March 05, 2017 at Robust Coffee Lounge in Chicago.
Join Step Up for a panel discussion in honor of Women’s History Month to discuss why these positions cap out at 20 percent representation, how we can propel more women to these offices, and what we’re losing through lack of equitable representation.
For Ash Wednesday we will have a community pancake supper at 6:00pm, followed by a worship service with ashes at 7:00pm.
Easter celebrates the event in which God tore down every barrier that separates us, and has reconciled us to God and to one another. Here we live out God’s radical welcome to all people. Join us at this diverse church, where we gather for 40 days in the season of Lent, for a time of focus and simplicity, leading up to Easter when we celebrate God’s life-changing love.
We are a multicultural, intergenerational church that welcomes all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. As a church comprised of people from diverse backgrounds, we celebrate diversity as a beautiful gift from God.

OUR HEAVENLY BODIES (Wunder der Schöpfung)
with live accompaniment by Coupler
Dir. Hanns Walter Kornblum, Germany, 1925, 91 min., NR, Digital
In 1925, German director Hanns Walter Kornblum set out to create a film unlike any that had come before. His aim was a film that would serve as both a summation of all the astronomical knowledge available at the time and a dreamy investigation of what wonders might await humanity at the advent of space travel. With the help of 15 special effects technicians and nine cameramen, Kornblum’s film is a technical marvel, one that revels in the beauty and mysteries of the universe, reminiscent of Carl Sagan’s COSMOS more than 50 years later.

Coupler is less a band than a creative organization. Founded in 2012 by Lambchop veteran Ryan Norris, its core is Norris along with Rodrigo Avendaño and Rollum Haas though its membership has at points swelled to as many as eight. At its root the project is an exercise in mutual cooperation of creative individuals and is an exploration of the intersections of man and machine, live and recorded, composed and improvised, stasis and flux.
“… exploring the nether-regions where the organic collides with the electronic…captivating and unhurried techno that sounded bucolic at first, then violent, then crumbling, but always with a deft momentum. You could feel it in your gut and in your skull…” – Ben Swank, Third Man Records
