What is this weekend about?
This conference is designed to engage the wider Austin community around the issues that often divide us, such as race, class, socio-economic status, and politics. This conference will equip us to understand how the gospel should propel us outward towards “the other” in love, service, and evangelism. Our time together will provoke us to seek answers to questions like:
- What barriers prevent us from being outward faced?
- What barriers prevent us from reaching out to others that are different from us?
- How does the gospel compel us to break down the lines that divide us from others?
- How should our relationship with God transform us to love others?
- How much should the church look like the community around it? If that should require change, how can we accomplish that in a natural, gospel centered way?
Sponsored by Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Austin and Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, Cedar Park.
