THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
On October 29 and November 5 from 1:30-3pm, as an extension of our series Love Where You Live: The Art of Neighboring, Trinity will be hosting a workshop led by Peter Ong from Hope for New York.
We will explore the key ways God’s story is an unfolding of the church’s presence through God’s work of renewal and redemption in the midst of brokenness. What is the call of the church in the work of Kingdom building?
We will see God tracing his character through his unveiling of Hesed (loving-kindness, mercy), Mishpat (justice) and Shalom (holistic flourishing) as it reflects God’s character and vision for His creation. We will look at God’s call to the community of God to express Hesed, Mishpat, and Shalom, a call to flourishing for our communities and neighbors.
