The Community Church of Lake Forest & Lake Bluff is pleased to present the Rev. Linda Loving as “Julian of Norwich” in the Lily Reid Holt Chapel at Lake Forest College on Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. Rev. Loving is a professional actor and Presbyterian minister who has performed as Julian throughout the world over the last 20 years.
Many in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff will remember Rev. Loving, who began her ministry at the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest. Following her ministry in Lake Forest, Rev. Loving served the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago and as Senior Minister of “tall steeple” churches in both Oakland and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Julian of Norwich (1342 – 1416) is widely regarded as one of the most important Christian mystics. Despite a tumultuous life, Julian embraced an optimistic faith, and spoke of God’s love in terms of joy and compassion. Thomas Merton called Julian “the greatest theologian of our time.”
The event is open to the public. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Community Church office, 117 Scranton, Lake Bluff, by calling 847 234 8191 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
