  Welcome to the Universalist Unitarian Church of Peoria, Illinois. It's not easy to sum up our church in a few words, but a good place to start is with our mission statement:

• Embracing Freedom
• Loving Inclusively
• Growing Spiritually
• Healing Our World

We offer you the freedom to follow your own path to spiritual and religious truth. Everyone is welcome in the spirit of inclusive love and acceptance. Here you can grow spiritually in a caring, supportive community. And you can help heal our world by getting involved in community and global outreach.

If this sounds like something you'd like to know more about, we invite you to explore our website. You'll find lots of information about who we are and what we offer. We welcome your interest and extend a sincere invitation to visit our church.

A Rare Moment of Consensus
Rev. Michael Brown
Amazingly enough, religious leaders from almost every faith are agreeing that our country should say Yes to refugees from Syria. This includes conservative leaders who we might expect to support the conservative political line. Isn't this a remarkable alignment of diverse voices? Maybe it's the season or maybe it's just the right thing to do.
The choir will sing today.

Hanukkah: A Myth of Returning
Rev. Michael Brown
Tis the season of myths of light: Hanukkah, Solstice, Christmas. The story of Hanukkah is part of a family of stories that draw on the theme of light disappearing and then reappearing. What do these stories tell us about our world and our human challenges? Tis the season of light, hope, and renewal.
Traveler's Dream will share their music with us and the choir will sing today.

Saturday, January 2, 8:30 AM-1:30 PM
As we move from 2015 to 2016, make some time to practice being fully present in every moment at our 4th Annual Mini-Retreat for the New Year. We will keep silent and alternate between sitting and walking meditation (sitting and walking instructions will be given for those who are new to practice), and we will also have a dharma talk. We’ll share light refreshments at the close of our retreat. All are welcome, whether new to meditation practice or experienced. Please email the church at office@peoriauuchurch.org if you plan to come to help us prepare both meditation/walking space and refreshments.
