ILYM Annual Sesssions
Illinois Yearly Meeting Annual Sessions will be held June 24 to 28 on the ILYM campus near McNabb, IL.
Theme: From Mystic Voice to Active Voice. We are called, both as individuals and as a community, to a direct relationship with God. This year's theme calls for us to explore that direct relationship, how we nurture it in ourselves, each other, and our meetings. How do we testify to our larger community? In what ways do we do this as individuals, as a meeting, as a larger group of Quakers?
Online information and Registration is available at ilym.org/2015AnnualSessions.
