2019 Assembly Theme

2019 Assembly Theme

by Sr. Liz Colver
As creation – world, church, and humanity – yearns for ways to cross divides, our community celebrates our connectedness both to one another and to the shared work of diakonia in our contexts.

While we strive to be connected to community with intention, we also attempt to be connected with God and creation, as co-creators of the kin-dom of God.

No matter what we do, or where we are, we are inextricably connected to our world, to our faith, and to one another as community.

Thus this year’s theme: INEXTRICABLY CONNECTED.

Guiding us along the way is our scripture Hebrews 10:24-25: “And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Our speaker is Dr. Cynthia Moe-Lobeda, author and professor of Theological and Social Ethics, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley Calif.

Dr. Moe-Lobeda is an expert on moving theology from thinking to action. She will accompany us as we attempt to notice the ways we are inextricably connected to all parts of creation, which have been rendered powerless.

She will walk with us as we consider what actions we can take as womxn of God to transform our global connectedness from marginalizing creation and peoples to reconciliation and action toward justice.

More information and opportunities will be shared in the coming days. Please remember to look for information in these newsletters, the Facebook page, and your mail!
