Ecumenical Connection February 2017

By February 21, 2017No Comments

A publication of the Illinois Conference of Churches

Please note the information on Pages 1-2 on our Rally and Interreligious Prayer Service Thursday, Feb. 23 in the Capitol Rotunda 1:30-2 p.m. (arrive at 1 p.m. to clear security) to pray for the passage of a state budget for FY2017 and 2018. All are welcome – invite your fellow clergy, employees of social service agencies and public schools and any citizen of Illinois. We have room for a speaker from a social service agency hit hard by the lack of budget and a public school administrator – or two. Also note our Annual Assembly save the date – Martin Marty will lead the Forum as we focus on the anniversary of the reformation.
