LOI is pleased to announce details of this year’s North American regional consultation, scheduled for 5-7 June at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Theological Seminary, Brookline, MA. The theme is ‘Discipleship and Spiritual Formation’, following on from the upcoming CWME gathering in Tanzania. Sessions will explore how our respective traditions form disciples, what resources each has to draw on in this task, and what discipleship means in particular contexts. Confirmed speakers include Archbishop Angaelos (Coptic Orthodox Church), Dr Joshua Bogunjoko (SIM-USA), Dr Gordon T. Smith (Ambrose University), and Fr Luke Veronis (Holy Cross). We are inviting mission practitioners, church leaders, and theologians from Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, and Evangelical traditions. If you are based in North America and would like to register your interest in attending, e-mail Tim Grass, the facilitator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jim Stamoolis, the Consultation Co-ordinator, at email@example.com.
From the end of January, we plan to issue an electronic newsletter twice a year; please let the facilitator know if you would like to be placed on the mailing list.
Please pray for us!
