Living in the Tension Gathering

We will be changing things up tomorrow for our Living in the Tension gathering on Thursday, December 2nd. The Executive Director at Emmaus Ministries, Jonathan Hancock, has been gracious enough to share with our group about the work that they are doing to help men caught in prostitution to get off the streets of Chicago. We will be meeting at their offices on 921 W. Wilson Ave. at 7pm for the orientation. I will be waiting by the ground level doors at the Wilson red line ‘L’ station until 6:45pm on Thursday for anyone that is unfamiliar with the area that would like to have someone to walk with to their offices. Send me an email at and I will pass along my cell # so we can make sure to find one another at the red line stop.

Much love.
