Sermon offered by Rev. Jennifer Innis and Amy Popp, CRE, from the Universalist Unitarian Church of Peoria, IL
"Hidden Figures" - To Be Free or Free From - President Franklin Roosevelt spoke of the Four Freedoms in 1941, including freedom of speech, freedom to worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. Author Margot Lee Shetterly names these freedoms in her account of the Black women who advanced the effort to send people to space. We explore freedom from want as found in the movie, Hidden Figures, and how moving beyond such oppression brings us closer to the stars.
July is Movie Month
The Worship Committee will be joining with other UU churches around the country to present Summer Movie Collaborative. We will be showing movies on
Saturday nights in July
that will sync with the Sunday sermons. It's not necessary to attend the movie nights in order to understand the sermon that Sunday, but it's a fun community activity for us to enjoy. More information to come soon. Contact John Faber or Maya Lazarus with questions or comments.
