How Your Congregation Can Engage in Fearless Dialogue

Preaching is a dialogue between the preacher and the congregation. What opportunities arise when we all - lay people & clergy - are willing to be a little fearless? The New Mexico Conference of Churches and the Ecumenical Institute for Ministry invite you to discus this central aspect of congregational life at a conference on Saturday, April 18, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 5415  Fortuna Rd. NW, Albuquerque (map). The conference is part of the NMCC's Congregational Vitality Series.

Rev. Dr. Robin Meyers, author of Spiritual Defiance: Building a Beloved Community of Resistance, and The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus, will lead the discussion. Get Tickets ($35, including lunch)

Rev. Meyers is senior minister of Mayflower Congregational UCC Church, in Oklahoma City, and professor of social justice in the Philosophy Department, Oklahoma City University. He is a peace activist and the best-selling author of six books. Check out the video of one of his sermons just below this poster.

I wonder if there is any sponsorship for those people who do not have $35 to attend?
