Celebration Special Sessions

January 31, 2008

This afternoon there were several special interest sessions at the Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant. These are designed to offer individuals a chance to discuss important issues and have some dialogue that will hopefully lead to improved ministry and relationships. The Celebration's website has articles about several of them today. My article is about the session on "Youth at a Crossroads." Here are the other sessions that were reported on:

The HIV/AIDS Pandemic
Responding to Natural Disasters
Race as a Continuing Challenge
Breaking Cycles of Poverty
Faith and Public Policy
Reaching out to the Sick
The Spirit of the Lord Upon Me
Welcoming a Stranger
Engaging the Criminal Justice System
Religious Liberty and Separation of Church and State
Sexual Exploitation
Can We All Get Along? Finding Common Ground with Other Faiths
Prophetic Preaching

Hopefully, these sessions will spark further dialogue and action on these critical issues.
