Living Honorably Among the Gentiles:
A Ministry-Faithful Presence in a Post-Christian Culture”—St. Peter addresses his first epistle to the Chosen Exiles of the Dispersion and invites them to consider what it looks like to follow Jesus in a Roman world that was in service of a
different lord. Peter’s words of admonition and encouragement to that fledgling first century church have an uncanny resonance for the church of the 21st century. As we increasingly find ourselves in a place of post-christendom marginalization in our culture, we need to listen to Peter’s advice about how to remain both faithful to Jesus and engaged with our world. In our plenary sessions and worship we will explore four marks of what faithful presence in a foreign culture looks like. For Peter, living honorably among the Gentiles is expressed through Hope, Holiness, Humility and Hospitality. These four will be the emphasis of our four worship/plenary sessions.
