Sunday Service: “Understanding Illness”

October 2, 2016


Rev. Dena McPhetres, First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

“Understanding Illness”
with The Rev. Dena McPhetres
Jack Forbes Wilson, Resident Artist

How can we understand healing unless we understand illness?

When you’re sick, do you feel like you are living in a foreign country and may never get home to being well?

Why are some types of illness embraced by family and community and other types avoided or shunned?

This Sunday, as we kick off our month-long focus on “Healing,” Rev. McPhetres will share some helpful insight on mental illness, physical illness, being soul sick and the connections between them all.

This is Pastoral Care Recognition Sunday. You can learn more about our Pastoral Care Program here.

Rev. Dena McPhetres became Associate Minister at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee in 2009, after serving Unitarian Universalist congregations in Oregon, Minnesota and New Hampshire. Dena received her Bachelor of Arts degree in women’s studies from the University of Minnesota, and her Master of Divinity degree from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.
