Sunday, September 16, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
MPUC has supported Presbyterian mission workers Tyler and Rochelle Holm in Malawi for three years. On Sunday, September 16, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., we host Reverend Tyler Holm at Macalester-Plymouth for a gathering and conversation.
Refreshments will be served at 3:00, followed by a facilitated theological conversation about mission, rooted in Tyler’s experience in Malawi. We will ask questions such as “What does ‘mission’ mean to us today?” “What is the relationship between mission and social justice?” “How does mission become mutual?”
The single biggest obstacle to the church’s mission and vision of peace and justice is the fact of segregation of the poor/oppressed/exploited/neglected from those who are comfortable, secure and satisfied. Regardless of what else we do, we must stay connected in some kind of face-to-face way with persons and places at risk. (Jack Jazreel, founder of JustFaith Ministries)
We are excited about this opportunity to share and explore our understanding of mission with each other and with Rev. Holm. All in the MPUC community are invited-please come!
Don Christensen and Jim Lundy, Mission and Social Justice Committee, and Rev. Adam Blons
