to bring the Soul Matters experience to a wilder audience.

    Recorded live, Sunday August 2, 2020, The Poetry of Summer, Chris Hannauer, Erich Adickes, Kathy Robinson.
    For many years this church held a “Poetry of Winter” service in early January. This year we are turning that upside down and exploring poetry as a summer activity. Please join us, as members and friends of UUCUC share the “poetry of summer,” poems that invoke the season for us, even if they aren’t explicitly about long sunny days or walks along a beach.
