I want to thank the congregations and volunteers who made our recent Sacred Spaces: House of Worship Walk a big success. We co-sponsored this event with the Historical Society of Oak Park-River Forest whose support enhanced the event. Six local congregations — Calvary Memorial, First Baptist, First United, Grace Episcopal, St. Edmund and United Temple — opened their doors to the public.
The walk attracted visitors from throughout the metropolitan area, enabling participants to explore how diverse styles of architecture express and nurture the sacred messages of these congregations.
We are planning another walk next year, featuring congregations in a different part of our community.
