Although it was the Communal Societies Association Board Meeting that prompted my return to the windy city, it was my renewed acquaintance with Reba Place Fellowship that turned one visit into two. In April, the CSA board met in a conference room at Jesus People USA (hereafter JPUSA), in the Uptown area of Chicago. As it turned out, the former hotel and now residence and nerve center for the JPUSA organization is only some six miles from Reba Place in south Evanston. That made it possible for me to both attend the meeting and reconnect with Reba Place Fellowship, which I initially visited in 1971.
