I don’t believe that the decline of the church is God’s will. I’m glad to say that I work for an institution that is taking seriously the need for church renewal in the U.S., Western Europe, and other places. This year on March 27th and 28th we’re launching the first in what we plan to be an annual conference on renewal, the Light the Fire conference. Our keynote speaker will be Leonard Sweet. Bishop Violet Fisher will preach during our opening worship, which will be held at the Fort McKinley campus of Ginghamsburg Church. I hope you can join us for what I anticipate will be an outstanding event.
