UCC Illinois Conference Annual Meeting 2009 - 3

The 45th annual meeting of the Illinois Conference of the United Church of Christ is over! Here are a few notables from the last couple of days

  • Robust discussion during the business meetings. We passed several resolutions, addressed some issues of anger and resentment (no, we didn't resolve them) and were moved especially during the times our chaplain called us together to prayer
  • Engaging and extraordinarily helpful preaching from Dr. Alice Hunt.
  • A lively and contagious worship service this morning with preacher Nathan Elder and an opportunity for me to have fun leading music
  • A sign of relief as we all head home.
Here's the song lineup from today:
