March Lenten Adult Forum

"Building Bridges" 

by Chris Hardman

In March we continue our Lenten series entitled "Overcoming Barriers and Building Bridges" or "Building Bridges" for short. On March 6th we welcome Mr. James Crocket from Rogers Park who has overcome a number of "barriers" and is now "building bridges." James was a member of a Chicago gang as a young man. Later, he found himself trapped in a cycle of drugs and homelessness. With the help of Good News Partners, James is now living in a house and teaching a very popular Bible Study Group in Rogers Park. His story of transformation is quite remarkable. On March 13th we welcome Loyce Spells, an Evanston policeman. Loyce will talk to us about the recent problems with police departments and racism as well as some ways of addressing the problem.

March 6th: Mr. James Crocket from Rogers Park. He will tell his story about overcoming barriers and building bridges.
