PBA Clergy's 1st Annual Missiological Conversation: April 19, 2018
What is the Christian message today
…in a climate in which the lens of our moral compass
may be clouded by the constant rhetoric of intolerance, supremacy, misogyny, and jockeying for the crumbs that fall from the tables of America’s wealthy top 2%? You are invited to the PBA Clergy’s 1st Annual Missiological Conversation.
Our Missiological Conversation begins at 9:00am. Join us at the tables for a time of sharing and fellowship. Church leaders are invited to talk to one another about what we do, why we do it, and how it’s done, in the name of Jesus Christ (mission). Please see the reverse side of this flyer for the program format.
We will have two speakers to help us investigate our concern for the Christian moral compass across the Nation and in Metro-Philadelphia. They will reflect on the theme Her Faith, Her Lens!!
