2017 District Conference:

Focusing On Revival

The Shenandoah District Conference on Oct 27 and 28 at Mill Creek Church of the Brethren (7600 Port Republic Road, Port Republic) has a new focus - taking a break from queries and resolutions that tend to divide us and instead focusing on what unites us: Christ, our foundation, our solid rock.

Friday's schedule is much the same as past years with the Milestones in Ministry dinner at 5 p.m. followed by worship, led by Moderator J. Diann Whetzel, on her conference theme of "Taking Spiritual Inventory."

Saturday will be a day of revival, featuring gifted preachers and inspiring music. Time devoted to business will be minimal. Insight sessions again will present us with ministries and opportunities for service. We will come together affirming "On Christ the Solid Rock We Stand."

Friday, Oct. 20, is the last day to register for District Conference. Delegates and non-delegates are expected to register in advance. Here is the registration form:

Words In Response To Charlottesville

Listen to the words of Jesus and our brother, the Apostle Paul:

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your mind and all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31 NIV 2005)

You are all sons/daughters of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for we all are one in Christ Jesus.  (Galatians 3:26-28 NIV 2005)
These words of scripture do not need explanation. In the spirit of these words, let us engage together in prayer for the horrific tragedy in Charlottesville and our nation:
  • Confess and repent together of any attitudes and behavior that is less than God's command to love our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Pray together, specifically, for our Church of the Brethren pastors who live and work in the immediate vicinity of Charlottesville. Pray for wisdom, compassion and discernment as they seek the face of Jesus together.
  • Pray that we will truly become the vision of Galatians 3. All barriers that divide will be dismantled under the power of the Holy Spirit and the strength of following Jesus together.
Seeking Christ together in the spirit of lament and grief,
John Jantzi
District Executive Minister
