We are launching The Reality Forum! We hope to be more intentional about sharing the “why” under the “what” of the ministry. One way of doing that is to set aside a day for worship, proclamation and small group sharing—and of course eating together!
The organizing team has produced the following vision and outline for the Forum. We hope you'll join us!
The Reality Forum - January 20, 2018
Drawing on biblical theology and daily experience, The Reality Forum explores the ramifications of God’s unique revelation in Jesus Christ. We will unpack the idea of one common humanity created in Christ and rooted in the love of the Holy Trinity. Together we will consider how this dynamic understanding of the reality of God’s grace influences how we view ourselves, our neighbors, and every single person: “From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view” (2 Cor 5:16).
The Forum will feature a mixture of presentations, breakout sessions and shared meals, providing learning opportunities for all levels of interest.
