On Saturday 16th November Michael Hardin from Preaching Peace and writer of ‘The Jesus Driven Life’ will be running a days seminar on ‘Nonviolence and the Mission of God’ at Barton Baptist Church, Barton, TQ2 8EU.What does it mean for the Church to be a people of peace? How can we preach peace to those who are far off? How do we walk faithfully in the footsteps of the One who was crucified and raised to life? The day will consist of exploring questions such as these and how nonviolence and this path of discipleship can impact the mission of the church in the communities that we live and serve.
The day will run from 9am-3pm and
will include teaching, conversation and discussion. It promises to be a day of challenge and inspiration.
Tea and coffee will be provided, but please can you bring a packed lunch with you.
The day is free of charge, so we simply ask for a donation on the day towards the ministry and work of Michael. At the end of this is a short bio of Michael.To book a place or for any more info give me a ring on 01626 680944 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
