Join us on Sunday May 19th at the Chicago Cultural Center as we celebrate our successful capital campaign and honor special guests Dr. Toyin Falusi Adeyemi and The Rev. David O. Kyllo.
Our special evening begins with cocktails and nibbles overlooking magnificent Millennium Park at sunset. A table of Silent Auction items will be there to tempt you, as well as 2 cases of wine and spirits to take a chance on winning.
Our new, meaningful theme, Healing One–Healing the World, is explained by Rabbi Yaacov Dvorin, Board of Trustee member:
“We find the story of Creation in the Torah, (what Christians refer to as the Old Testament) featuring the creation of the first human being, the creation of Adam. That raises the question of ‘why did G-d create the world with just ONE person’, as opposed to creating a world with a full civilization, a full population, which certainly was possible, within the capabilities of an omnipotent G-d.
The answer is taught that G-d created humankind with just the creation of just ONE human being to teach us the eternal lesson that, at that moment, the entire world included just ONE PERSON. Therefore, the world was represented by just one person.
We learn from this that when we heal ONE person, we are effectively healing the ENTIRE world since, at the time of creation, the entire world was made up of exactly ONE PERSON. Therefore, when we provide healing, comfort, and support to ONE person, we are ostensibly ‘healing the world.’
Please join us as we celebrate the healing ministries of Bishop Anderson House.
