Think Again

This last year has been a cataclysm for the familiar way of doing church.

But the early Jesus movement–especially as recorded in the Book of Acts–thrived in a time of immense change and uncertainty. One could argue most of the New Testament is an explosion of new reflection among a religious community on how to “think again” about their faith: the core of what God has always called them to do, how to continue without the old temple model, how to enter a broader vision of God’s work with different people groups they’d always avoided.

Some of you are weary. Trying to prop up, or maintain, old models of what a Presbyterian church looked like for past generations, is not the call of Christ.

This VERGE in October, we are taking this moment in Northwest Coast Presbytery’s history seriously: how can we “think again” about who God in Christ has called us to be in our neighborhoods?

We have invited five speakers to guide us through the hard–and exciting–questions Christians are facing in America today. If there was ever a time to come to VERGE, and to bring as many of your congregants as you can, this Fall is it.
