Friday Update

The Humanists
April 10, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Online and in-person 
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
The Humanist movement among the Unitarians and Universalists, which began in the early 1900’s and continues to this day, has transformed our faith. It has cleared away old habits and created new ones.  It has created new language and made space for new possibilities.  We’ll explore where it comes from, how it has changed, and where it might be taking us now. 
Order of Service
We will Share the Plate with Maya’s House
MAYA’S House is a drop-in center for children under five whose families are homeless. Families come from Remedies, the domestic violence agency, Rockford Rescue Mission and other organizations where children are attached to the parents. MAYA’S House is not a full-time day care, though it follows DCFS guidelines for staffing, is licensed by the Winnebago County Health Department and meets the city zoning requirements for child care programs. Parents can leave their children with the day care provider while they attended the many appointments required by programs and government agencies who serve families that are homeless.

UU Passover Seder on Good Friday, April 15, 6 pm
Share in a UU Rockford tradition—a Passover Seder—complete with ritual foods and ancient words of freedom, in a family friendly community.  Bring your children, who have their own traditions to share.
A 5-course meal ends the Seder.   In our version, everyone shares the tasks.  Sign up to either set up, arriving at 5 pm; serve food; or clean up after the celebration ends.
The cost includes the meal and Jewish ritual foods, which are purchased in Buffalo Grove. Sign up in the Narthex, call Autumn at (815) 398-6322, or email the office by Sunday, April 10th.  Note if you want the vegan option.

Children over 10                             $   6
Children over 5                               $   3
