16 Buckley Crist (left), St.Johns Evangelical Lutheran

The members and friends of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Wilmette are very pleased to present Mr. Buckley and Mrs. Susan Crist as our 2017 Vision Keepers.

Susan and Buck’s contributions to the life and vitality of our church and community include gardening and landscaping; working with Family Promise Chicago North Shore to help families in transition between housing; visiting and assisting the sick and homebound; tutoring struggling students; and much, much more.

In the book of the prophet Micah, God’s people are reminded that theirs is to “Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.” Buck and Susan Crist not only share this vision with us; they live it out daily with humility and grace. We are proud to have them as part of our community and church family.

Congratulations, Buck and Susan!
