Have you wanted to attend the Church of the Brethren's annual Intercultural Consultation and Celebration but are not able to make the trip? There's no need to miss it: join online!
In partnership with Bethany Theological Seminary, the 12th Intercultural Consultation and Celebration from April 22-24 will once again be webcast live. Webcasts begin today at 6:30 p.m. (eastern time).
This event is open to all church members and provides a time of fellowship with participants from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, support for intercultural ministry and mission, and an educational opportunity to build up intercultural efforts in church communities.
With a theme of "Celebrating Diversity in Harmony" based on Romans 12:15-17, highlights of this year's schedule include:
- This evening's opening worship service featuring Richard Zapata and Samuel Sarpiya.
- Friday and Saturday’s education sessions, a main session on "Diversity in Harmony" led by Barbara Daté, and additional workshops on coaching and mentoring and listening skills.
- Friday evening worship featuring Leah Hileman and Ray Hileman, and presentation of the third Revelation 7:9 Diversity Award.
- Saturday evening's closing, a musical worship service led by Don Mitchell with attendees celebrating and sharing their cultural backgrounds in song and appearance.
