Conscientious Objection Workshop - May 21 - Lombard
On May 21, York Center Church of the Brethren (Lombard, Ill.) will host a workshop on conscientious objection, exploring the peace church tradition, the spiritual roots of these beliefs, and what the church would do if a draft were to occur. Times are 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., with morning and afternoon sessions and a break for lunch. Bob Gross, co-executive director of On Earth Peace will lead the session. Junior and senior high youth are invited, but parents and others who want to observe are welcome. The workshop is FREE except for lunch on your own. Youth are invited to stay for a lock-in afterwards. Call 630-627-7411 if you plan to attend.
