Brought to You By The Praxis Gathering
The essence of God is love (1 John 4:8). When God’s love was poured into the world it looked like Jesus moving into the Nazareth Neighborhood. God himself lingered for 30 years in a place, showing us that the world is not transformed from lofty stages but from the streets.
The Church is now compelled, not as those fearing, but as those searching how the Kingdom of God is breaking into our particular and peculiar neighborhoods.
This year at the Praxis Gathering we’re submerging into a theology and practice of Loving our Neighborhood. We’ll explore the unique possibilities in the urban, suburban and rural contexts.
Join Don Coleman, Deb Hirsch, Michael Frost, David Fitch and 250 + other missional practitioners September 21-23 to be equipped, nourished and sent back into the world.
