Mennonite Brethren from across Canada will gather on October 27–29, 2011, at Kitchener (Ont.) MB Church to engage in theological reflection around The Mystery of the Cross.
Rooted in God’s Word and our shared Confession of Faith, sessions will practically address what it means for Mennonite Brethren to affirm Christ as the centre of their being and their mission. Together, Study Conference attendees will explore God’s love and grace, our sin and God’s response to it, and how Christ fulfilled all the shades of atonement.
The Board of Faith and Life reading list for The Mystery of the Cross study conference in Kitchener Waterloo, Ont., Oct. 27–29.
