Soaring in the Spirit

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Is. 40:31, NIV)

I hope you can join me on Saturday, August 28 at 2 p.m. for the Baptist Peace Fellowship’s (BPFNA) International Summer Conference. You can register for the conference here. I have purchased a Watch Pass so the event is free for all Lakeshorians. Send me an email for the passcode.

In addition to highlighting Lakeshore’s work as a Sanctuary Congregation, BPFNA’s summer programming has featured a rich array of peace and justice ministries from a movie on the evils of the Doctrine of Discovery to Storytelling among Resistance Movements to Ethical Chocolate to the African Diaspora in the Americans to Migration with Dignity to the Pedagogy of Jesus – and these were just the sessions I was able to listen in on.

This Virtual Summer Conference is a great way to worship God and participate in the justice-loving work of God’s Spirit thought out the Americas. The keynote speaker will be Rev. Douglas Avilesbernal, the Executive Minister of Evergreen Baptist Association, of which Lakeshore is a member congregation. The fellowship, worship and preaching will be well worth your time. Join us on August 28!
