Next week I am participating in the West Coast Worship Conference, February 2-4, 2012. WCWC is hosted by the Adventist Media Center in Simi Valley, California, and sponsored by the North American Division Church Resource Center, and the West Region of the Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. There’s a good line up of keynote speakers and presenters, with people like Doug Paggitt, Samir Selmanovic, and even Dan Jackson, the President of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.
My workshop’s title is “The Church and the Community”, where I will tackle the challenge of being Jesus Christ’s presence in the world around us. We will explore the church’s activism and ministry in the community through theological reflection and cultural discernment, ending with some concrete and practical ways we can join God in his mission in the world, with special focus on the challenges of doing this in Suburbia. I’ll repeat the workshop twice on Friday, February 3, at 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM. Hope to see you there if you can make it out.
