No Longer Strangers

**** Registration is still open… ****
**** Friday evening’s session is free and open to the public.
Come and bring a friend!  ****

Immigration is one of today’s most pressing issues, one on which there is much fear, misunderstanding and tension. We believe that in the church community – where, despite our ethnic heritages, we are brothers and sisters – we can begin to untangle the misunderstandings and seek justice and reconciliation together.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation – in English and Spanish – on the church and immigration.

Main Speaker:
Daniel Carroll Rodas, Author of: Christians At the Border

When: Friday evening April 8 and Saturday April 9, 2011

Where: Englewood Christian Church / Indianapolis

A    Rooted People - Conference

**** WEBSITE UPDATED THIS WEEK WITH
THE MAIN  SPEAKERS’ TOPICS !!!  *****

A Rooted People:
Church, Place and Agriculture
in an Urban World

Registration and more info: http://englewoodcc.com/rooted/

Ours is a world in which transportation is becoming extremely costly (as was highlighted by the massive costs of the BP Oil Spill) and yet at the same time is a world that is becoming increasingly urban. Common sense would seem to indicate that these trends will impact in a major way our food systems and the way we eat. Given these factors, what is the church’s redemptive role in caring for the health and wholeness (shalom) of not just humanity, but all creation? Englewood Christian Church has invited several speakers with rich experiences in sustainable agriculture to lead a conversation reflecting on this question and related ones about church, place, food, community and agriculture, and we invite you to join us.

Speakers:
* Fred Bahnson: Writer and Co-founder of Anathoth Community Garden
* Martin Price:
Former Director of Educational Concerns For Hunger Organization (ECHO)

* Ragan Sutterfield:
Arkansas Farmer/Writer, Author of FARMING AS A SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE

Workshops Lead By : Main speakers and others TBA

When: Friday Oct. 29 and Saturday Oct. 30, 2010
