FALL CONFERENCE 2018

 How marvelous it is that through Christ Jesus, God is reconciling all ethnos to himself and one another. Our diversity presents many opportunities and challenges as we discover unity within our diversity. In a world filled with division, hostility, isolation, fragmentation, and dehumanizing cultural systems, the Spirit-formed Gospel community is a beacon of hope. My prayer is that together we will discover and embody our identity as   One New Humanity  , reconciled to one another through God and for the world.
