The Assembly theme rests on the Disciples new "mantra" -- A Movement of Wholeness in a Fragmented World." We're not perfect agents or messengers, but this is our calling, to live out God's vision of wholeness in a very fragmented and broken world. It is a powerful calling, one that will certainly struggle with in implementation, but still a most powerful invitation to move into the future. My expectation is that we'll continue the conversation -- in worship and in prayer, service and in study.
For more details I'll send you to the reporting from Disciples World's Sherri Emmons.
Oh, and the house band she speaks of in the piece -- a great group of musicians led by an ever energetic Bill Thomas of Van Nuys.
