Tikkun Olam: 
Repairing the World through Right Relationships
Reverend Scott McNeill
       Tikkun Olam is a Jewish concept that means "world repair." There are many ways we can do that work, but it must start with ourselves and in our homes. Today's worship explores the importance of seeking justice with one another, in order to do the same for the world around us.

A Thousand Beautiful Things
Reverend Mary Ann Macklin and Reverend Scott McNeill
Annie Lennox writes, "Every day I write the list of reasons why I still believe they do exist (a thousand beautiful things)...And even though it's hard to see the glass is full and not half empty (a thousand beautiful things)..."  In this worship service we will explore the spiritual interplay of optimism and pessimism as we encounter the challenges of the 21st Century.   We encourage everyone to bring a friend, who might enjoy our liberal religious community, to this newcomer friendly service.  
Bring a Friend Sunday is October 2
     Do you have a friend or acquaintance who would enjoy our congregation?  Would you like an excuse to invite them to join you for a worship service?  Here's your chance! Sunday, October 2 is Bring a Friend Sunday.  Our ministers will create a particularly newcomer-friendly worship service.   If you bring a friend, you and your friend will be treated to coffee, fruit and pastries in the Library from 10:30-11:15 that morning. Questions? Contact Ann LeDuc, Connections Coordinator at  

Covenanting: A Critical Part of UU History
Did you know that covenanting has been a critical part of our history - dating all the way back to the 17th century? After sailing across the ocean in search of a new life and new land, the Puritans - some of our religious ancestors - were compelled to create a covenant describing what their community would be like before they ever stepped off the boat.
            The "Cambridge Platform" (1637) emphasized a couple of ideas that we still hold onto: 
  • The local congregation has ultimate authority for decisions (because people gathered together locally should hold more weight than an authority figure who is far away); however, they can and should learn from other similar churches.
  • Being in relationship with one another was hard work, not meant to simply be "whatever goes" - but rather, they would help each other learn and grow.
  • The community was grounded in Love - a love that was about far more than keeping things on the surface and letting everyone do what they like; but, a love that meant they would deeply listen to one another and stay in community, even when there are disagreements.
  • And finally, A community grounded in this type of covenant and locally organized was demonstrative of their theology that our individual lives and perspectives carry with them some piece of the Truth.
Those things still hold true for us today (even if we have significantly different beliefs otherwise). We believe so strongly in covenant because of our grounding in humanism - understanding that how the world works is largely up to each one of us. We believe in right relationships because "process theology" is central to our community - knowing that the world is always changing and becoming, and we are a part of that. And, we believe in these concepts because we think every person is worthy of a Love so great that none of us are eternally damned, that we are all in this together.

In the coming months and years, we'll be talking more about covenant - but understand that it is not simply about the document or words used, but about the act of being together in Love.

In faith,
Reverend Scott McNeill, Associate Minister
MAM's Minutiae
1)  Vowing Not to Burn Out. In my sermon two weeks ago, I quoted Mushim Patricia Ikeda from an article in Lion's Roar (formally Shambhala Sun).  Mushim Ikeda is a social activist and teacher at East Bay Meditation Center in Oakland, CA.  She has formulated a "Great Vow for Mindful Activists," provided for her students in a yearlong program of mindfulness for social justice activists. My suggestion is to fill it out and place it on your bathroom mirror and recite it after you brush your teeth in morning and at night.  It's a good reminder.  I have also included a link to the full article.  Here is the vow.

Aware of suffering and injustice, I, _________, am working to create a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world. I promise, for the benefit of all, to practice self-care, mindfulness, healing, and joy. I vow to not burn out.  

          2)  Out of the Darkness WalkOur Connections Coordinator Ann LeDuc and I  are putting together a group of walkers and donors for "The Out of the Darkness Walk"  in Bloomington for the afternoon of October 2nd. This walk will support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention which is our nation's leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.  Please register HERE, and let us one of us know if you plan to join us. 
          3)  Vigiling At Life's End.  Applications are now available for our emerging vigil program.  I have been working with our Board of Directors to extend our congregation's sense of vigil to ministering to those who are at risk of dying alone.  As a result, we are partnering with the Sacred Dying Foundation, which will offer us training and support so we can become a pilot congregation for such a ministry, to sit in vigil with those who are dying.  We are partnering with local Long Term Care Facilities where we can be of service to those actively dying. The Vigil Volunteer Application is available at either of these links:  Click here for link to download in Word format or Click here to view as a pdf
       Applications are due next Sunday, September 25. Our first full day training will be on Saturday, October 8th.  I hope you will consider being part of this training.
Peace, MAM
Reverend Mary Ann Macklin
Our Folks...
    Our thoughts and prayers are with Mary Beth O'Brien and family; Mary Beth's brother Jim died unexpectedly last week. Cards are welcome.
    Congratulations to Cindy Brandes, who recently won a gold medal in bowling at the Indiana Special Olympics Summer Games.
From the UU Board of Directors - On Covenants
      Following in our theme of the month, Covenant, we have two key plans for the rest of the month. This coming weekend we will meet with leaders from the UUA MidAmerica Region to determine how the arrival of Reverend McNeill will evolve our congregational leadership. With their aid, we will covenant between the Board and Ministers to ensure clear responsibilities and authorities. At our regular meeting this week, we will continue our discussion of a congregational covenant. As Reverend Macklin said in her sermon on the 11th: "We seek right relationship to be in community with what is sacred in each of our lives." We look forward to wider discussion about leadership and covenanting.
-- Von Welch, Congregational President

UU History for You
Martha and Waitstill Sharp Help Establish the Unitarian Service Committee
Martha (née Dickie) Sharp was born and died in Rhode Island (1905-1999).  Her parents divorced and she was raised by relatives.  She went to Pembroke College and studied social work, going to Hull House in Chicago where she helped supervise 500 girls.  She met and married Waitstill Sharp (1902-1983) who was born in Boston and who attended Boston University,  Harvard Law School, and then Harvard Divinity School where he became a Unitarian Minister.  Martha and Waitstill took an interest in refugees when Hitler came to power and their articles and work led the AUA to send them to Czechoslovakia to help Unitarians and other refugees from occupied Sudetenland.  They did so until the Gestapo closed their office.  They then moved to Lisbon in 1940 and helped refugees from France, especially Jewish children that they relocated in Great Britain and later in 1943 in Palestine.  They worked with other groups during the war and participated in the escape of more than 1000 refugees from German occupation.  In 1945 the Unitarian and Universalist Service Committees merged to form the UUSC.  Their work has centered on refugee relief, education, civil rights, and health in areas where war, disaster, famine, or other disruption occurred.  The Sharps ended their marriage in 1954 and each later remarried. They were honored in Israel for their efforts to save Jews during WWII.

(PBS will air "Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War" tomorrow, Tuesday, September 20 at 9/8c, a film about the Sharps' work in Europe during WWII. See details below. --Ed.)
