Banquet Speaker—Saturday, November 4, 2017 (1.0 CE)

Rev. Bill Stanfield

“It’s All a Part of the Same Story: How Building Communities from the Inside Out Begins within Each of Us and Extends Outward”

Abstract: One does not have to have worked in distressed communities for long to recognize that the desire to advocate for peace, justice and reconciliation does not necessarily lead to more peace, justice and reconciliation. Often our advocacy leaves us angry, agitated and disconnected from those we sought to serve. The antidote to such feelings can be found in how we approach our relationships with God and one another as we engage to do the work of God’s beloved community.
