Dikaios and Discipleship: Righteousness, Justice, and a History of Faith

Registration is open for “Dikaios and Discipleship: Righteousness, Justice, and a History of Faith,” a pre-Annual Conference pilgrimage on July 3-4 in Cincinnati, Ohio. “Cincinnati is interwoven with the complicated history of race in our nation,” said an announcement of the event, sponsored by the Intercultural Ministries office of the Church of the Brethren, a part of the Discipleship Ministries of the denomination. “Christians along the Ohio River have wrestled with scripture in making decisions about how to live out their faith in the context of slavery, Jim Crow, and the ongoing manifestations of white supremacy. Many who participated in the Underground Railroad did so because their faith insisted on the sanctity of life and that we are all equals before God. Yet as recently as 2001, there have been protests as people struggle to be recognized as equal citizens before the law. Join us on a scripture-inspired tour of a region that has monuments to the Confederacy and a museum celebrating the Underground Railroad.” Go to www.cognitoforms.com/ChurchOfTheBrethren1/DikaiosDiscipleship .
