Dear Allegheny Conference Friends,
We are excited to once again welcome all AMC friends to Celebration at Laurelville Mennonite Church Center, August 5-6-7, 2016.
Our theme, Centered in Christ, will encourage us to be drawn to our focal point, Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that we will recognize again that we are persistently being welcomed into the very nucleus of the living Word.
Henri Nouwen says it well:
“The farther the outward journey takes you the deeper the inward journey must be.”
“When we are securely rooted in personal intimacy with the Source of Life, it will be possible to remain flexible without being relativistic, convinced without being rigid, willing to confront without being offensive, gentle and forgiving without being soft, and true witnesses without being manipulative.”
After a one year AMC Celebration hiatus when many of us traveled to Kansas City for MCUSA assembly and to Harrisburg for Mennonite World Conference we are anticipating:
Grace and peace.
Cathy Spory, Moderator Marv Friesen, Moderator Elect
