Almost Weekly Update

To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
-Ps 123:1


God is at work at Reconciler. Thanks be to God. Rev. Laura Gittardi-Littel graced us with her sermon two weeks ago. She is a candidate for our Episcopal Pastor position. Please keep her and our congregation in your prayers as we discern together who might be called to this position.

Rev. Cynthia Hallas served at the altar last Sunday and met with the Search Committee afterward to speak about our growing relationship with the Episcopal Diocese here in the Chicago area. She expressed a great hope in the relationship that exists and is growing. We are grateful for the work that she has done and is doing on our behalf.

We will have the pleasure of seeing both Cynthia and Laura again this summer.

Announcements:

There is a Reconciler Council Meeting on July 17th at 7pm at Immanuel Lutheran Church.

It may seem far away, but keep September 10th free! Reconciler will be worshiping with the Community Church of Wilmette that evening as they install Tripp Hudgins as their pastor. Again, we have great hopes that this will be a relationship that grows to benefit both congregations.

Peace and all good things to you this day!
