The world seems to be coming apart at the seams. Supreme Court nominees demur when asked to define "woman." Daily life is drastically disrupted by government attempts to control a virus. Two large European countries are at war.
Many Christians despair. Others flee to safe spaces to wait for Jesus to come.
Worlds die. Ours may be dying.
But it's not a moment for despair or retreat. It's a time for hopeful action. When everything unravels, God calls the church to minister to the dying and to rebuild the ruins.
In this weekend conference, Peter J. Leithart, President of the Theopolis Institute, will explain how the church can meet the challenges of our time.
We have all we need. The church needs to take hold of the gifts of the Spirit that unite us to Christ and His mission - immersion in the Word of God, regular celebration at the Lord's table, Psalm-singing, prayer, service to the helpless.
Centered on the Word and table, the church becomes more and more what it is - an outpost of the heavenly city of God, sent to renew the cities of men.
