Centering Prayer Workshop Offered November 1 in Western Springs
Many Episcopalians and other Christians are finding that a method called “Centering Prayer” helps them move toward a closer and more meaningful relationship with God. Centering Prayer is a well-grounded method of silent prayer and meditation that prepares us to experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself…All are welcome.
For more information, visit www.centeringprayerchicago.org, or contact Phil Jackson, firstname.lastname@example.org, (847) 778-1022.
The Vicar’s Corner: Opportunity Knocks, Will You Answer?
My friends, there are so many opportunities to be part of this church. Physical presence is a fine start and trust me, I love seeing everyone!

Message of Support for Marriage Equality in Illinois from Bishop Jeffrey
The scriptures tell us to testify to what we have seen, and in communities and congregations across our diocese, we have seen that extending legal protection and respect to same-sex couples has created stronger, happier households and contributed to the common good. Now in Illinois, the respect afforded by civil unions has been extended to the dignity of true equality. I rejoice that it is now easier for our gay and lesbian sisters and brothers to order their lives together, to care for one another and to raise children in a stable home. Justice has been done. – The Rt. Rev. Jeffrey D. Lee, Episcopal Bishop of Chicago
