Christ-like and Meek in a World Torn by Violence and Discord

Friday, September 26- Sunday, September 28, 2014

Conferences focus on non-violence and gentleness as integral to authentic Christian spirituality. The humble Christ calls out, "Come to me…and learn from me, for I am meek and humble in heart." To imitate Christ requires a certain kind of meekness, which is not weakness, but demands courage and strength (fortitude), virtues necessary for peace when violence is more popular; to pursue justice through reconciliation rather than retribution; understanding and respect, when Christianity for some is reduced to divisive apologetics; courtesy and mildness in a political landscape bereft of civility and collaboration.
