The Joy of Unexpected Change
Rev. Karen Madrone
Change is a constant in our lives, whether planned or unplanned, wanted or unwanted. It is the only thing we can count on in this life. Come let us contemplate the unexpected joy that comes along the way, if we can stay open to it.
Rev. Karen Madrone is an Interim Minister. She has served congregations in Cottonwood Heights, UT, and Decatur, IL. She is currently exploring the intersection of body and spirit through Personal Trainer classes at Malcolm X College and the Spiritual Direction and Formation program at Meadville Lombard Theological Seminary. Rev. Karen lives in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago with her wife Michelle, their dog Letty, and their cornsnake, Don.
The Worship Associate will be Susan Morrison Hebble and music will be provided by Jamie Pastman on piano.

It is impossible to struggle for civil rights, equal rights for blacks, without including whites. Because equal rights, fair play, justice, are all like the air; we all have it or none of us has it. That is the truth of it. ~ Maya Angelou

In addition to the Sunday morning service, members and friends can also gather to study religion and religious history, morality and ethics. They might work to further a cleaner environment or provide help to one another, enjoy one another’s company and just have fun. Like in any organization, church life is enriched the more one participates. The following are some of the committees, events, workshops and programs that help shape this congregation. They are open to anyone interested.
Ways to Get Involved
Life becomes religious whenever we make it so: when some new light is seen, when some deeper appreciation is felt, when some larger outlook is gained, when some nobler purpose is formed, when some task is well done. ~ Sophia Lyon Fahs
