National Council of Churches Announces Theme for Annual Christian Unity Gathering
Oct 12, 2020 - Oct 13, 2020
The National Council of Churches (NCC) Christian Unity Gathering is going virtual this year. Join them online October 12 – 13, 2020. This year’s theme is Breathing New Life Into Our Nation: Repentance, Re-Formation, Reparation.
As racial injustices plague the country, the novel coronavirus pandemic rages nearly unchecked, and an economic crisis plunges millions into poverty, we find ourselves at a point from which we can fall into an abyss of further division, destitution, and despair, or from which we can move back from the brink, by faith, to a place of justice, restored hope and healing. In the midst of these simultaneous crises, and as we celebrate NCC’s 70 years of public witness in the fight for justice, the NCC invites you to join them online as they explore what churches must do to turn back the tide of chaos and embrace Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of the Beloved Community.
