Conferences

a Biblical thought...
"In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you." (Matthew 5:48)

a Book thought...
Orbiting is originality, rules-breaking, non-conformity, experimentation, and innovation. In Orbit is where invention happens. (p39 MacKenzie)
a Dave thought...
As we begin ACC today it is also interesting to note what other conferences are happening around the world. Starting tomorrow in San Diego, California is a conference on the nature of community. It is a group of creative people such as architects, builders, planners, artists and visionaries who gather to explore how they can improve the community in which we live. There is no hidden agenda but it is a place to ask questions and explore answers. If you want to know more check out thevineconference.com.

ACC is also a place to ask questions and explore answers but about The Salvation Army and your personal faith journey so if you are in Melbourne why not come along tonight to Box Hill at 7.30pm and here Commissioner James Knaggs.

Just a thought.

Before you can persuade people to "explore answers about...your personal faith journey", please provide convincing evidence that you will not be leading people down a dead end.

Why would someone attend ACC rather than say a Roman Catholic Church, a Buddhist temple, Scientology or an Islamic mosque?

I've heard of some really radical people who have rejected all of the above and looked to science and reason. I think they're in the minority, though.

As we all know, faith provides us with more answers about the world than science ever has.
