  • Downers Grove Family Celebrates 5th Birthday While Raising Money and Awareness for Apraxia Oct 15, 2014 4:43 PM
    Three years ago, Nevaeh was diagnosed with a neurological speech disorder called apraxia, something her mother, Nichole Latori, nor grandmother, Terri Murrin had never heard of. After spending the past three years researching the disorder and finding the best treatment for Nevaeh, Terri and Nichole decided to change this lack of awareness. On September 12th and 13th they hosted an Apraxia Fund Raiser Yard Sale. They filled Terri’s garage, front yard and 5 tents with items donated for sale. Every person who came to the sale was given information about Childhood Apraxia of Speech is very challenging and complicated neurological speech disorder in children. This little known disorder makes it difficult or impossible for children to accurately produce sounds, syllables, and/or words despite having a good understanding of language. The family raised $1,902.00 and a family member’s company will be matching that amount. A total of $3,804.00 will be donated to the Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech on Saturday, October 18th which also happens to be Nevaeh’s 5th birthday. The Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech is held across the country as a means to heighten awareness and funding. Proceeds from the walk will benefit the local apraxia programs through The Apraxia Connection and national programs and research of the Childhood Apraxia of Spreech Association of North America (CASANA).

  • Author Andy Crouch to Speak on “Redeeming the Gift of Power” at Wheaton College October 15 Oct 13, 2014 5:04 PM
    Writer, editor and producer Andy Crouch will speak on the topic of “Redeeming the Gift of Power” at Wheaton College at 7 p.m. October 15. Crouch, author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (InterVarsity Press 2008) and Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power (InterVarsity Press 2014), is the executive editor of Christianity Today magazine. “I aim to start a hopeful and honest conversation about power—the power we have, the power students acquire through a college education, and the ways power has been distorted through privilege and status,” Crouch says. “I’m excited to share the ways thinking about the image of God as a central theological theme has helped me see how culture, power and other similarly big themes come together in a deep and generative biblical narrative.” “As someone who has been an important voice in evangelicalism for many years, Andy Crouch is really an ideal person to speak to our community at a time when there is a lot changing about what it means to be an evangelical in the United States,” says anthropology professor Dr. Brian Howell. “He is a very astute observer of cultural life, and an excellent communicator who can translate difficult ideas into very accessible forms.” The lecture is free and open to the public. Crouch’s lecture, which is co-sponsored by Wheaton’s Department of Sociology & Anthropology, the Center for Applied Christian Ethics, and Opus: The Art of Work, is part of this year’s Ivan Fahs Memorial Symposium. The Ivan Fahs Memorial Symposium, held in memory of longtime Wheaton sociology professor Ivan Fahs, takes place each fall and consists of a lecture and chapel message given by notable sociologists or anthropologists. Past symposia can be viewed here. This event will be held in Barrows Auditorium in the east wing of the Billy Graham Center, which is located at 500 College Avenue in Wheaton. For more information, contact the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at 630.752.5036. Wheaton College (Wheaton, Ill.) is a coeducational Christian liberal arts college noted for its rigorous academics, integration of faith and learning, and consistent ranking among the top liberal arts colleges in the country.
