“A People for God’s Name” Believing and Belonging in Luke-Acts @ Christ Lutheran Church
Apr 21 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
You are invited to join the Western ND Synod GIFTS Committee and Rev. Dr. Eric Barreto for a day exploring diversity through the books of Luke and Acts.
Survey after survey demonstrates that ethnic diversity is only increasing in recent days and yet many of our churches remain culturally homogeneous. What might a church that invites diversity look like? We will turn to the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles to wonder together how God’s gift of diversity might take root in our lives together. Too ofter, our tendency has been to imagine that our faith “solves” the “problems” of diversity by making us all one, the same. In contrast, the author of Luke-Acts views our differences as a gift to be treasured not a difficulty to be overcome.
