It’s serendipity that our congregation is exploring the theme of joy this month.
We’re filled with JOY at our return to Unity Temple!
We’re also filled with deep gratitude for our friends at United Lutheran Church, who shared their space with us for these past two years. We thank our ULC friends for their generous spirits.
Our spiritual home has been in the spotlight as it emerges from its cocoon. Many people are eager to see the restoration. The Chicago Tribune’s architecture critic, Blair Kamin, called the restoration “triumphant!”
Here’s a brief summary of some of the media coverage about our return to Unity Temple! We’ll add links here as they become available and clickable. NOTE: Some links contain video, and some sites may automatically play that video when you visit that page.
