Those attending the meeting will tour the food bank's facilities and see how the agency serves the needs of the community. Following the tour, dinner will be served in the Conference Room. The cost is $15 per person.

The program will feature a presentation and discussion o­n o­ne of the important issues of both Baptists and Jews: The Light We Shed: Fulfilling the Mission or Purpose of Our Faiths. Alvin Sugarman, rabbi emeritus at The Temple and guest lecturer at the McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University, and Rob Nash, Global Missions Coordinator at the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, will be our keynote speakers. In the discussion, we will deal not o­nly with understanding what 'the light' means for us as Baptists and Jews, but also what 'distracts' from that light and what 'enhances' the light.

2009 Fund for Theological Education (FTE) Calling Congregations Conference

Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, Atlanta

2009 CALLING CONGREGATIONS CONFERENCE SUPPORTS GROWING MOVEMENT TO RAISE FUTURE CHURCH LEADERS 

Registration is open to leaders from denominations, congregations, educational and community

organizations as network convenes in Atlanta for largest ecumenical gathering of the year.

 

ATLANTA – June 1, 2009 – An uncertain economy is fueling concern about almost everything—from unemployment to homelessness to faith in the future. Increasingly, local congregations find themselves at the forefront of caring for individuals, families and entire communities.


In turn, churches are relying o­n competence and compassion from gifted pastors who can lead in both difficult and good times.


People who care about the impact of pastoral leaders and the need to identify talented young people to serve congregations in the future will have an opportunity to make a difference at the 2009 Fund for Theological Education (FTE) Calling Congregations Conference. The open-registration, ecumenical gathering will take place Oct. 8-10 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta.


The conference focuses o­n the role of pastors, educators, church staff and lay leaders in cultivating and supporting young adults with leadership gifts for ministry. Anyone with an interest in developing future church leaders is welcome.  


“Particularly at times such as this, people see how much they need the church—and how much the church needs gifted leaders,” said Melissa Wiginton, FTE Vice President for Ministry Programs and Planning. “They also understand, sometimes painfully, the fragility of some financial and material investments. But we can’t go wrong investing in young people who will become leaders—those who will lead with integrity, love and commitment. Out investment now will yield far-reaching and enduring rewards.” 


Theologian and author Walter Brueggemann, professor emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, is a keynote speaker, together with Judy Fentress Williams, associate professor of Old Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary. Brueggemann is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and a past president of the Society of Biblical Literature, with a special interest in justice issues.  Fentress-Williams’ work celebrates the multiple voices in scripture; she is currently working o­n an Abingdon Old Testament Commentary series.  


FTE’s Calling Congregations initiative seeks to establish a national network of 500 congregations and church-related partners engaged in supporting future pastoral leaders. It offers regional workshops, a national conference, Web-based resources and up to 40 fellowships annually which match a congregation’s financial support toward tuition and expenses for a young church member’s first year of seminary. For more information about the FTE 2009 Calling Congregations Conference, visit www.callingcongregations.org/conference.  


FTE is a leading ecumenical advocate for excellence and diversity in pastoral ministry and theological scholarship. It provides more than $1.5 million annually in fellowships and support to gifted young people from all denominations and racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Sunday, April 26, 2009
7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

First Baptist Church of Christ of Macon
511 High Place
Macon, GA

Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the extraordinary story of a small band of Liberian women who came together in the midst of a bloody civil war, took on the violent warlords and corrupt Charles Taylor regime, and won a long-awaited peace for their shattered country in 2003.

As the rebel noose tightened upon Monrovia, and peace talks faced collapse, the women of Liberia – Christian and Muslims united - formed a thin but unshakable white line between the opposing forces, and successfully demanded an end to the fighting– armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions.

Christian Encounter with World Religions with Thomas Thangaraj

Sandy Springs United Methodist Church, Atlanta

This event is sponsored by Candler School of Theology. Encountering people of other religions, such as Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, has become a matter of daily occurrence both in places of work and in the neighborhoods. How may o­ne relate to people of other religions in a manner that is biblically informed, theologically alert, and guided by the Spirit of Christ? This is the question we will address in the four Wednesday sessions, beginning with a mapping of our context, then examining closely two religions, Hinduism and Islam, and finally articulating a sound and relevent theological position.

The registration fee for this event is $20.00. Checks should be, made out to Emory University and mailed to Office of Church Ministries Education, 1703 Clifton Road, Suite F-2, Atlanta, GA 30329. For more information call 404-727-0714 or email dsasser@emory.edu.

Martha Stearns Marshall Day of Preaching - Celebrating Women Preaching

Baptist Women in Ministry invites all churches to participate in the first annual Martha Stearns Marshall Day of Preaching. o­n the first Sunday of February each year, we will join together to celebrate hearing the voices of women as they preach in pulpits across the United States. As more women enter the ministry, churches have a greater opportunity to welcome them into their pulpits.

The Martha Stearns Marshall Day of Preaching will give churches an opportunity to do so while at the same time educating their congregations about women in ministry. Churches wanting to participate this year o­n February 4, 2007, can do so by inviting a woman from their church staff, their congregation, or their community to preach. Churches might also choose to contact a nearby seminary and invite a female professor or student to preach. In January, participating churches will be able to find a certificate o­n the BWIM website that they can present to their female preachers o­n the Martha Stearns Marshall Day of Preaching.

 

BWIM would like to recognize those churches that choose to participate. Please send your church name and the name of your guest preacher to Ruth Perkins Lee at ruthperkinslee@bellsouth.net or 128 E Glenn Ave, Auburn, AL 36830. All participating churches and preachers will be included in the Spring Issue of Vocare.
