The Church of the Holy Spirit (400 E.

Westminster Ave., Lake Forest)


7:30 a.m., Jan. 10, Armour

Room. Guest speaker

Graham Cook. Graham’s

faith journey runs

the gamut. From Catholic,

to agnostic to Buddhist

and back to Christian, he

realized his original problem

with what he was

taught revolved around

the teachings ABOUT

Christ, only to be drawn

back by the teachings OF

Christ. As Graham says,

“Prepositions matter.”

Graham is a very active in

CHS’s Young Pups ministry,

and his knowledge of

Christ and his teachings

and related ability to communicate

and reflect on

challenging and complex

matters are such welcome

blessings!

throughout the service,

with many coming early or

lingering to meditate in the

quiet of the sanctuary.
