TWO HIGHLIGHT SUMMER EVENTS AVAILABLE ON-LINE
American Baptists World Mission Conference
Peace Fellowship Annual Summer Conference
Two summer events that have become important to American Baptists will be available to more people than usual as Virtual Events.
The World Mission Conference, usually held at Green Lake, will be online for all from 3:00-3:30PM Pacific Time on July 14, 16, 21, 23, and 28. Presentations will address our international efforts in health assessments, issues in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in starvation and maternal and child mortality; programs of Thailand’s New Life Center; and support endeavors with the Baptists of India. Representatives of these programs will tell of their work.
A Regional Peace Conference on July 25 (2:00 PM Pacific Time) via the Internet will take the place of the annual peace gathering of the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, earlier planned for San Diego. Keynote speaker will be Luis N. Rivera Pagán, from Puerto Rico, obtained a doctorate in philosophy, with a concentration in religious studies, from Yale University (1970) and did postdoctoral studies at the University of Tübingen (Germany). He is a retired professor at the University of Puerto Rico, professor emeritus at Princeton Theological Seminary and professor emeritus at the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico. Luis has a deep passion for peace and justice that has led him to embody the theology he writes, making himself present in multiple spaces of protest and solidarity.
