In just a few weeks, the 2013 Brethren in Christ Study Conference — sponsored by the Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist and Wesleyan Studies at Messiah College — will convene at the Grantham Church, on November 7-8.

This year, the conference theme is “Do Justice: A Biblical Mandate for the Church.”

The conference will open on Thursday, November 7, at 7:00pm, with a evening lecture by Rev. Dr. Woody Dalton, pastor of the Harrisburg Brethren in Christ Church. Woody’s talk will focus on “The Biblical Call to Do Justice.” This lecture is free and open to the public. Come! Bring your friends, your small group… or your whole congregation for that matter!

The conference will continue on Friday, November 8, with an all-day event filled with interesting plenary sessions and informative and interactive breakouts. You can check out the full schedule here.

Those interested in attending the full-day conference need to pre-register (along with a $30 registration fee) by this Thursday, October 24. You can do so by sending in the registration form or by contacting the Institute.

I hope to see many readers of The Search for Piety and Obedience at this year’s event! I’ll be there (of course) so please stop me to say “hello!”
