2021 CCC

Published January 25, 2021 by Brenda Kauffman in Uncategorized

Register here (through January 28) for the 2021 Conference Communications Council. The Zoom event will take place on Saturday, February 6, beginning at 8:30 in the morning. We are excited to welcome guest speaker, Safwat Marzouk, Associate Professor of Old Testament / Hebrew Bible at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. He will share thoughts on “Reading the story of Joseph in an Age of Migration”. Marzouk reflects on his vocation as a professor, “I study, teach and write about the Bible with an emphasis on how the triune God forms a faith community in the world. I believe God is at work forming a community with a dual identity as sojourners and as recipients of the promise of the kingdom of God. This dual identity helps the faith community to be rooted in the world and formed by different ethics. In a world where migration is seen as a challenge, the church should see it as an opportunity not only to show hospitality but also to celebrate difference and claim a biblical perspective on what it means to be the church.” Each congregation is encouraged to send at least two leaders. Additional interested leaders are welcome to attend but must register in order to receive the zoom link.
