SURRENDER:15 Adelaide - Making Things Right
Our theme this year is Making Things Right. The hurt, pain, poverty and sin we see all around us in our world stems from our broken relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the earth and is expressed spiritually, socially, mentally, emotionally, economically and in the earth itself. Our communities desperately need to see things made right in all these relationships! Jesus comes to see us reconciled to God, reconciled within ourselves, reconciled to our human family and reconciled to the earth he created. He calls us to follow Him in this as we enter into His kingdom and join Him in Making Things Right.
We’ll explore together God’s purpose for us as agents of reconciliation in a broken world. How can we as the church and as individuals find our identity as peacemakers and restorers of broken relationships?
