A Conversation on Future Faith

Sojourners will be hosting a conversation at the end of next week, Friday at 11:30-1:00 on April 20th,   on Wes Granberg-Michaelson new book, Future Faith. The book explores the winds of change blowing through American Christianity, offering suggestions and challenges for the American church as the Christian faith becomes increasingly global and diverse. Wes’ perspective on these issues, and how the church can respond to the demands of the 21stcentury, is especially poignant and insightful for all who see the importance of the role for the churches—especially at a time like this.

The event, held at Sojourners’ offices (408 C ST NE) on Friday, April 20th, from 11:30am-1:00pm, will feature a panel discussion with several prominent international church leaders. Hana Kim, pastor of Myungsung Presbyterian Church in Seoul, South Korea, and Casely Essamuah, Secretary of the Global Christian Forum, will feature on the panel alongside Wes and myself. Adelle Banks, reporter for Religion News Service, will be moderating the conversation.

We are looking forward to this event as a thoughtful and important discussion of issues faced by the American church, and would be honored for you to join us in this conversation. Lunch will be provided, and you will receive a copy ofFuture Faith to take home.

For more details and to RSVP, please go here. Please feel free to forward the invitation to anyone you think would be interested in this conversation.
