#Occupy Empire: Anabaptism in God's Mission

From Eastern Mennonite University, 1200 Park Rd, Harrisonburg, VA 22802, USA
Scrub that dirty ol' empire away!
I hinted at it a few weeks ago. So now I'm very excited to announce that registration is now open for a mini-conference that my friend, Aaron Kauffman, and I are organizing as part of our senior capstone project at Eastern Mennonite Seminary...

#Occupy Empire: Anabaptism in God's Mission
April 13-14, 2012 - Eastern Mennonite Seminary
Anabaptism at its best has been a series of attempts both to live into God's in-breaking occupation and to faithfully occupy the empires of this fallen age, signaling the shalom to come. Anabaptists have gone about this work by imaginatively patterning their worship and witness after the New Testament communities of Jesus.

Come explore ways in which the Anabaptist tradition can help inspire faithful occupation in today's world. Interdisciplinary academic presentations will be infused with worship and testimonies to open our minds and spirits to where God is calling us into mission in the midst of empire.

Keynote speakers: Isaac Villegas, Chris Haw, Nekeisha Alexis-Baker, and Janna Hunter-Bowman. (See full list of speakers.)
