Woodland is proud to be a sponsor for this year’s conference for the Christian Community Development Association, to be held in Minneapolis September 26-29. Consider attending to learn how to bridge divisions of personality, politics, class, race, culture, nationality, gender and theology!
More from the CCDA web site:
God has initiated salvation and reconciliation for the whole beloved community of creation. Through Jesus, we have been welcomed back into Shalom—right relationship with God, with our true selves and others.
But we, as Christian Community Developers, know that a lot of work still needs to be done! Our world is still separated by walls of “us” vs. “them” and wars waged at every level—from our families to our blocks, to our nations, to all of creation.
The Bible teaches us that we have been given the “ministry of reconciliation” to live out the work God completed through Jesus. We need to first reflect the reality of God’s Shalom, and learn how to bring the people of our world along.
