Disciples of Christ Regional Assembly

May 16-18, 2014

 

It was my pleasure to represent our congregation in Kennewick, WA. The theme was “Together by Grace”.  We started with a wonderful worship experience with Dr. Michael Kinnamon giving the sermon. The communion table was beautifully arranged with many colorful cups reflecting our diversity within unity.

I attended sessions on the Doctrine of Discovery – exploring our history of relationship with Native Americans and participated in regional groups brainstorming ways to connect to other churches in our region.

Finally, I attended a workshop on transforming congregations.  Our emphasis was in building true community. Regional minister Sandy Messick stated “In all of our regions, the move is away from it being a meeting about doing business, even though there is business to do, and more about deepening relationships. It’s less about hearing reports about what the region is doing for congregations, and more about discovering what congregations can be and are doing together.”
