Event looks at church’s role
in politically, racially divided nation

 
Editor’s note: An incorrect date for this event was listed in last week’s GPconnect.
 
Each fall, the Great Plains Mercy & Justice Team invites you to a day of engaging with different issues to better equip us as Christ’s followers to transform the world.
 
This year’s event, “For the Transformation of the World – The role of the church in a politically/racially divided nation,” is from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at Saint Mark United Methodist Church, 1525 N. Lorraine Ave., Wichita.
 
The featured speaker will be Jim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners in Washington D.C., a non-profit faith-based organization, network and movement whose mission statement calls for “putting faith into action for social justice.” Wallis is also a best-selling author, public theologian, national preacher, social activist and international commentator on ethics and public life. Books by Wallis include “America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America,” “The (Un)common Good,” “God’s Politics” and “The Great Awakening.”
 
The event is free, but registration is requested.
