Listening Session

We’ll Listen.

The United Church of Christ 32nd General Synod adopted a resolution establishing an Action Team to Conduct a Listening Campaign and Bring Recommendations on the Future of Christian Witness at General Synod.

The resolution reminds us that the Gospel of John reveals that it is in our one-on-one conversations with each other, when we take the time to ask what is on your heart and why are you weeping, that God shows up.

The Justice and Witness Team in Conjunction with the Fox River Valley Initiative will hold a facilitated conversation Saturday, August 3 beginning at 10:00am in Paxton Hall.

The outcomes of the conversation will be used by the J&W Team in developing goals for 2019-2025 in keeping with the Vision Statement recently adopted by the Church Council.

The outcomes will be shared with the Fox River Valley Initiative for consideration as areas of future actions. The FRVI is a coalition of 16 communities of faith, not-for profits, and other Civic minder organizations.

The outcomes will be provided to the Pastoral Search Committee for them to decide whether the information is informative for their purpose.

Children of Abraham + A Call to Prayer, Awareness & Action

Children of Abraham + A Call to Prayer, Awareness & Action

On Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 3:00 P.M., at the Peg Bond Pavilion near Batavia’s City Hall, members of the Batavia Christian and Islamic communities, together with other Abrahamic faith groups and people of good will, shall gather for a time of prayer, silence, presentations on recent events, and suggestions for action in response to the recent violent acts carried out against Christians and Muslims and Jews in Poway, California; Western Europe; the Holy Land; India; Indonesia; New Zealand, Nigeria, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Sri Lanka, to name but a few of the more recent occurrences.  We come together, because the fear and mistrust, the historical misunderstandings and prejudices must be addressed at the local level before there can be real hope of any movement or change at higher levels.  We hope to be the “pebble tossed in the pond” that causes the radiating of ripples outward to move others to prayer, awareness and action, in God’s Name.

This gathering will last an hour, after which there will be a time to meet and greet others. Please invite the members of your faith community to attend.  No offering will be received.  This is an event organized by the Batavia Ministerial Association, which includes the Batavia Islamic Center as a constituent member.
