The featured speakers at this year's meeting are
- Lorin Cope: UCC Minister for Conference Relations. (He's filling in for Yvonne Delk, who is ill)
- Ruth Duck: Professor of worship at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (and prolific hymn composer!)
- Kyle Tade: Elmhurst College student who is actively involved locally and nationally with the United Church of Christ.
The big thing on everyone's mind is the session tomorrow where we talk about restrucuring the conference. I know there are strong opinions and convictions on many sides of this issue. I'm looking forward to a spirited but loving conversation.
