What Evangelism Is and Isn't
Author Sara Miles, who has written deeply personal books on her conversion to Christianity and her ministry in poor communities in San Francisco, will be talking about listening when she gives the keynote speech at the diocese's convention on November 21 at the Westin Hotel in Lombard.
"I am really interested in talking about evangelism and what evangelism is and isn't," says the author of City of God, Take this Bread, and Jesus Freak. “The short version is that evangelism is about listening; it is not necessarily about telling." Read more.
Places of Grace and Gladness
The campaign for the Diocese of Chicago, Places of Grace and Gladness, is in the third and final stage. A call has gone out to congregations across the diocese asking for their participation in any amount possible. The response has been exciting and heartening. At this point in time over two-thirds of our congregations have indicated their commitment and the number grows each week.
As of now, every gift to the campaign goes to replenish the diocesan assets that make a variety of grants possible. These grants support and strengthen ministries across our diocese.
We give thanks to the parishes and missions that have pledged their support. View the list of participants to-date.
