The Ekklesia Project Board of Directors has decided not to hold our 2021 Summer Gathering at Techny Towers, Chicago.
We will miss being together in person—the hugs and handshakes, shared meals, walks with friends, children’s laughter, the stimulating presentations and the rich, important conversations they generate. We know that when we are able to experience these gifts again we will cherish them all the more.
And while Zoom fatigue is real, we believe that our timely theme, carried over from 2020, offers opportunities for virtual exploration, reflection, and conversation that we won’t want to miss in 2021.
So stay tuned for specifics as our plans come together over the next few months. At this point we envision a mix of recorded and live sessions with plenary speakers, worship, and guided group conversations, occurring over the course of a few weeks in the summer of 2021, with a possible meeting or two on the actual dates of the Gathering: July 8-10.
In the meantime, grace and peace to you and yours.
