Kentucky church leaders, both lay and clergy, are warmly invited to the 2013 annual event of the Kentucky Council of Churches, where we will explore the biblical theme, "Instead, speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15). What are the dynamics affecting the ways Christians and citizens express our differences? How have Christians contributed to the problems? What different way are we called to show?
Please save these dates: October 24-25, 2013, and plan to be present at Kentucky Dam Park in western Kentucky's Gilbertsville. This is a beautiful site situated on an enormous lake.
Our keynote speakers will be KET's Renee Shaw, and professor Kathryn Johnson of Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. Our workshops will cover a range of important topics such as skills for dialogue, ecumenical dialogue, conversations with Muslims, the role of social media, the experience of "The Moral Side of the News," and the restorative justice movement's use of dialogue in situations between victims and offenders. Our worship will feature leaders who serve Western Kentucky churches. A flier is available to download here.
Registration begins on Monday July 15th!
