Andrews University Agenda http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/ News and Events at Andrews University en-us Copyright 2018, Andrews University Thu, 20 Sep 2018 05:11:00 -0000 Thu, 20 Sep 2018 05:11:00 -0000 webmaster@andrews.edu webmaster@andrews.edu The Colossian Forum: Politics Public Forum http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/50847 <p> Students and faculty are invited to attend The Colossian Forum&rsquo;s Politics Public Forum, &quot;<strong>Political Division: Moving Toward Hope</strong>,&quot; which will be held in Holland, Michigan, on Friday evening, Sept. 21, 2018. The event is free (including transportation and registration), but you need to register for the event and reserve your seat on the bus.</p> <p> The Colossian Forum exists to answer the question, &ldquo;<em>How do we live faithfully in cultural conflicts?</em>&rdquo; Recent political divisions in the United States have caused significant strife among members of the church. &ldquo;<em>The Colossian Forum turns these hot-button issues into opportunities for lifelong discipleship and intergenerational witness. Christians who disagree are invited into the reconciling presence of Christ. They listen to one another, fiercely holding to their own convictions. Everyone holds truth and love together without compromise. A surprising thing happens when Christians put Christ at the center of their conversation&mdash;we become a community that behaves like Christ.</em>&rdquo;</p> <p> <strong>REGISTRATION</strong></p> <p style="margin-left: 40px;"> <strong>To register</strong>: Click on the Registration link on the <a href="https://colossianforum.org/conference/politicsforum/" target="_blank">website</a>, or go directly to <a href="https://www.tfaforms.com/4680871">tfaforms.com/4680871</a> and enter your information.
