Within the past few weeks, several new events have been added to the Council schedule that may not have been offered when you registered:
- Never Been to Council? Come Here!—Tuesday, May 30, 4:15–5:15 p.m.
C&MA leaders help you to find your way around the event and to figure out how you can be an active participant. (Previously known as the New Delegate Orientation)
- An Honest Conversation About How the Church Should Address Diversity, Privilege, and the Invisible Walls that Affect African-Americans—Thursday, June 1, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Is the evangelical church (and the C&MA) guilty of the same kinds of discrimination and racism that have been common in America from the country’s beginning? Does “white privilege” exist within the Church in America? Have we allowed our personal relationships with Christ to excuse us from speaking out against the obvious injustices directed corporately against people of color? Join Dr. Ron Morrison, Alliance pastor and former chairman of the C&MA Board of Directors, as he leads a Christ-honoring conversation designed to promote healing in His Body.
- What I’ve Learned from a Talking Tomato—Tuesday, May 30, 4:15–5:15 p.m.
VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer looks back at 25 years of creative mayhem to draw lessons about ministering to kids and grown-ups alike in an increasingly media-drenched, post-Christian culture.
- An Unforeseen Journey—Friday, June 2, 11 a.m.–12 p.m.
Sarah Shust, wife of worship leader Aaron Shust, draws from personal experience and the life of Hagar to reflect on God’s nearness during the unexpected turns of life that often leave us feeling rejected and alone.
