On this Sunday after Thanksgiving, some of us may be tired of being grateful for stuff, so Tony is inviting us to send him some of our "pet peeves"--things that tick us off (about people, things, ourselves, and life in general!) Please either leave a message on his answering machine (262-632-9886) or email him (revtonylarsen@gmail.com). He promises to do his best to make them into a worthwhile sermon and service. (Will he make it? You'll have to be the judge that Sunday!) 

The choir will perform.

The US has some of the best healthcare in the world, but we do not enjoy the best health overall.  Worse yet, health in America is very unequally distributed.  Wisconsin is a good example:  our overall health gets only a “C” grade, and we get “D” and “F” grades for health disparities by race/ethnicity, educational attainment, and urban/suburban/rural locations.  Dr. Swain will discuss what really drives these poor outcomes and these large disparities, and how people of faith can help move us towards better health for everyone.

Geoffrey Swain, MD, MPH, served as an Associate Professor / Professor in Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, and as a faculty member at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Swain also served for 26 years as Medical Director for the City of Milwaukee Health Department, and before that practiced Family Medicine as a physician and as a residency program faculty member. Geof is the Founding Director of the Wisconsin Center of Health Equity. He continues to support the Wisconsin Population Health Service Fellowship Program, and in 2022 is serving as President of the Wisconsin Public Health Association (WPHA), which named him the 2020 recipient of their “Carol Graham Lifetime Achievement Award. Geof is a former member, past President and now friend of UCN.

The meaning of worship is

to be shaped by
what is of worth.

We gather together in spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.

Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.

UU CHALICE

When Unitarian Universalists light the chalice in worship, we illuminate a world that we feel called upon to serve with love and a sense of justice. To us, the flaming chalice represents the light of reason, the warmth of community, and the flame of hope.

We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.
