For the Life of the World: Re-framing Our Perspectives
At this gathering we will be sharing stories that reframe our perspectives, not only about ourselves but about the world we are called to engage and serve. Through guests such as Prairie Rose Seminole (Director, ELCA American Indian and Alaska Native Ministries), Pr Albert Ranaivomanana (Director, Betela Seminary), Dr Ray Picket (Rector, PLTS) we’ll be invited to let our existing beliefs be challenged – about money and land, culture and society, values and leadership – so that we may discern how the Spirit is re-forming us to be Christ’s Body for such a time as this.
This fall, conference "missional gatherings" throughout the Rocky Mountain synod will take place under a new name: CONFERENCE BETTER TOGETHER SUMMITS. Bishop Gonia will be present at all 11 Conference gatherings. The focus will be: Money & Church: For the Life of the World. A team of the rostered minister/s and congregational leaders from every congregation will meet together.
PLEASE REGISTER at least 5 days prior to your conference event. Also, download the advance materials using the link to the right.
We confess with our Native sisters and brothers that the whole of Creation is God’s work, that God declares it all as good, and that God’s Spirit dwells within it; and we as the church confess that Jesus Christ became incarnate in human form to show God’s love and mercy to all humanity, in all its variety, and to every race and people on every continent of the earth,
