Come Dance for Peace at the UUCC

Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Every month, the Unitarian Universalist Community Church (UUCC) of Park Forest holds Dances of Universal Peace. These dances are circle, meditative, spiritual practices that use the mantras of all world religions.

This month’s session will be held on September 21, 2008, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the church. That day is International Peace Day so please join us to dance and pray for peace on our planet.

All are welcome.

Dances of Universal Peace were introduced in San Francisco in the 1960s by Samuel Lewis, a Buddhist and Sufi Master, to inspire young people without drugs, to eat, pray and dance together for enlightenment and peace. The North American Network for the Dances of Universal Peace has grown to include thousands of dancers in all our states.

The Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Park Forest began in 1953 as the new community of Park Forest grew. A more complete history is available.

We are now a community of about 92 members, friends, children, and youth inclusive of many religious backgrounds, races, sexual orientations, economic and educational levels, and lifestyles.

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religious expression of the human potential for understanding and interpreting life’s many challenges in natural rather than supernatural ways.

Unitarian Universalists follow congregational polity, a form of church governance in which the local congregation is the ultimate authority in the conduct of its mission. We are governed by a set of bylaws.

Our congregation is part of the larger Unitarian Universalist Association, which connects us within that millennia-old, world-wide liberal religious movement.

We are also connected to numerous other organizations whose links can redirect you to their websites.

Our own facility is a complete worship, meeting and education center located in a wooded, creekside area just off Western Avenue at the southern end of Park forest.

We invite you to explore our virtual home here on the Internet as well as contact us with your questions. Of course, we hope you will join us in person at one of our programs or services of worship if you feel your religious journey might well be with us.
