Illinois Mennonite Historical & Genealogical Society Fall Program

Oct 20, 2012 at 10:00 AM

From: The Illinois Mennonite Historical & Genealogical Society

 

Spring Program to Feature Dr. Junius P. Rodriguez: “The Underground Railroad in Illinois”

Illinois Mennonite Heritage Center • 675 State Route 116, Metamora, Illinois 61548

Ph. 309-367-2551 • E-Mail: imhc@mtco.com • Saturday October 20th, 2012, 10:00 a.m.

 

The IMHGS 2012 Fall Program will be held on Saturday, October 20, beginning at 10:00 a.m. We are pleased this year to welcome as our speaker Dr. Junius P. Rodriguez. He will speak on the Underground Railroad in Illinois. 

 

The Underground Railroad consisted of meeting points, secret routes, transportation, safe houses & assistance provided by abolitionist sympathizers. Illinois became a free state in the Union in 1818, neighboring the slave-holding states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas & Missouri. Ohio, Indiana & Illinois had the most active lines in the Underground Railroad.  

 

Dr. Rodriguez is a professor of history at Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois. He specializes in African American history and has done extensive research on slave revolts. His academic focus has covered the history of slavery, slave resistance, and abolitionism; the history of the Louisiana Purchase; and more recently, the history of Eureka College and the early history of Ronald Reagan.

 

Born and raised in Louisiana, Dr. Rodriguez earned a B.A. from Nicholls State University in 1979. He taught in the public school system of Lafourche Parish, Louisiana for nearly a decade. He received an M.A. from Louisiana State University in 1987 and a Ph.D. from Auburn University in 1992. 

 

Dr. Rodriguez’ seven award-winning publications include The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery (General Editor), 2 vols., 1997, Chronology of World Slavery, 1999, Slavery in the United States: A Social, Political, and Historical Encyclopedia, 2 vols., 2007, Encyclopedia of Emancipation and Abolition in the Transatlantic World, 3 vols., 2007, and Slavery in the Modern World: A History of Political, Social, and Economic Oppression, 2011.  He served as consultant to MPH Entertainment in the development of the documentary Human Bondage, which first appeared on History Channel’s series History’s Mysteries in 2000.

 

His public lectures include “Liberty Lines: The Underground Railroad in Central Illinois” (Alliance Library System, 2007); “The Cosmology of Race: Looking upon the Heavens as Symbol and Metaphor in the African American Experience” (Bradley University, Peoria, IL, 2002); and “Christian Ethics and the Enigma of Slavery” (University of Pennsylvania, 1998). In 2007 he was keynote speaker at Fort Leonard Wood in MO, welcoming the 5th Engineering Battalion back from its second tour of duty in Iraq, and he gave the Founder’s Day address at the Eureka College Sesquicentennial in 2005.  His awards include the W.C. Bradley Award for Student Achievement in the Humanities (Auburn University), and the Helen Cleaver Distinguished Teaching Award (Eureka College). 

 

Dr. Rodriguez is currently president of the boards of Heartline and Heart House in Eureka, as well as the Eureka Area United Fund.

 

The IMHGS Fall Program is open to the public as well as to members.  It will be prefaced by the annual IMHGS business meeting and followed by a lunch provided by the Heritage Center. The meal is free;   donations will be accepted.

 

The Illinois Mennonite Heritage Center is open April through October, Fridays & Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm & Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Tours, $2 for adults, include the Sutter barn (livestock) & agricultural (machinery) museums, the prairie plot with native Illinois trees & grasses, museum of household & church artifacts, a library of Anabaptist history & genealogy, & archival holdings.

Fall Fundraising Banquet - Spoon River Pregnancy Resource Center

Oct 23, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Spoon River Pregnancy Resource Center's banquet will be held on Tuesday, October 23th at the Evangelical Free Church in Canton. The night will include a silent auction, a dinner, and a presentation from our center's staff.Plate's are $15 a person, catered by Raber's of Peoria.

We are very excited about this year’s theme “Go Mobile.” We look forward to sharing with our guests how the Lord has laid it on our hearts to get a mobile sonogram unit on the road. A mobile unit has huge potential for us to reach out to surrounding towns in our rural area. Another Central Illinois pregnancy center’s mobile unit saves an average of two babies a day when it’s on the road. It would be a beautiful thing if we could gather the resources to save lives like that!

A mobile sonogram unit may seem like an unattainable goal, but we have a God for which nothing is unattainable! He has already laid the ground work to make it possible for our dream to become a reality. We are asking that you prayerfully consider stepping out in faith with us by pledging your support.

Free Movie - "Christmas with a Capital C"

Oct 24, 2012 at 7:15 AM

Christmas with a Capital C

www.MenofAIM.org/movies/chilli

Men of AIM welcomes the community to view "Christmas with a Capital C" starring Ted McGinley, Brad Stine, Nancy Stafford, and Daniel Baldwin.

This free showing is open to the first 150 people (size of theater) and doors will open when the theater is cleaned from the earlier matineee (expected about 3:45-4pm).

No offering will be taken, but donations will be accepted towards future Christian film efforts in Chillicothe.

Christian DVD's will be available for purchase as well as tickets to see Christian Comedian Brad Stine when he comes to Peoria in March 2013.

 

ABOUT THE FILM:

Christmas has always been a time of love and tradition in small town Trapper Falls; hometown of Mayor Dan Reed (Ted McGinley). With his brother Greg (Brad Stine), they drape the town in Christmas cheer concentrating on the nativity scene. When Dan’s high school rival Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin) returns home after 20 years, he takes offense in seeing the town’s nativity scene in violation of separation of church and state.

Mitch wants the nativity scene removed and the word Christmas switched to Happy Holidays. Dan’s wife Kristen (Nancy Stafford) and their daughters show the true meaning of Christmas by launching a “Christmas with a Capital C” campaign as an effort to keep the town together. Trapper Falls learns the lesson that with the arrival of Christmas, good will was to be given to all; even those whose heart seem closed to Him.
