I can’t wait to speak on Healing Our Broken Humanity co-written with Graham Hill in Fort Lauderdale Florida on July 13, 2019.
I will also be preaching at HeartWay Church July 14, 2019. Hope to see you all there.
Many thanks to Pastor Danny Prada and Dr. Liz Rios for the invitation.
The talk is free, but please do register.
Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet, everyone is a theologian. Any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. So we invite you to a EAT. Not only because we actually will be eating but because we believe ‘everyone is a theologian’ and eating together as we theologize is biblical practice.
What will we be discussing?
Based on her book Healing Our Broken Humanity, Dr. Grace will share how in the conflicted times we live in, we each individually and collectively (as churches and organizations) can bring real change to a dehumanized world.
Our newsfeeds are filled with inequality, division, and fear. We want to make a difference and see justice restored because Jesus calls us to be a peacemaking and reconciling people. But how do we do this?
She will offer Christian practices that can bring healing and hope to a broken world by sharing ten ways to transform society, from lament and repentance to relinquishing power, reinforcing agency, and more. Embodying these practices enables us to be the new humanity in Jesus Christ, so the church and world can experience reconciliation, justice, unity, peace, and love.
