Fox Valley Association 2019 Fall Meeting
Oct 20 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Fox Valley Association will gather for its Fall Meeting on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at First Congregational UCC, 1047 Curtiss Avenue, Downers Grove, at 1:30 p.m.
The theme of the meeting is “Truth Telling: To Make More Visible God’s Love & Justice”
Truth seeking and truth telling: Jesus assures us that these are essential to finding and claiming the true freedom and life abundant that the Gospel promises. But how do we as Christians live out and make visible that Truth? Jesus’ actual, visible life and teachings of Truth may be best captured in God’s bold threefold call to us to “Do Justice, Love Mercy and Walk Humbly with God” (Micah 6:8).
Does this threefold challenge toward seeking and making visible God’s Truth inspire and exhilarate you or make you uncomfortable and cringe? Some of each, perhaps? Jesus didn’t say the Truth would be easy, of course.
Join us for faithful, mutual challenge, sharing experiences, and exploring the issues of single use plastics, domestic violence, economic inequality, and family separation. These are among the issues currently confronting our individual and corporate faith lives. We hope you will bring your passion, uncertainties, and sharing of how this truthful, threefold way of Jesus may be made visible in our lives, our churches, and in our world.
