How to Take a Stand on Shifting Social Issues Based on the Sure Foundation of Scripture
This is a three-hour workshop on the “how-to” of developing personal convictions and group positions on controversial issues.
How do we reconcile scientific evidence and Bible truth?
How do we embody compassion and understanding?
How do we use the Bible as our guide?
How do we preserve our unity when others are dividing?
Saturday, March 21, 2020
9:00 a.m. to Noon
Rhodes Grove Camp and Conference Center
7693 Brown’s Mill Road
Our facilitators include . . .
- Dr. Luke Fetters, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty, Huntington University, Huntington, Indiana
- Joni Michaud, Attorney, Michigan
- Dr, Anthony L. Blair, President, Evangelical Seminary, Meyerstown, Pennsylvania
These facilitators were members of a task force that studied contemporary controversies and then put forward six written proposals on “Singleness,” “Marriage,”
“Pornography,” “Illicit Sexual Relations,” “Sex and Gender Distinctions,” and “The Local Congregation and Human Sexuality.” At a time when many Christian groups are fracturing over such issues, these six proposals were each adopted with a unanimous vote, strengthening the unity of the denomination. In this workshop, the focus is not on that particular denomination, nor on those specific issues, nor on any specific positions. The thrust of this workshop is on the process of developing group consensus on controversial issues in a way that keeps us faithful to Scripture and strengthens our unity.
Hear an academic dean, a Christian attorney, and a seminary resident share their experience of leading their denomination through such controversies in a way that resulted in a business session that ended with a spontaneous standing ovation.
This three-hour workshop is free of charge, but seating is limited, and registration is required.
