Friday Update

From Inclusion to Belonging
September 25, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Online and in-person 
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

We’ll look directly at our theme for September, “Belonging” and explore why this is such a powerful concept.  How might belonging shift our understanding of our common life together, and how can we resist efforts to cheapen or commodify it?

We will Share the Plate with JFON

Northern Illinois Justice For Our Neighbors (NIJFON) provides free high-quality legal services to low-income immigrants, engages in education and advocacy efforts and builds cross-cultural relationships.

In addition to legal services provided by skilled attorneys at clinics across Northern Illinois, staff and volunteers provide hospitality and needed childcare, assist with requisite paperwork and offer a free legal consultation for every immigrant who comes to the clinic.

Rooted in the United Methodist Church and moved by our faith to welcome immigrants, we are a non-profit organization that welcomes people of all background and faiths.
