Theme: "Vital Conversations: Building Beloved Community"
Guiding scripture: Acts 2:42-47 Common English Bible (CEB)
Community of believers
42 The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. 43 A sense of awe came over everyone. God performed many wonders and signs through the apostles. 44 All the believers were united and shared everything. 45 They would sell pieces of property and possessions and distribute the proceeds to everyone who needed them. 46 Every day, they met together in the temple and ate in their homes. They shared food with gladness and simplicity. 47 They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.
Also guiding us this Annual Conference is the General Commission on Religion and Race’s list of “25 Traits of The Beloved Community” based on the beloved community envisioned by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
