Pilgrimage of Hope
There is hardly a person in our world whose life has not been touched by cancer or another debilitating illness in some way or another and those who have been affected, need solace. We will be presenting a special program at First Congregational Church of Downers Grove that we anticipate will provide healing and hope to those people.
A Pilgrimage of Hope, a journey with cancer, is an hour-long presentation that takes its framework from the Catholic ritual called the Stations of the Cross. The program itself uses stories, prayers, and music - woven together to show that when something frightening is dropped on our doorstop, God is with us. And that through Christ’s journey to the cross we see God’s presence in the full range of human emotion and struggle in a journey that is both life and death.
It really doesn’t matter if you are Christian or participate in any form of organized religion for this evening to be meaningful. The presentation runs less than an hour, and there will be time afterward to linger and reflect or to talk with others going through similar experiences.
The Pilgrimage of Hope will take place Sunday, November 11 at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary of First Congregational Church at 1047 Curtiss Street, Downers Grove, IL. You can call our office at 630-968-0358 for more information
