The Association of Trained Intentional Interim Ministers Annual Conference will be October 4-5 at Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center. The theme: Bringing Justice: Immigration and Civil Rights will feature two speakers - Rev. Dr. Damayanthi Niles, Professor of Theology at Eden Seminary and Rev. Dr. Traci Blackmon, Acting Executive of UCC Justice & Witness Ministries and Senior Pastor of Christ the King UCC in Florissant, MO. Both have broad experience in bringing people together in response of faith to issues such as immigration and civil rights, as well as sensitivity to those who struggle with the biblical command to bring God's justice. Both were likewise identified as for their response in faith to the crisis in Ferguson, MO.
