13th September 2014 - One Day Conference "Mission and Minds: Cultural Challenge" - London

Conference Picture
This world is God’s world, and mission is joining God in his caring for, sustaining and transforming His world, with the goal of re-establishing harmony between God and his creation, including humankind. It is a privilege and joy to be part of God's mission in the university setting. We are focusing on crossing the boundary between academia and the church - this is a really important issue.
Purpose: To explore how to see academic work as part of God crossing cultures on His mission and delighting in using academics like us in this work

The war within

James T. Crouse writes of his conflicted emotions as a liberal southerner on a visit to Gettysberg with his family, between the bloody defeat suffered by the Confederacy and the beginning of an end to slavery in the USA.  He concludes, "... to be human is ... to forgive and to begrudge ... to love and to hate, to have faith and to doubt."

Mr Crouse has been Senior Lecturing Fellow at the Law School of Duke University, practises in aircraft accident litigation and is a veteran US Army aviator. He is a member of the United Methodist Church.
