  • This week’s helpful resource: Two Resources. First, here is another helpful site if you are looking to understand better the 25th Ward. Second, I would just point out Spread Truth, which offers some great resources for help in understanding and sharing the gospel.
  • Did you know… Chicago’s own Jane Addams, founder of the Hull House (which is found in the UIC Area), was the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Peace (1931). The Hull House opened in 1889 to aid Chicago immigrants. You can learn more about Jane Addams here.

Have an amazing week everybody. Treasure Christ!
