Central Presbyterian Member Ruth Koenig featured on KLCC

Greetings friends and neighbors! Many of you probably heard the wonderful piece KLCC produced about Freedom Summer’s 50th anniversary. What you might not know is that one of the voices featured is our very own Ruth Koenig. The short piece is a reminder that this congregation is out in the community working for peace, social justice and inclusion on a daily basis. If you did not get a chance to hear the piece when it aired, you can listen to Ruth’s reflections on Freedom Summer here. Enjoy!
