Today begins three days of the 42nd annual meeting for the Illinois Conference, United Church of Christ. We're meeting at Elmhurst College. This year's theme is "God is Still Speaking . . . Summoned to Serve." I'm really looking forward to the whole event -- as it has been several years since I've been able to attend the whole thing.
The featured speakers at this year's meeting are
Rev. Linda Jaramillo: Executive Minister of the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries
Rev. Dow Edgerton: Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Ministry at Chicago Theological Seminary, and
Ms. Katie Mellentine: Member of Granville United Church of Christ and the Illinois Conference Youth Initiative (ICYI)
I'll post some reaction to the meeting here over the next few days.
