Public Christianity: Is there any other kind? (2010)

Jesus is Lord, and Caesar isn’t! Since Jesus is Lord of all, the gospel requires that together we take action to resist “the ways of the world” by promoting ways of living that evidence Jesus’ lordship. This is not something we can do alone; nor are we expected to. Christ-like living and work in the world cannot be undertaken apart from the body of Christ. Local congregations are the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. Through them he continues to take action.

Plenary sessions by Andrew Bradstock, Jonathan Boston, Chris Marshall and Ruby Duncan. In addition, others engaged in public Christian practice will provide workshops on a range of local and global considerations, possibilities, opportunities, and challenges. Also, there will be a facilitated panel discussion with “from the floor” participation – your input is welcomed.

Date and time: 6:30pm to 8:45pm Friday 27 and 9:30am to 4pm Saturday 28 August 2010.
Venue: LifePoint Church, 61 Hopper Street, Mt Cook, Wellington

A grassroots event sponsored by: Wellington Theological Consortium, University of Otago’s Centre for Theology and Public Issues, Peoples Coffee, Urban Vision and LifePoint.
