Hello friends in the Pacific Northwest. Next week I will be flying to the USA to visit Oregon and Wyoming before heading over to Russia to check on the newly completed church building. While in Portland, I will be giving 2 talks that are open to the public.
THURSDAY JANUARY 31st
"Europe's Past...America's Future?: Secularism & Christianity in the 21st Century"
We will look at the rise of secularization and the decline of religious belief in Europe. We will ask the question whether the United States is following down the same path as Europe, or whether there are factors at play that can lead to religious re-vitalization in the coming decades. Is there hope for Europe and what are we to make of the growth of Islam ?
At 7PM Mt. Scott CHOG 10603 Henderson, Portland OR 9226
Free and Open to the Public.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 2nd
"The Challenge Facing 21st Century Missions"
From 10:30AM - to 2:30PM (Lunch Included---Please RSVP)
Hoodview CHOG 1530 Mount Hood Avenue, Woodburn, OR 97071
The Christian landscape around the world has changed and it calls for a re-calibration by North American mission-efforts. What is entailed in this re-calibration and how does Three Worlds offer a response to the challenges of the 21st Century. This talk is divided into two parts: The Challenge and the Solution.
Zach and Audrey Langford (3W-Liverpool) will be joining me at both events. We hope to see you there!
