Mission u 2021
July 29 - August 1
We have known and felt what it is like when “things are falling apart on us.” We have experienced a great unraveling that has shifted, quite literally, everything.
Could there be, as 2 Corinthians put it, “far more here than meets the eye”?
Mission u, like many activities in our lives, has moved online. While virtual, we are still creating spaces for spiritual community, lifelong friendships, lessons that change us and our communities, and spiritual practices that arrive when we need them most. In a time when it looks like things are falling apart on us, God’s grace is still unfolding and life is being made new.
Indeed: There’s far more here than meets the eye. Will you join us?
At our upcoming Mission u, we will examine anxiety, the culture of violence that impacts children in and out of schools, and how we as God’s people can deepen our moral witness and respond faithfully.
Our 2021 Mission u in the Pacific Northwest Conference will offer the following studies Thursday through Saturday, July 29-31, online via Zoom:
