Unity Service January 22013

Christ Episcopal Church belongs to the Clinton Ministerial Association.

We hosted the city’s Unity Service January 22 at 2:00 PM

The theme was how we erect walls which hinder community and unity.

Some of the stones in the wall were discrimination, persecution, intolerance,abuse of power, isolation, and pride.

We were joined following worship for refreshments in the parish hall.
