This event is scheduled to occur on Thursday, June 21, 2018; 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time. Live streaming video will be available during that time.
The Ministries and Faith Development Staff Group invites you to join us at this service where we honor those who have died, recognize those who have completed active service, and welcome those who have received fellowship, credentialed or certified status in the past year.
“Sounding the Call”
In this climate of uncertainty, heartbreak, and doubt we move to empower faithful living in unexpected places, through unsung heroes, while bearing witness to a love that encompasses all.
The sermon will be delivered by the Rev. Sofia Betancourt, Assistant Professor of Theology and Ethics at Starr King School for the Ministry. Her work as a religious educator, parish minister, and seminary professor provide well-honed leadership qualities that prompted the UUA Board to appoint her Interim Co-President of the UUA for the Commission for Institutional Change on April 10, 2017.
Our Music Director, Amanda M. Thomas, is the current Director of Music at Second Unitarian Church of Chicago and a member of Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Oak Park, Illinois. She serves on both the UU Musician’s Network Board of Trustees, and the UUA’s Music Leadership Certification Committee. She earned a B.A. in music from Saint Xavier University of Chicago, where she specialized in voice and choral conducting.
