July 14 @ 10:25 – Who Are Our Friends? Our Companions? – Rev. Jim VanderWeele

Rev. Jim shares a story of a night when the right of conscience and use of the democratic process were challenged, suborned, and beaten back in his presence. Shocked! Surprised! Forever changed! This message offers a realization that the values UUs cherish are still scorned by many, which makes the support of our values a critical step for all of us.


July 21 @ 10:25 – Improvising: Setting a New Course for Life – Rev. Jim VanderWeele

Justice, Equity, and Compassion offer us an opportunity for growth and change. Looking back at this brief chapter at Northlake, Rev. Jim is reminded of the journey of life: to live, reflect, learn, and point forward, always doing the best you can do. Come, join in, for a reflection on setting a new course for life here in this changing time.

July 28 @ 10:25 – Engaging: Charting Our Hopes for a Better Life – Rev. Jim VanderWeele & Aly Tharp

We welcome Aly Tharp, the program manager for Commit2Respond, to the Northlake pulpit. She will help us chart a course to direct this Beloved Community toward a better world (including the continuation of human life on this planet) for ourselves and for those around us.

August 4 @ 10:25 – Singing Our Way Through: Practices for Transformational Loving – Rev. Deanna Vandiver, Minister of Love and Liberation, Church of the Larger Fellowship

“We sang our way through how difficult this is.” -Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley, Willow Tree Flowers, It Is Time Now. Join in worship that celebrates and practices our ability to love beyond our known skill for loving, to co-create that which has not yet become. Together let us live into the promise of collective liberation.
