Event description

Description

The Issues Forum is a three-day retreat designed to have open and transparent discussion around issues that shape and define the Church of the Nazarene. It includes discussion, Christian fellowship and relaxation.

2018 Forum Theme:
Holiness of Heart and Life: Discerning Christian Action Today

How can we speak of pursuing holiness of heart and life that is grounded in reflection but also leads to concrete action? How can we avoid narrow legalism while also speaking and acting with conviction? How can we embody a communal life that is committed to embrace some things while avoiding others, all for the sake of love? In today’s culture, the Church must re-think and re-articulate its convictions around issues such as alcohol, divorce, income gaps, creation-care, keeping Sabbath, and more. Come and join the conversation.
