Join Dr. Ralph Korner at the 2019 Hiller Lectureship as he shares his perspective on how the book of Revelation speaks to living life today. He'll inspire us to think about what it means to be church in a way that an abundant community of life can grow—both among the church and the neighborhoods in which the church’s people live and work. Discussion will focus on how to facilitate Kingdom-minded church life that finds its mission in a “come to” and “go to” model as well as the impact of releasing church members into missional relationships with those in their immediate neighborhoods (and not just the neighborhood where the physical building is located).

Books Informing the Lectureship:
--The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods
by John McKnight and Peter Block

--An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture
by Peter Block, Walter Brueggemann, and John McKnight

Sessions:
--Keeping Jesus’ return imminent: playing with visionary building blocks (chapters 1, 6, 22)
--Keeping God’s people hospitably present to each other (chapters 21-22)
--Keeping God’s people missionally integrated within their neighborhoods (chapters 2-3)
--Bringing it all together: learnings, applications, and questions
